The investment objective of the Allianz Thematica Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth through investment in global equity markets with a focus on Thematic Investing, aiming to outperform (net of fees) the Target Benchmark, the MSCI All Country World Index Total Return (Net) GBP over a rolling 5 year period.
The ACD will utilise a Thematic Investing approach to achieve its investment objective. The investible themes will typically be derived from long-term structural shifts; these megatrends could for example include urbanisation, technological innovation, resource scarcity and demographic & social change. Within these themes the ACD targets investment in companies that the ACD believes have a competitive advantage/product/solution in their respective markets. Information on current themes can be found on fact sheets which are published by the ACD on a monthly basis. The Fund will invest at least 70% in equities and securities equivalent to equities (e.g. American Depositary Receipts, Global Depositary Receipts) worldwide. In addition, up to 15% of the Fund's assets may be invested in index certificates and other certificates on equities, adequately diversified equity baskets, participation certificates and warrants.
