Investment Objective The investment seeks to seek income and conservation of principal; as a secondary investment objective, the Balanced Fund seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund follows a sustainable investing approach, combining rigorous financial analysis with equally rigorous environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis in order to identify investments. It normally expects to invest approximately 60-75% of its assets in equity securities and approximately 25-40% of its assets in debt securities, though this allocation may vary somewhat depending on market conditions.
