The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact relate to four key areas which we have aligned our corporate responsibility strategies and operations to. In addition to anti-corruption and human rights, our aim is to help end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.

The performance is calculated for the portfolio. The individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, the actual investment date, the date of reinvestment and dividend withholding tax. All fund performance data are on a NAV to NAV basis, net income reinvested and net of ongoing charges and transaction costs. Data is not available for the time periods with no % growth stated. In case a share class is created after the fund's launch date, a simulated past performance is used, based upon the performance of an existing share class within the fund, taking into account the difference in the ongoing charges and the portfolio transaction costs, and including the impact of any performance fees if applicable.
Annualised return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the period measured.
