Future World Fund
This Fund is invested wholly or predominantly in ordinary shares that are constituents of the FTSE All-World Global Equity Index.
The objective of the Fund is to invest systematically in a globally diversified portfolio of quoted company shares; the Fund will aim to invest in companies which exhibit characteristics that have historically led to higher returns or lower risk than the market as a whole, and companies which are less carbon-intensive or earn green revenues.
LGIM has made a commitment to address climate change by engaging directly with the largest companies in the world who hold the key to meeting the 2 degree climate change target. The companies will be assessed by LGIM for robustness of their strategies, governance and transparency. This is known as LGIM's Climate Impact Pledge. Within this Fund's investment policy, companies that fail to meet LGIM's minimum standards in low carbon transition and corporate governance standards may be excluded.
The Fund will exclude shares issued by manufacturers of controversial weapons (as defined by the index provider). In 2018, we intend to launch a number of FWFs which will invest across a broad range of strategies and asset classes with a global reach.
