Description of Environmental or Social Characteristics

The Environmental and Social characteristics of this fund include:

Minimum proportion of sustainable investments: The fund partly invests in sustainable investments, which means companies and issuers involved in activities that contribute to an environmental or social objective as outlined in UN SDGs and/or the EU Taxonomy, while not significantly harming any other environmental or social objectives.

S&P CSA ESG scoring: The fund invests in securities issued by entities whose ESG profiles have been scored by S&P Corporate Sustainability Assessment, to ensure that only securities issued by entities that meet the minimum required ESG score for the fund are eligible for inclusion.

Sector- and value-based exclusions:  Exclusion filters are applied to the portfolio construction process to restrict investments in companies and issuers with significant exposure to certain activities deemed to be detrimental to the environment or the society at large.

Paris-Aligned Fossil Fuel policy, which aims at limiting the carbon footprint resulting from the investment portfolio.

Principal Adverse Impact (“PAI”):  The negative impact of investments on sustainability factors is taken into consideration as an integrated part of the investment process

Methodologies, Data Sources and Processing

In order to calculate the percentage of sustainable investments, Octogone Europe uses the Bloomberg data of the EU Taxonomy Estimated Eligible Revenue Percent. This is the percentage of total revenue generated by fLAB Core stocks that is derived from a Taxonomy-eligible activity. Percentage eligible is calculated by the sum of each security’s total revenue percentage within an eligible BICS (Bloomberg Industry Classification) code. Octogone Europe keeps full discretion over the implementation of exclusions criteria, allowing itself to deviate from third-party information when it considers to be meaningful.
