7IM Sustainable Balance Fund
As at 31 October 2020

Investment Objective

The fund aims to provide a balance of income and capital growth.

Investment Process

The fund assesses environmental, social and governance factors in determining what assets to invest in.  As part of this, the fund employs a two stage screening process comprising of investment restrictions and ethical conduct screening.

The first stage of the screening process ensures companies from certain industries or with significant exposure, more than 10% of revenues, to certain activities (such as alcohol and gambling) are precluded from investment at the outset.

The second stage screens the remaining investment universe to identify companies which, although in acceptable industries, nonetheless exhibit unacceptable conduct (such as corruption or poor labour practices).  Positive screening is then applied to identify companies which exhibit positive ethical conduct (such as sustainable environmental practices and conscientiousness with regard to human rights).

For full details on the fund’s investment process please refer to the prospectus.

What You Need To Consider

Prior to investing, you need to consider the level of risk you are prepared to take, how much growth you want to achieve, and over what time period. If you have a long time to grow your investments you might be able to ride out market ups and downs better than someone who needs their money in just 5 years. You should regularly reassess the suitability of your investments to ensure that they continue to meet your investment goals and suit your time horizon. You should be aware that there can be no guarantees. The value of investments may go up and down and you may get back less than you invested originally.

Fund Availability And Risk Mapping

The 7IM funds are available via the majority of the major wraps, platforms and life and pension wrappers. Additionally, we have mapped our funds to a range of the most frequently used risk profiling tools. If you would like further information relating to either of these areas, please call us on 020 7760 8777. Our funds are rated by a number of research and rating firms.

**7IM’s funds are mapped against a selection of third party risk profiling tools to assist advisers as part of suitability assessments for clients. Such tools are however only one aspect of an adviser’s suitability process and other such as the clients’ investment term / horizon and knowledge and experience should also be considered. The methodology of third party risk profiling tools is not endorsed by 7IM and individual fund risk profiling scores may not correspond precisely to the risk indicators in the 7IM fund literature.
