The Fund screens for primarily large cap companies that possess strong management capabilities, strategic advantages, financial health and fit the Fund's socially responsible investing criteria. In the Fund Manager's opinion, these companies have above-average earnings growth potential and favourable valuation levels with respect to these expectations.
The Fund invests in companies that, among other screening criteria, achieve excellence in global environmental impact management; have positive employment and labour practices; contribute to socio-economic development through community involvement initiatives; and maintain an admirable corporate governance policy.
