Objectives and Approach

The objective is to produce capital growth over the long term.Investment will be primarily in equities of companies whose products or behaviour, in the ACD’s opinion, make a positive social impact. This will include companies addressing critical challenges in areas such as, but not limited to; education, social inclusion, healthcare and the environment. The Sub-fund may also be invested in other transferable securities, money market instruments, collective investment schemes, deposits, cash and near cash. The Sub-fund will be invested globally and the portfolio will be concentrated.Investments will be made following a process of fundamental business analysis by the Investment Advisor using its own research to identify companies where delivering a positive impact is core to their business and whose products or services represent an improvement to the status quo.

          Important Information
          Headline performance can mask the true characteristics of a fund. Without fully understanding how a fund is managed, you may inadvertanly 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 graphs shown are supplied by an external data provider and may contain data that appears to preced the introduction of the clean unit class for this fund. In such cases, historial 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.
