Equity

BlackRock Solutions Funds ICAV - Coutts Actively Managed US 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 Fund seeks to exclude companies engaging in certain activities inconsistent with ESG criteria. Investors should therefore make a personal ethical assessment of the Fund’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.

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.

Within its Solutions platform, the Fund manager conducts assessments for third-party active managers as part of an approval process: this assessment considers whether managers have dedicated ESG resources or use internal ESG data, as well as the degree to which ESG is integrated into their investment processes. For equity managers, the Fund manager also considers the strength of investment stewardship capabilities. The Fund manager may consider the ESG assessment alongside other relevant information from the Investment Due Diligence when selecting new active managers. Certain Funds managed by the Fund manager may have fund-level exclusionary ESG policies. To implement these fund-level exclusionary ESG policies, the Fund manager incorporates screens which are passed on to third party managers (either via exclusion lists or sustainable indices) and incorporated into their sub-IMA guidelines and monitored by the Fund manager. Where appropriate and consistent with client objectives, other ESG objectives such as carbon emissions intensity reduction are also included in sub-IMA guidelines and monitored by the Fund manager. The Fund manager conducts regular portfolio risk reviews between the investment team and BlackRock's Risk and Quantitative Analysis group. These reviews include discussion of portfolio exposure to material environmental, social and governance risks, where appropriate.
