BNY Mellon Investment Management: How to invest for impact in emerging market debt….without the greenwashing

Alleen voor professionele klanten. Dit is marketing communicatie.

In het verleden behaalde resultaten bieden geen garantie voor de toekomst.

Drie jaar geleden was de markt voor impactobligaties nog vrijwel nihil, maar nu is er een explosieve groei van $ 250 miljard binnen opkomende bedrijfsobligaties, met een jaarlijkse groei van 30%. Dit heeft een beleggingsuniversum gecreëerd dat impactgerichte beleggers veel meer mogelijkheden biedt om geld te verdienen en een blijvende sociale of milieu-impact te hebben.




Fund objective: To achieve positive environmental and/or social impacts while generating a total return comprised of income and capital growth by investing in emerging market debt and debt-related securities and related FDI.

Fund benchmark: The Fund will measure its performance against the J.P. Morgan EM Credit Green, Social and Sustainability Bond Diversified Index (USD Hedged) (the "Benchmark") for comparison purposes. However, the Investment Manager does not seek to align the Fund's performance with that of the Benchmark and the performance of the Fund and the Benchmark may differ significantly. The Fund is actively managed, which means the Investment Manager has discretion to invest outside the Benchmark subject to the investment objective and policy. The Fund has an unconstrained investment style, and as such it will not take the Benchmark into account when selecting the Fund's investments.

Key risks

The value of investments can fall. Investors may not get back the amount invested.

Objective/Performance Risk: There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objectives.

Emerging Markets Risk: Emerging Markets have additional risks due to less-developed market practices.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Investment Approach Risk: The Fund follows an ESG investment approach. This means factors other than financial performance are considered as part of the investment process. This carries the risk that the Fund or Strategy’s performance may be negatively impacted due to restrictions placed on its exposure to certain sectors or types of investments. The approach taken may not reflect the opinions of any particular investor. In addition, in following an ESG investment approach, the Fund/Strategy is dependent upon information and data from third parties (which may include providers for research reports, screenings, ratings and/or analysis such as index providers and consultants). Such information or data may be incomplete, inaccurate or inconsistent.

A complete description of risk factors is set out in the Prospectus in the section entitled "Risk Factors".

Please refer to the prospectus, and the KID before making any investment decisions. Documents are available in English and an official language of the jurisdictions in which the Fund is registered for public sale. Go to
