The investment funds

Ethos offers a range of eight investment funds that incorporate very high sustainability standards: five equity funds, two bond funds and one balanced fund.

Ethos carries out an extra-financial analysis of companies and selects the best stocks in each sector on the basis of ESG ratings and an in-house carbon rating, which takes into account companies' greenhouse gas emissions (see "Sustainability analyses"). The financial management of the funds is then delegated to banking partners, who can only invest in a restricted investment universe made up of companies with the best sustainability profile.

The funds offered by Ethos also apply the following principles: sensitive sectors and companies exposed to major ESG controversies are excluded, voting rights are systematically exercised in accordance with Ethos' guidelines and a regular and constructive dialogue is conducted with the companies included in the funds in order to raise their awareness of good governance practices and the requirements of sustainable development.

In particular, there is no obligation on the part of Ethos to update or to remove contents on the website. All information is provided on an as is basis without any representations or guarantees. Ethos expressly reserves the right to change or supplement parts of or the entire website without prior notice, as well as to supplement it or delete items therein.

Past performance is not an indicator of current or future performance. Performance data does not take commissions and costs charged when financial instruments are issued and redeemed, as well as any custodian fees or withholding tax that could potentially reduce the value, into account. The return may go down as well as up due to changes in rates of exchange between currencies. The value of invested monies can increase or decrease and there is no guarantee that all or part of your invested capital can be redeemed. Moreover, investments denominated in foreign currencies are directly and indirectly subject to exchange-rate fluctuations. Distributions made in connection with funds and other investment instruments may also vary. Investors thus face the risk of not recouping their original investment in full. Even a total loss of investment cannot be ruled out. Please carefully analyse the risks inherent in an investment instrument, in particular the risk considerations contained in the current sales prospectus of the respective fund. Investors should also be aware, that the liquidity of fund shares and other investment instruments may be limited. Ethos can therefore provide no guarantee for the performance of financial instruments, products or services and investors must be prepared and be in a position to bear the risk of a total loss of their investment.
