*The benchmark is a comparator against which the fund’s performance can be measured. It is a net return index which includes dividends after the deduction of withholding taxes. The index has been chosen as the fund’s benchmark as it best reﬂects the scope of the fund’s investment policy. The benchmark is used solely to measure the fund’s performance and does not constrain the fund's portfolio construction. The fund is actively managed. The investment manager has 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 benchmark is not an ESG benchmark and is not consistent with the ESG Criteria. For unhedged and currency hedged share classes, the benchmark is shown in the share class currency.
**The estimated ongoing charge is based on expenses as at 28.02.23.
This is a marketing communication. Please refer to the prospectus and to the KID before making any final investment decision.
The value and income from 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. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve its objective and you may get back less than you originally invested.
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 can be exposed to diﬀerent currencies. Movements in currency exchange rates may adversely aﬀect the value of your investment.
ESG information from third-party data providers may be incomplete, inaccurate or unavailable. There is a risk that the investment manager may incorrectly assess a security or issuer, resulting in the incorrect inclusion or exclusion of a security in the portfolio of the fund.
Further details of the risks that apply to the fund can be found in the fund's KID and Prospectus.
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.
