1. Index given for comparative and illustrative purposes only. The fund is not managed to the index, is actively managed and returns may deviate materially from the performance of the specified index.

2. The SRI (Summary Risk Indicator) is an overall indicator of the product risk level. The scale varies from 1 (least risky) to 7 (most risky). Historical data may not be a reliable indication for the future. The rating is not guaranteed to remain unchanged and the categorisation may shift over time. The lowest rating does not mean a risk-free investment. Do not run any unnecessary risk. Read the Key Information Document. The fund has a high risk indicator. The value of investments can go up as well as down.

3. The fund uses the swing principle calculation method which determines the net asset value of the fund. Swing pricing allows investment funds to pay the daily transaction costs arising from subscription and redemptions by incoming and outgoing investors. The aim of swing pricing is to reduce the dilution effect generated when, for example, major redemptions in a fund force its manager to sell the underlying assets of the fund. These sales of assets generate transaction costs and taxes, also significant, which impact the value of the fund and all its investors.

Characteristics and weightings are for illustrative purposes only, are not guaranteed and are subject to change over time, and without prior notice, taking into account any changes in markets.
