ACT Range

Invest with purpose to support the transition to a more sustainable economy


Investing in companies and projects that are leading the way to a more sustainable and just world not only powers the transition to a net-zero economy but also aims to ensure no one is left behind in that transition, as well as providing the potential to deliver more sustainable financial returns over the long-term.

Our ACT range is our most focused ESG offering. Alongside financial returns, the range aims to target specific sustainability goals around people and planet. Investment decisions are guided by both the financial goals and either ESG themes or measurable, positive impact. To be included in the ACT range, strategies must fall under Article 9 of the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (‘SFDR’)*, the most demanding and stringent of the EU regulatory disclosures for sustainable investment funds.

A common framework

All strategies in the range apply the same key principles which form a common framework underpinning the range, as shown below:


*The product categorization is provided based on the basis of the European Directive (EU) 2019/2088 on the sustainability related disclosures in the financial services sector (“SFDR Regulation”) and state of knowledge at the time of creation of this document and may evolve.
