Seeks to capture the structural decarbonisation growth story: Investing in companies that are driving the transition to a low carbon world.
This Share Class is designed as a hedging solution and exclusively reserved for selected feeder funds established in Brazil. The shares will be denominated in US Dollar (USD), the Fund's base currency. The Share Class will aim to provide exposure to Brazilian Real (“BRL”) by converting the net asset value of the Share Class into BRL using financial derivative instruments. As a result, the net asset value is expected to fluctuate in line with the exchange rate between BRL and USD. This fluctuation will be reflected in the performance of the Share Class, and therefore such performance may differ significantly from the performance of the other share classes of the Fund. Additionally, the Share Class will not protect against a decline in the values of the currencies of the underlying investments. There can be no assurance that the hedging solution will be successful, nor will it offer a perfect hedge for a Brazilian feeder fund.
Commodity prices can be extremely volatile and losses may be made.
The portfolio invests in a relatively small number of individual holdings. This may mean wider fluctuations in value than more broadly invested portfolios.
Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of investments and any related income.
The use of derivatives is not intended to increase the overall level of risk. However, the use of derivatives may still lead to large changes in value and includes the potential for large financial loss. A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations which may also lead to a financial loss.
These markets carry a higher risk of financial loss than more developed markets as they may have less developed legal, political, economic or other systems.
The value of equities (e.g. shares) and equity-related investments may vary according to company profits and future prospects as well as more general market factors. In the event of a company default (e.g. insolvency), the owners of their equity rank last in terms of any financial payment from that company.
Sustainable, impact or other sustainability-focused portfolios consider specific factors related to their strategies in assessing and selecting investments. As a result, they will exclude certain industries and companies that do not meet their criteria. This may result in their portfolios being substantially different from broader benchmarks or investment universes, which could in turn result in relative investment performance deviating significantly from the performance of the broader market.
