Instrument Profile

Key Fund Facts

  • What does it invest in? Invests in shares of UK companies within the Index, which is alternatively weighted to give greater weight to companies that score well against four selected gender diversity metrics: the percentage of women in a company at management level, at executive level, on the board and across the workforce. The fund will invest more in companies that score well against these criteria, and less in companies that do not.
  • How does it invest? Passively managed, to replicate the performance of the Index. As part of the Future World* range, the fund also incorporates our Climate Impact Pledge, a targeted engagement process, and may exclude companies if engagement proves unsuccessful.
