The product aims to replicate, as closely as possible, as part of passive management, the performance of the MSCI ACWI ESG Leaders Index net return (the “Index”), regardless of whether its performance is positive or negative. The Management Company aims to achieve a tracking error level (ex-ante) between changes in the valuation of shares of the product and that of the Index of less than 1.5% (no guarantee is given in this regard by the Management Company).
The Index is an equity index calculated and published by the international index provider MSCI Inc. (“MSCI”). The shares forming the MSCI ACWI ESG Leaders Index are among the most significant values of the equity markets in developed and emerging countries. They represent, among the companies making up the MSCI ACWI Index, the securities of companies having, according to the index provider, the best ratings in environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters. The exposure to the Index will be achieved through physical replication with a direct investment in all components of the Index. This replication can lead to portfolio transaction costs having a considerable impact on the investment return. These costs are borne by the assets of the product. However, in order to handle the entries and exits, as well as the characteristics of the local equity markets (market access, liquidity, local tax), the Management Company will be able to combine physical replication with synthetic replication by using derivative instruments such as futures contracts and/or other UCIs, including Exchange Traded Funds. In the event of synthetic replication of the Index, counterparty risk will be higher.
This product intends to distribute a dividend annually.
You can request the redemption of your product every bank working day in Brussels, the redemption operations are carried out on a daily basis, subject to the limitations outlined in the prospectus and the articles of association.
The product is aimed at individuals or legal entities wishing to invest for the long term (we recommend an investment horizon of 5 years). The investor must have a good knowledge of the risks associated with financial markets and be prepared to accept capital losses due to fluctuations in the value of the assets in the portfolio.
These objectives as well as the investment policy are an exact copy of those indicated in the corresponding KID. The investment which is promoted concerns the acquisition of units or shares in a fund, and not in a given underlying asset.
Main risk factors defining the risk level
We have classified this product as 4 out of 7, which is a medium risk class. This indicator assesses potential losses in future returns at a medium level, and poor market conditions could affect the value of the shares in which the product invests and therefore the value of the product itself. This level of risk reflects the fact that the product invests in shares which are more risky than bonds or money market instruments.
As this product does not include capital protection, particularly against market fluctuations, you could lose all or part of your investment, but not more than the amount of your investment.
Other risks to be considered
Under unusual market conditions, other risks could arise:
- Sustainability risk: environmental, social or governance event or condition that could cause an important negative impact on the value of an investment
- Counterparty risk: the risk that the credit institution may not honour its commitments with regard these instruments. This risk is present when using financial derivative instruments to ensure the synthetic replication of the Index or to hedge the currency risk
- Currency exchange risk: the product invests in securities denominated in currencies other than that of the product, the risk that the value of an investment may be influenced by exchange rate fluctuations is real.
