Fund aim

The objective of the Fund is to provide a combination of growth and income by tracking the performance of the Solactive L&G ESG UK Index (the “Index”).

Benchmark

Solactive L&G ESG UK Index

  • What does it invest in? Invests in shares of UK companies as represented by the Index, which is alternatively weighted to give greater weight to companies that score well against environmental, social and governance criteria. This means the Fund will invest more in companies that score well against these criteria, and less in companies that do not.
  • How does it invest? Passively managed, to replicate the performance of the Index. As part of the Future World* range, the fund incorporates our Climate Impact Pledge, a targeted engagement process, and may exclude companies if engagement proves unsuccessful.

    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    The fund could lose money if any institution providing services such as acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the fund.

    Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains.

    The fund may have underlying investments that are valued in currencies that are different from sterling (British pounds). Exchange rate fluctuations will impact the value of your investment. Currency hedging techniques may be applied to reduce this impact but may not entirely eliminate it.

    Where companies in the Index are excluded from the fund as a result of the Climate Impact Pledge, this may affect the ability of the manager to closely track the performance of the Index.

    Index disclaimer

    The financial instrument is not sponsored, promoted, sold or supported in any other manner by Solactive AG nor does Solactive AG offer any express or implicit guarantee or assurance either with regard to the results of using the Index and/or Index trade mark or the Index Price at any time or in any other respect.
