The Sustainable Pioneer Fund share classes being offered on this website to UK investors are the KR-cap and KR-dis Sterling share classes in GBP. As these share classes have only been available since April 2013, performance data is limited. For a longer term view, we also show the performance information for the Euro share classes of the same fund (which are not available to retail investors in the UK). Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

Triodos Sustainable Pioneer Fund compares its return with a composite index as a benchmark for (non-sustainable) worldwide diversified equity funds. This index comprises four sub-indices that are related to the four themes of the fund. The index for the Clean Planet theme is the FTSE Environmental Opportunities All-Share Total Return, Euro (30%). The index for Climate Protection is the WilderHill New Energy Global Innovation Net Total Return, Euro (30%). The index for Healthy People is the MSCI Daily Net Total Return World Health Care Equipment & Services Euro (30%). The index for CSR Pioneers is the MSCI Daily Net Total Return Small Cap World Euro (10%). The investment policy that is pursued by the fund is not aimed at replicating or outperforming the benchmark in the short term. The fund may deviate from the benchmark because the fund only invests in companies that meet our strict sustainability criteria.
In the return tables and graphs of the annual and semi-annual reports the return of the sub-fund is compared with that of the benchmark and the reference index of the sub-fund. You can find the reports in the Download tab.

All returns stated in the table above are for the sterling share classes. As the sterling share classes do not have results for 5 calendar years the table below shows the returns for the euro share classes to give a longer term view of performance. The returns were calculated based on net asset value, including reinvestment of dividends where applicable. The value of Triodos Sustainable Equity Fund is determined in part by the developments on the financial markets or other markets. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

Dividend Triodos Sustainable Pioneer Fund
KR-cap and R-cap: these share classes do not pay dividends. All profits remain in the fund.
KR-dis and R-dis: if sufficient net income is generated by the fund, these share classes pay an annual dividend to its shareholders. The dividend payment is set by the annual general meeting of shareholders. Please note: The Pioneer Fund did not generate a positive net income in 2014 so wasn’t able to pay out a dividend.
Any investment decision should only be made on the basis of the Prospectus or the Key Investor Information Document(s) and not on any information on this page of this website. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to the future.
When investing in these funds currency risk arises because the investments made by the funds are denominated in US dollars, euros and other foreign currencies. In principle the fund does not hedge the currency risk of these investments. As the UK share classes are offered in sterling, when comparing returns for these share classes to those generated for the euro share classes offered to European investors, returns will be affected by currency fluctuations between sterling and the euro.
