Introduction

The objective of the Fund is to generate a return over the long term by investing primarily in equities and equity-related investments of companies which promote and implement good employment opportunities and practices. It will invest in a concentrated portfolio of companies incorporated or domiciled in the UK, or have significant assets or derive significant revenues or profits from UK operations, which have the potential to generate a return over the long term and create a positive measurable impact by the promotion or implementation of good employment opportunities and practices.The impact criteria will typically include paying above average wage rates, being located in deprived areas, offering training opportunities and / or employing young people with the majority of these being in the UK. The fund is actively managed by our investment team, who will select stocks, without reference to index weight or size, to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Due to the concentrated nature of the fund investors must be willing to accept a relatively high degree of stock specific risk.The impact criteria applicable to the Fund are set out in an Impact Policy available from the ACD and may be amended from time to time as considered necessary. Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of overseas assets held in the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
