Investing in the solutions to climate challenges
Fund manager, Randeep Somel gives an overview of the fund and answers five key questions.
At least 80% of the fund is invested in the shares of companies, across any sector and of any size, that are based, or do most of their business, in developed markets. The fund is concentrated and usually holds shares in fewer than 40 companies. All companies are assessed on their investment credentials and ability to deliver solutions to the climate change challenge, based on M&G’s proprietary impact assessment methodology.
The benchmark of the fund is the MSCI World Index. The benchmark is a target against which the fund’s financial performance can be measured. The index has been chosen as benchmark as it best reflects the financial aspects of the fund’s investment policy. The benchmark does not constrain the fund's portfolio construction. The fund is actively managed. The fund manager ha`s complete freedom in choosing which investments to buy, hold and sell in the fund. The fund’s holdings may deviate significantly from the benchmark’s constituents.

The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
The fund can be exposed to different currencies. Movements in currency exchange rates may adversely affect the value of your investment.
The fund holds a small number of investments, and therefore a fall in the value of a single investment may have a greater impact than if it held a larger number of investments.
The fund invests mainly in company shares and is therefore likely to experience larger price fluctuations than funds that invest in bonds and/or cash.
Investing in this fund means acquiring units or shares in a fund, and not in a given underlying asset such as a building or shares of a company, as these are only the underlying assets owned by the fund.
