BlackRock Solutions Funds ICAV - Coutts UK ESG Insights Equity Fund

Overview

Important Information: Capital at Risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events. The benchmark index only excludes companies engaging in certain activities inconsistent with ESG criteria if such activities exceed the thresholds determined by the index provider. Investors should therefore make a personal ethical assessment of the benchmark index’s ESG screening prior to investing in the Fund. Such ESG screening may adversely affect the value of the Fund’s investments compared to a fund without such screening.

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

The figures shown relate to past performance. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Markets could develop very differently in the future. It can help you to assess how the fund has been managed in the past

ESG Integration

ESG Integration

ESG integration is the practice of incorporating financially material environmental, social and governance (ESG) data or information into the investment decision process with the objective of enhancing risk-adjusted returns of our clients’ portfolios. Unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation or included within the Fund's investment objective, inclusion of this statement does not imply that the Fund has an ESG-aligned investment objective or strategy, but rather describes how ESG data or information is considered as part of the overall investment process.

The Fund manager includes environmental, social and/or governance considerations in the research, selection, monitoring and reporting phases of the investment process. This can include third-party data and material considerations, as defined by the investment team, of environmental, social or governance criteria. Where appropriate, the Fund manager undertakes rigorous research in the construction of internal research signals, which helps measure a company's exposure to, and management of, transition risks and opportunities associated with the low-carbon economy, internal and external stakeholder metrics, and board quality and composition. These signals consider key performance indicators, as determined by the investment team, within the relevant ESG themes. Once these indicators have met the criteria necessary to be incorporated into the signal, this information may be incorporated into investment decisions on an ongoing basis. The Fund manager may additionally examine environmental exposures such as carbon emissions intensity and clean technology revenue during the reporting phase. These are sourced from Aladdin or directly from third-party data providers.
