            The security of our food system is one of the world’s most pressing challenges. With dwindling natural resources, the challenge of providing healthy, affordable and nutritious food to a growing global population – all while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental harm – is intensifying. The food industry has started to respond, expanding plant-based protein options and increasing sustainability of farming, and improving supply-chains and packaging. Consumers too, have become more concerned about food safety and the provenance of what they eat. The global food system now requires urgent transformation if we want to avoid the sorts of planetary damage that awaits if we do nothing – loss of biodiversity, freshwater depletion, pollution of our rivers and oceans and enduring damage to our soils. The good news is that system-wide and holistic change comes with new opportunities. Our pioneering investment strategy and ETF – Europe’s first sustainable food ETF – provides investors with exposure to companies that are innovating across the food value chain to build a more sustainable, secure and fair food system for our planet.

            All Other Documents


            The Fund may be subject to the risks associated with companies operating in the food and agriculture technology sectors including rapidly changing technologies and obsolescence of existing products, fierce international competition, the loss of patent, copyright and trademark protections and evolving industry standards. Companies will also be subject to external risk factors impacting the broader food and agriculture markets related to changing and unpredictable weather conditions (including drought and flooding) and fluctuating commodity prices.

            The Fund 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 food, agricultural and technology sectors or the stock market as a whole.

            The Fund 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 the Fund or return property belonging to the Fund. (2) If the Index provider stops calculating the Index or if the Fund’s license to replicate the Index is terminated, the Fund may have to be closed. (3) It may not always be possible to buy and sell the Fund’s 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 the Fund and investors can lose all the capital invested in the Fund. (5) Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of the ICAV’s Prospectus and the Fund Supplement.
