Objectives and Approach

The Fund aims to provide income with the prospect of some investment growth over the long term (5 years or more), through investment in bonds that are deemed to be supporting and funding socially beneficial activities and development, primarily in the UK. The Fund is actively managed, and seeks to maximise its investment exposure to socially beneficial activities and development, based on assessments produced under the Fund’s Social Assessment Methodology (developed by The Big Issue Group and Columbia Threadneedle Investments). The Social Assessment Methodology ensures that social impact considerations are integrated into the investment decision-making process. Investment is directed towards eight social outcome areas: housing and property; community services; education, learning and skills; employment and training; financial inclusion; health and social care; transport and communications infrastructure, utilities and the environment. Eligible Investments are assessed to establish an overall view of the investment’s “social intensity”. Some debt securities will have more direct and tangible social benefits than others, however those selected for investment are considered to have net positive impacts. A Social Advisory Committee regularly reviews the Social Assessment Methodology and the assessments carried out and may propose amendments or updates over time. An annual report is made available to investors which provides a summary of the Fund’s social impact performance. The Fund may invest in bonds (usually investment grade) issued by international, public, private or voluntary and/or charitable sector organisations. Cash or near cash will be retained within the Fund for efficient management, and similarly deposits and money market instruments may be held for this reason.

        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.
