Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

Investing in a Sustainable Future

We often think about the future as long-term investors. More than ever, our focus is centered on ensuring the sustainability of the planet, our society and economic growth.

Each day, we help our clients invest across asset classes, sectors and regions through a variety of funds and strategies – many incorporate ESG factors, which we believe are increasingly central to a traditional evaluation of risk and return.

Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)

Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation seeks to provide investors with improved transparency around the way in which a fund manager describes the sustainability profile of its funds.

 

GS Asset Management has made the required pre-contractual disclosures for all in-scope funds and has published entity level disclosures.

An investor should only invest if he/she has the necessary financial resources to bear a complete loss of this investment.

Please note that the fund operates a swing pricing policy. Investors should be aware that from time to time this may result in the fund performing differently compared to the reference benchmark based solely on the effect of swing pricing rather than price developments of underlying instruments.
