What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests mainly in equity securities of companies throughout the world which recognise and adapt to the long-term financial risks and opportunities presented by climate change and resource depletion. Such securities have historically been subject to significant price movements that may occur suddenly due to market or company-specific factors. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate significantly over relatively short time periods.
  • Other significant risks include:
    Foreign Currency risk: the risk of loss arising from exchange-rate fluctuations or due to exchange control regulations.
    Derivative Instruments risk: the risk of loss in an instrument where a small change in the value of the underlying investment may have a larger impact on the value of such instrument. Derivatives may involve additional liquidity, credit and counterparty risks.
    Emerging markets risk: the risk related to investing in countries that have less developed political, economic, legal and regulatory systems, and that may be impacted by political/economic instability, lack of liquidity or transparency, or safekeeping issues.
