INVESTMENT CASE

Our planet is under threat like never before. Temperatures are rising, rainfall patterns are shifting and sea ice cover is retreating. Oceans are acidifying, soils are degrading, aquifers are drying up and droughts and floods are now common – while exploitation and degradation of the earth’s remaining natural resources, habitats and biodiversity continues unabated. In The Vocation of Man, Johann Gottlieb Fichte wrote “you could not remove a single grain of sand from its place without thereby… changing something through all parts of the immeasurable whole”. He was talking about the butterfly effect – the sensitive dependence that small change can have broad, non-linear implications on a complex system. Our planet is a complex system, and our persistent assault on both its health and vitality has now started to alter its very fundamentals. The evidence is clear. Microplastics have been found in Antarctic ice for the first time. Canada’s last intact ice shelf has collapsed. Australia has seen some of the worst bushfires in history and locusts have swarmed Asia and the Middle East threatening food security and the livelihoods of millions of people. We have lost our balance with nature. And so – how can we restore it? How can we create a future in which both people and nature can thrive? We must make nature our ally, and look to restore the rich and biodiverse world we inherited. Our first-of-its-kind investment strategy and ETF – Europe’s first environmental impact ETF – provides investors with exposure to the 100 most innovative and impactful companies that are tackling the world’s most pressing climatic and environmental challenges. Companies across clean water, EVs, renewables and hydrogen, energy efficiency, waste and the circular economy and nature-based solutions that hold the promise of a greener future.

FUND SUMMARY

The Rize Environmental Impact 100 UCITS ETF (LIFE) seeks to invest in the 100 most innovative and impactful companies that potentially stand to benefit from developing and applying solutions that address the world’s most pressing climatic and environmental challenges. This includes leaders and innovators across clean water, EVs, renewables and hydrogen, energy efficiency, waste and the circular economy and nature-based solutions. LIFE has been designed to address the six environmental objectives set out in the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities: (1) Climate Change Mitigation; (2) Climate Change Adaptation; (3) The Sustainable Use and Protection of Water and Marine Resources; (4) The Transition to A Circular Economy; (5) Pollution Prevention and Control; and (6) The Protection and Restoration of Biodiversity and Ecosystems. LIFE seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Foxberry SMS Environmental Impact 100 Index.

RISKS

  • All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.
  • LIFE is vulnerable to cyclical declines in the environmental sector.
  • Individual companies are subject to intense competition that may negatively impact their revenues and market values and therefore LIFE's value.
  • LIFE also invests in small publicly-traded companies which may be less mature and therefore more vulnerable to adverse business or economic events and greater and more unpredictable price changes than larger companies, the technology sector as a whole or the stock market as a whole.
  • LIFE invests in global equity securities. As such, there is a risk of loss arising from exchange rate fluctuations or exchange control regulations.
  • Other: (1) Third-party service providers (such as the ICAV’s depositary) may go bankrupt and fail to pay money due to LIFE or return property belonging to LIFE. (2) If the Index provider stops calculating the Index or if LIFE's license to replicate the Index is terminated, LIFE may have to be closed. (3) It may not always be possible to buy and sell LIFE Shares on a stock exchange or at prices closely reflecting the Net Asset Value. (4) There is no capital guarantee or protection on the value of LIFE and investors can lose all the capital invested in LIFE. (5) Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of the ICAV’s Prospectus and the Fund Supplement.
