Type of screening

All funds include negative/exclusionary screening when determining the investment universe. Data is typically sourced from data providers such as Bloomberg and sell side analysts.

Screened by


The funds will actively seek and select only companies that offer and can display positive ESG characteristics. Companies can also be included for carrying out  activities or operating in a sector that clearly provides a net benefit to society or the environment.

Screened by

Compliance with the UN Global Compact Principles for business is part of the fund’s prospectus and thus any changes would need to be approved by the authorised corporate director. We would then notify the Fund’s investors in writing.
