Sustainable investment in stocks and bonds…

Investment Policy

The fund mainly invests in a diversified portfolio of European stocks and Eurozone fixed income instruments from companies and issuers pursuing policies of sustainable development observing environmental, social and governance principles. To determine our eligible sustainable investment universe, companies are screened using exclusionary screening whereby companies with serious and structural issues concerning controversial behavior and activities are excluded. Only countries with the best environmental, social and governance scores are eligible to invest in. The fund is actively managed against an investment profile of 50% bonds denominated in Euro (benchmark Barclays Euro Aggregate) and 50% European stocks (benchmark MSCI Europe Index Net). Measured over a period of five years we aim to beat the performance of these benchmarks on an unhedged basis. There is no benchmark for this specific hedged share class as we apply a currency hedging strategy. By hedging our currencies we aim to avoid currency risks for Euro (EUR) investors. We hedge all currency risks in the portfolio of the sub-fund to the reference currency of this share class (EUR). A currency hedge consists of taking an offsetting position in another currency. The fund strives to add value via three approaches: (1) Tactical allocation between and within stocks and bonds, (2) Selection of companies and governments which combine respect for environmental principles, social principles (e.g. human rights, non-discrimination, fight against child labor) and governance principles with a financial performance, (3) Decisions aimed at portfolio diversification and risk management. You can sell your participation in this fund on each (working) day on which the value of the units is calculated, which for this fund occurs daily. The fund does not aim to provide you with a dividend. It will reinvest all earnings.

Net Asset Value

The net asset value is calculated in Belgium each bank working day. The net asset value is published every public banking business day in Belgium in the financial press, as well as on the BeAMA website (http://www.beama.be/en/nav). It is also available at the Management Company’s registered address and over the counter from your financial services provider.

A swing price may be applied. Swing pricing aims to reduce the dilution effect brought about when significant operations within a sub- fund compel its manager to buy or sell its underlying assets. These transactions give rise to transaction fees and taxes that have an effect on the fund’s value, as well as on all its investors. Where swing pricing is applied, the sub-fund’s net asset value is adjusted by a particular amount when the capital flow exceeds a certain threshold (the swing factor). This amount is designed to offset expected transaction fees resulting from the difference between incoming and outgoing capital. Swing pricing is only used on rare occasions, if at all.
