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 fund manager expects that at least 80% of the fund will be invested in sustainable investments with an environmental objective.
The fund is actively managed and its benchmark is the MSCI World Net Return Index. Benchmark is not an ESG benchmark and is not consistent with the ESG Criteria and Impact Criteria.

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.
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 Prospectus.
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.
