Fund Aims

Objective: The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the Royal London Sustainable Leaders Trust - the underlying fund.

Underlying Fund Objective: The trust aims to achieve capital growth over the medium term, which should be considered as a period of 3-5 years, by investing predominantly in a diverse portfolio of shares across any economic sector where at least 80% of the assets will be invested in UK companies listed on the London Stock Exchange that are deemed to make a positive contribution to society. The scheme is actively managed meaning that the fund manager will use their investment expertise to select investments that will adhere to the manager’s ethical and sustainable investment policy.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

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 product charges, or 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 net income reinvested. The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.

Fund Specific Risks

Concentrated Portfolio

The fund may invest in a relatively smaller number of stocks. This stock concentration may carry more risk than funds spread across a larger number of companies.

Smaller Companies

The fund invests in smaller companies. Smaller companies shares can be more volatile and less liquid than larger company shares, so smaller companies funds can carry more risk.

Value of Investments

The value of investments, and any income can fall, as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invested. Neither capital nor income is guaranteed.

Investments Long Term

Investments should be regarded as long term and are not suitable for money which may be needed in the short term, you should always have a sufficient cash reserve.

Exchange Rate

This fund invests in securities outside the UK. The value of investments and any income from them may therefore decrease or increase as a result of changes in exchange rates between currencies.

Ethical Restrictions

The fund is unable to invest in certain sectors and companies due to the ethical criteria used to select investments for the fund.

Returns Are Not Guaranteed

What you receive when you sell your investment is not guaranteed; it depends on how your investments perform.

Inflation

Inflation will reduce the real value of your investments in future.

Taxation and Tax Relief

Levels of taxation and tax relief are subject to change.
