  • We believe technology is the science of solving problems and responsible innovation and disruption can be a positive force.
  • Our deep knowledge and extensive experience enables us to navigate the technology hype cycle to identify persistent, underappreciated growth opportunities that provide solutions to the global challenges faced by humanity – technology for good.

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term (5 years or more) by investing in technology-related companies that contribute to the development of a sustainable global economy.

More

The Fund invests at least 90% of its assets in shares (equities) or equity-related securities of technology-related companies, whose products and services are considered by the Investment Manager as contributing to positive environmental or social change, thereby having an impact on the development of a sustainable global economy. The Fund’s investment universe is defined by technology-related companies that derive at least 50% of their current or future expected revenues from the sustainable technology themes identified by the Investment Manager (as further outlined in Investment Strategy section). The Fund will avoid investing in companies that the Investment Manager considers could contribute to significant environmental or societal harm. The Fund may also invest in other assets including investment grade government bonds, cash and money market instruments. The investment manager may use derivatives to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently. The Fund is actively managed with reference to the MSCI ACWI Information Technology Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this can provide a useful comparator for assessing the Fund’s performance. The Investment Manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index, but at times the Fund may hold investments similar to the index.

Note: You should not make investment decisions based solely on marketing materials. You should read the Prospectus and the Product Highlights Sheet of the Fund for more details of the investment risks and seek independent professional advice where appropriate.
