Companies or issuers that successfully pass our Values-based exclusionary screen are then subject to an ESG exclusionary screen.

Companies or issuers are scored (both positively and negatively) on a broad range of ESG factors, shown in the table below. These scores are totalled to arrive at a single score for each company or issuer.

Companies or issuers that receive a negative overall score fail this exclusionary screen and will not be considered for investment by the fund. A zero or positive score will allow a company or issuer to be considered for investment by the Fund.

  • Environmental risk, policy and performance

Indicative Nav (iNav) Per Unit

# An indicative NAV per Unit (iNAV) for GIVE is published above and updated throughout the ASX Trading Day. The iNAV will be based on the latest mid price of each security, and will take into account proxies (including futures) where a live price is unavailable (for example, if the relevant market is closed). The iNAV reflects the real time movements in stock markets and currencies during the ASX Trading Day and, for securities not trading during the ASX Trading Day, listed proxy instruments selected on the basis of correlations with the underlying investments. The proxies and their correlations with underlying instruments are reviewed regularly and updated as required.

The iNAV represents the best estimate by the Responsible Entity or its appointed agent, IHS Markit of the value per unit in GIVE throughout the trading day. No assurance can be given that the iNAV will be published continuously or that it will be up to date or free from error. To the extent permitted by law, neither the Responsible Entity nor its appointed agent shall be liable to any person who relies on the iNAV.
