Aim of investment The Fund aims to achieve exposure to equity securities (e.g. shares) with a measurable positive societal impact. This means that the Fund seeks to invest in shares of companies which make a measurable positive difference to society in the areas of health, welfare and the environment.

Investment strategy
The Fund seeks to gain at least 80% of its investments exposure to
equity securities of companies domiciled in, or the main business of
which is in, developed countries worldwide. This is achieved by
investing at least 80% of its total assets in equity securities and other equity-related securities and, may, when determined appropriate, invest in money market instruments (MMIs), deposits and cash. The equity-related securities include financial derivative instruments (FDIs). The MMIs may be issued by governments, government agencies, companies and supranationals (e.g. the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) and will be investment grade at the time of purchase.
Investment process As one of the pioneers of scientific investing, SAE's investment process combines the best of both traditional and quantitative investment approaches, blending a wealth of insights into highly diversified and balanced portfolios. Technology enables SAE investment teams to analyse vast amounts of information from both traditional and more unique "big" data sources on a daily basis. SAE employs both an Impact model and an investment return model during this process. BlackRock's SAE impact methodology seeks to measure select societal outcomes of companies. Where one or more measurable societal impact outcomes are identified in an eligible company, that information will be considered, together with forecasts of return, risk and transaction costs, as well as other information, in determining whether the weight of an investment in that company will be higher or lower than its benchmark weight. To evaluate a company using the SAE impact approach, BlackRock measures a series of societal impact outcomes. The societal impact outcomes utilised in the process may change over time and one or more outcomes may not be relevant to all companies that are eligible for investment. The impact approach does not attempt to capture all positive or negative outcomes, rather those that, in BlackRock's opinion, can be measured and have an investment thesis associated with the outcome. BlackRock determines which outcomes to include in the model and what changes are made in the model over time. The stock universe is scored daily across both impact and investment return insights. The impact model seeks to incorporate measurable outcomes that depict how companies interact with the stakeholders around them. The returns model forecasts financial attributes that seek to deliver outperformance based on SAE's research insights applied across the investment universe.
