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.


The retail sterling share classes of the Triodos Sustainable Pioneer fund: KR distribution and KR capitalisation are offered to UK residents aged 18 or over. As the UK share classes were launched in April 2013, performance data is limited.

With the distribution share class, income generated by the underlying holdings is distributed as cash. With the capitalisation share class income is retained within the fund and reinvested, increasing the price of the units. Income is variable and not guaranteed.
