What about the other Sustainable Development Goals?
The UN SDG are made up of 17 goals and 169 targets to achieve peace and prosperity for people and the planet. Our Fund aligns with these goals and targets, but it doesn't mean it will be equally targeting or supporting them all at once.
Our goal for the Fund is to invest in companies that advance these social and environmental goals, as well as providing financial returns. This means our fund manager carefully selects equities that meet both. The income portion of the Fund holds green bonds that are invested in environmental projects, like renewable energy - we'll discuss this in our next blog!
