Investment Scope

The fund is classified as a financial product with a sustainable investment objective as described in Article 9 of EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. The fund mainly invests in a portfolio of green bonds and money market instruments of high quality (with a rating of AAA to BBB-) mainly denominated in Euro. Green bonds are bond instruments where the proceeds will be applied to finance or re-finance in part or in full new and/or existing projects that are beneficial to the environment. The fund may invest in bonds with a higher risk (with a quality rating lower than BBB-) up to 10% of its net assets. To determine our eligible universe, we check if the selected bonds adhere to the Green Bond Principles as formulated by the International Capital Market Association. Furthermore issuers are screened using exclusionary screening. We do not invest in issuers involved in activities including but not limited to, the development, production, maintenance or trade of controversial weapons, the production of tobacco products, thermal coal mining and/or oil sands production. Further, more stringent restrictions are applicable for investments in issuers involved in activities related to gambling, weapons, adult entertainment, fur & specialty leather, Arctic drilling and shale oil & gas. Issuers with severe environmental, social and governance (ESG) controversies or poor ESG ratings and policies are excluded. Measured over a period of 5 years we aim to beat the performance of the benchmark Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Euro Green Bond Index. The benchmark is a broad representation of our investment universe. The fund can also include bonds that are not part of the benchmark universe. We actively manage the fund with a focus on bond selection. We combine our analysis on specific issuers of bonds with a broader ESG and market analysis to construct the optimal portfolio. We aim to exploit differences in valuations of issuers of bonds within sectors and differences in valuations between sectors and different quality segments (ratings). Therefore the fund positioning can materially deviate from the benchmark. As issuer specific risk is an important driver of performance, we subject all issuers in the investable universe to an in-depth analysis of business and financial risk. For risk management purposes, sector and country deviation limits are maintained relative to the benchmark. You can sell your participation in this fund on each (working) day on which the value of the units is calculated, which for this fund occurs daily. The fund does not aim to provide you with a dividend. It will reinvest all earnings. Recommendation: this fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 3 years.

Risk and Reward Profile

Historical data, such as is used for calculating this indicator, may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile of this fund. There is no guarantee that the risk indicator will remain unchanged, it may shift over time. The lowest category of risk does not mean that the investment is riskfree. This fund is in this specific category because of the behaviour of the product during the  measuring period. The overall market risk, taking into account past performances and future potential evolution of the markets, associated with bonds used to reach the investment objective is considered medium. These financial instruments are impacted by various factors. These include, but are not limited to, the development of the financial market, the economic development of issuers of these financial instruments who are themselves affected by the general world economic situation and the economic and political conditions in each country. Expected credit risk, the risk of failure of the issuers of underlying investments is medium. The Sub-Fund’s liquidity risk is set to medium. Liquidity risks arise when a specific underlying investment is difficult to sell. Moreover, currency fluctuation may impact highly the Sub-Fund’s performance. No guarantee is provided as to the recovery of the initial investment.
