About the fund
The investment objective of the fund is to seek to provide both capital growth and income by tracking the performance of the FTSE All-World ex CW Climate Balanced Factor Index (the "Index").
The fund invests almost exclusively in the shares of companies that make up the Index. The Index consists of a sub-set of shares of the FTSE All-World Index, excluding controversial weapons companies.The Index is alternatively weighted to give greater weight to companies that score well against four selected stock factors: value, quality, low volatility and small size. The Index also gives greater weight to companies that meet positive carbon and environmental criteria. This means the fund will invest more in companies that meet these criteria, and less in companies that do not.
The manager may exclude companies from the fund which do not meet the manager's "Climate Impact Pledge" to encourage strong governance and sustainable strategies. The number of companies excluded will be managed to avoid tracking error.
The fund may invest in the shares of companies which are reasonably expected, at the manager’s discretion, to become part of the Index.
An overview of the Index is available on FTSE’s website
