Risks

Counterparty Risk: The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Share Class to financial loss.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Risk: The benchmark index's ESG rating assessment of an issuer's performance is intended to be relative to the standards of the issuer's industry peers. No exclusion (apart from controversial weapons) is made on the basis of how ethical a particular industry/sector is perceived to be. Investors should therefore make a personal ethical assessment of the Index prior to investing in the fund.

Equity Risk: The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events.
