Investment objective

This bond fund aims to achieve a positive total return over 3 years whilst maintaining an annualized volatility of no more than 3%, whilst investing in securities of issuers that contribute towards the Paris Agreement's goal to hold the increase in the global average temperature to below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.


Key features

The fund invests worldwide mainly in shorter-term investment grade quality bonds, with at least 80% in sustainable investments whilst excluding certain economic activities that are deemed detrimental to society or the environment and are incompatible with the sustainable investment objective of the fund. The average maturity of the portfolio may not exceed 3.5 years. The fund can use derivative financial instruments for hedging purposes. The fund has not designated a reference benchmark for the purpose of attaining the sustainable investment objective.


Approach

The experienced and diverse investment team applies a proprietary ESG framework to invest at least 80% of the portfolio in securities of corporate issuers in sustainable investments that contribute to an environmental (climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation) objective or social (empowerment) objective, and to exclude issuers deriving a non-negligible part of their revenues from defined products and/or activities.

An actively managed genuinely sustainable Article 9 fund, long only, unlevered, easy to understand and designed to keep volatility low.

Vontobel Fund - TwentyFour Sustainable Short-Term Bond Income (SSTBI) applies both positive and negative ESG screening to the investment universe, a system designed to reward companies for sound ESG practices. SSTBI is an actively managed short term bond fund that aims to deliver steady returns in any market environment while keeping volatility to a minimum.
