Objectives and Approach

The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. The Fund invests globally at least 70% of its total assets in the equity securities (e.g. shares) of companies engaged in any activity forming part of the food and agriculture value chain as described in the prospectus. The Fund invests in companies which are actively combatting global sustainability challenges within the nutrition theme across the sustainable nutrition trends described in the prospectus. The companies are rated by the Investment Adviser (IA) based on their ability to manage the risks and opportunities associated with the nutrition theme and their environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk and opportunity credentials. The Fund adopts a “best in class” approach to sustainable investing. This means that the Fund selects the best issuers (from an ESG perspective) for each relevant sector of activities (without excluding any sector of activities). More than 90% of the issuers of securities the Fund invests in are ESG rated or have been analysed for ESG purposes.The Fund may gain limited exposure to issuers that do not meet the nutrition and/or the ESG criteria described above. The investment universe of the Fund is represented by any company worldwide which, in the opinion of the IA, prioritises changing consumer preferences towards nutrition as a key strategic driver of its business (“Factset Nutrition Universe”). The weighted average ESG rating of the Fund will be higher than the ESG rating of the Factset Nutrition Universe after eliminating at least 20% of the least well-rated securities from the Factset Nutrition Universe. The IA may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets) for investment purposes in order to achieve the investment objective of the Fund, and/or to reduce risk within the Fund’s portfolio, reduce investment costs and generate additional income. The Fund may, via FDIs, generate varying amounts of market leverage (i.e. where the Fund gains market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). Any ESG rating or analysis referenced above will apply only to the underlying securities of FDI’s used by the Fund The Fund is actively managed. The IA has discretion to select the Fund's investments and is not constrained by any benchmark in this process. The MSCI All Countries World Index should be used by investors to compare the performance of the Fund. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for short-term investment.

        Important Information
        Headline performance can mask the true characteristics of a fund. Without fully understanding how a fund is managed, you may inadvertently become exposed to an undesirable level of risk to your capital. Some funds carry a dilution levy which reduces the number of units realised on any initial investment as an initial charge. If this fund carries such a levy it should be detailed in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID), which we must provide and you should read before investing.

        The charts and performance data shown are supplied by an external data provider and may contain data that appears to precede the introduction of the clean unit class for this fund. In such cases, historical data has been synthesised at the entire discretion of that external provider as realistically as possible using historical data recorded against the previously available commission-paying version of the fund, adjusting for fees in the process.
