The Sustainable Future Process (Equities)

In a fast changing world, we believe the companies that will survive and thrive are those which improve people’s quality of life, be it through medical, technological or educational advances; driving improvements in the efficiency with which we use increasingly scarce resources; and helping to build a more stable, resilient and prosperous economy.

Risk warning

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. • Do remember that the value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested. • The Fund has holdings which are denominated in currencies other than Sterling and may be affected by movements in exchange rates. Consequently the value of an investment may rise or fall in line with the exchange rates. • Investments in emerging markets may involve a higher element of risk due to less well regulated markets and political and economic instability.

• The information and opinions provided should not be construed as advice for investment in any product or security mentioned.  • Always research your own investments and consult with a regulated investment adviser before investing.
