The priority for most of us is ensuring we get a good return on our investments. But more and more people are realising the enormous influence they could have on the planet through their investments.
So we will keep listening to you, innovating, and building more investment funds with the potential to work for the good of the planet as well as you and your family’s financial future.
Right now, governments around the world are working to reboot their economies, with the need to care for our planet at the heart of their plans. It’s the positive industries, the sustainable, well-run companies in growth sectors like green energy, healthcare and waste reduction that can help your investments do more than just grow for the future. They can help shape the future for the people you love too.

The value of any fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
Our Planet+ funds offer you the opportunity to invest in businesses creating smart energy technology or reducing waste, as well as those working to fund the infrastructure that matters most, like hospitals, homes and offices. Your money can work towards achieving something better, all while targeting long-term returns.
While we offer a wide range funds, each with their own individual aims and objectives, our Planet+ funds aim to help our customers achieve something more. Within the range, there are both sustainable and impact funds to choose from.
Sustainable funds will often make investments driven by sustainability themed considerations like preventing pollution, and typically invest in companies or organisations with strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials. They might also have sustainability targets like reducing the carbon intensity of the portfolio.
Impact funds go one step further, and invest in companies that aim to address some of the world’s major social and environmental challenges.
