Aim of investment Besides the market-driven income the fund aims for a long-term capital growth.
Investment strategy The fund invests primarily in equities and debt securities. The selection will take into account environmental and social as well as economic criteria.
Investment process The selection will take into account environmental and social as well as economic criteria. It uses a comprehensive process for determining the sustainability of a fund. First, exclusion criteria are a major hurdle for companies and countries. As an
example companies producing arms or nuclear power are excluded. For country investment we ensure, that states do not violate human rights systematically. In a second step, an analysis by the best-in-class approach is used to identify those companies that put sustainability in their area at best. From the remaining investment universe the fund manager selects individual attractive securities. The analysis of the investment universe under the sustainably point of view is made by imug, an independent company that has a global network with partner companies. The Fund may change its investment focus depending on market conditions. So the opportunities of the market can be used.
Positive criteria Companies or countries that do not infringe at least one exclusion criterion, have to give a convincing overall picture of environmental; social and economic sustainability in the sum. To this end, there is no general positive criteria due to the individuality of the company; its products, its strategy and due to its geographical locations; It is always an individual assessment . no best- in-class.
