The Fund aims to achieve long-term (5 years plus) capital growth.
The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in shares or other equity related securities of companies incorporated, domiciled or carrying out the main part of their economic activity in Japanwhich meet the Funds environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria as further detailed below.
The Fund follows the following ESG methodology:
1. Negative ESG screening: The Fund will exclude companies with a certain level of involvement in some sectors, including but not limited to weapons, coal, fossil
fuels, tobacco, adult entertainment and gambling, as well as companies not compliant with the UN global compact principles. The current exclusion criteria may be updated from time to time.
2. Positive ESG screening: The Fund will also increase overall exposure to those companies with sufficient practice and standards in terms of ESG and sustainable
development, based on the fund managers proprietary rating system.
In pursuing the Funds investment objective, the fund manager may consider it appropriate to also invest in other transferable securities (including non Japanese companies), money-market instruments, collective investment schemes (including funds managed by the Invesco group), deposits and cash. The Fund intends to invest 100% of its assets (excluding cash and cash equivalents) in investments meeting the ESG screening criteria described above.
Derivatives use: The Fund may use derivatives for efficient portfolio management purposes only, to reduce risk, reduce costs and/or generate additional capital or income. Such derivatives may not be fully aligned with the Funds ESG screening criteria
