Fund Aims

Objective: The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the M&G PP Positive Impact fund (the underlying fund).

Underlying fund objective: The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the M&G Positive Impact Fund, an M&G OEIC. That fund aims to provide a combination of capital growth and income, that is higher than the MSCI ACWI Index over any five-year period, net of the Ongoing Charge Figure. At least 80% of the fund is invested in the shares of companies from anywhere in the world (including emerging markets), across any sector and of any size. The fund usually holds shares in fewer than 40 companies. The fund invests over the long term in companies that make a positive social and/or environmental impact alongside a financial return. Sustainability and impact considerations are fundamental in the stock selection process. The fund embraces the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals framework and invests in a range of companies focused on areas including climate action, pollution reduction, education and working conditions. Derivatives may be used to manage risks, reduce costs and to manage the impact of changes in currency exchange rates on the fund’s investments.

Important Information

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

Source of portfolio data: Broadridge. Source of performance data: FE fundinfo. We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with gross income reinvested. The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.

This factsheet is intended for the trustees, sponsors, advisers and members of occupational pension schemes using Prudential group pension contracts and Prudential grouped personal pensions and Stakeholder pension contracts.

If you are not familiar with any of the investment terminology included, then please contact an adviser. Investors should refer to their scheme documentation (e.g. Fund Guide) for fund availability, investment strategy, any scheme information and charges. Every care has been taken in populating this output, however it must be appreciated that neither Broadridge, Prudential nor their sources guarantee the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of this information or make any warranties regarding results from its usage.

These risk ratings have been developed by Prudential to help provide an indication of a fund’s potential level of risk and reward based on the type of assets which may be held by the fund. Other companies may use different descriptions and as such these risk ratings should not be considered as generic across the fund management industry.

We regularly review our fund risk ratings, so they may change in the future. If, in our view, there is a material change in the fund's level of risk, for example due to a significant change to the assets held by the fund or in the way the fund is managed, we will provide information on the new risk rating. We recommend that you make sure you understand the risk rating of any fund before you invest.

You should also consider discussing your decision and the appropriateness of a fund's risk rating with an adviser.

These funds offer a diverse geographical spread of equity investment or have multi-asset strategies with a specialist focus (e.g. ethical). The equity funds within this category will have greater overseas exposure and underlying volatility than the "medium" sector.
