We recognise the important role that environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations play in the creation of superior long-term investment returns. We also believe that investors have a critical role to play alongside policymakers and business in meeting the many ethical and sustainability challenges facing today's world. Our responsible funds seek to be part of the answer to these challenges and make a positive contribution to society.
The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up as a result of market or currency movements and investors may not get back the original amount invested. Screening out sectors or companies may result in less diversification and hence more volatility in investment values.
