Objective

The primary investment objective is to maximise total return (income plus capital). All investments will meet the Fund's ethical criteria. This means the Fund avoids investing in companies that it decides harm people, society, animals or the environment. Further details of the ethical criteria are set out in the Prospectus at Appendix D. The Fund invests predominantly in the shares of UK companies. It is likely to invest in the shares of smaller companies because of its ethical criteria.
