Performance of Sauren Nachhaltig Wachstum A as at 22.09.2023
The Investor would like to buy shares for 1,000.-- € and due to a 5.00% front-end load the total payable amount rises to 1,050.-- €. The gross performance (BVI method) is based on the published redemption prices of the Fund of Funds, which includes all costs incurred at the fund level (e.g. management fee), the net performance also includes the front-end load. The front-end load is only payable at the day of investment and therefore reduces the performance in the first year. In the following years no front-end load is considered, as such the net performance is not displayed in the bar chart as it is equal to the gross performance. Additional costs may be incurred at the investor level (e.g. custody costs). If the front-end load were taken into account in the line chart the performance in the chart would be lower.
TDue to its composition / the techniques used for its management, the fund is exposed to increased volatility; this means that unit prices may be subject to considerable upward and downward fluctuations, even within short periods of time.
* The chart shows the performance of a Unit class launched in 2000. The Unit class is that of a fund that previously held another legal form. The Fund's performance before 14 October 2019 was delivered under conditions that are no longer valid. Changes were made to the Fund's fee structure on 16 December 2017 (before that date, the name of the Fund was “Sauren Select Global Growth Plus”). Furthermore, changes were made to the Fund's investment policy on 1 January 2018, and to the Fund's investment objectives on 14 October 2019.

Explanations of Sauren ESG-Scoring
Target fund selection takes into account the extent to which a target fund includes environmental aspects, social aspects or principles of sustainable corporate governance in its investment decisions (“ESG” = environment, social, governance). This means that target funds are subject to the Sauren ESG scoring process before any investment decision is made. The ESG scoring process is not designed to serve as a seal of quality. Rather, it is a measurement process with the sole objective of indicating the extent to which ESG aspects have been reflected/taken into account in the fund concerned. The fund takes the outcome of the process into account in its investment decisions and rules out investments in any target fund with an insufficient Sauren ESG score. You can find further information on Sauren’s ESG here.
