Aim of investment The sub-fund KBC Eco Fund World invests at least 75% in a widespread international diversified selection of sustainable companies.
Investment strategy Stock selection is subject of the best-in-class-approach with specific weighting of environmental criterias.
Investment process The evaluation of the companies is based on a set of criteria with 5 categories: long-term economic policy, environment, corporate governance, internal social policy and human rights and international labor standards.
Within these categories the criterias are weighted differently depending on their relevancy. The categories itself are weighted equally with one fifth (20%) into the overall assessment.

For each industry sector 40% of the best companies will be included in the investment portfolio.
For the mining and energy sector only 20% of the best companies are included. The bottom 10% of the companies are also excluded (left out).
A reevaluation of the selected companies according to their environmental impact is done in order to achieve a hierachy. Furthermore only the best 50% of the companies will finally be chosen.
The best-in-class approach is also combined with the general exclusion criteria for KBC SRI funds. The guidelines for Nuclear Energy by KBC AM must also be met.
The SRI screening is independent from portfolio management through an internal team of analysts. The results will be submitted to an independent panel of leading scientists and experts from different disciplines who decide on the overall investment portfolio. The selection of individual stocks by the fund manager is based on a quantitative and fundamental financial analysis as mentioned before.
