Your capital is at risk and the value of your investment may go down as well as up, and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Income is variable and not guaranteed.

The Triodos Sustainable Pioneer fund is quoted in sterling, however when you purchase or sell, your sterling is converted from sterling into euros or back from euros into sterling. Your total return is therefore subject to the euro-sterling exchange rate. Dividends are converted from euros to sterling. You are also exposed to currency fluctuations in the regions in which the fund invests.

Investments are not covered by the Dutch deposit guarantee scheme, however they may be covered by the Investor compensation scheme. For more information on these schemes please read the deposit guarantee scheme and investor compensation scheme page.
