Please bear in mind that all investments involve risk and the value of, and any potential income from, your investment may fluctuate and are not guaranteed.
The Company’s portfolio has a bias towards small and medium capitalisation companies. It invests primarily in securities which are quoted, listed or traded on a recognised exchange. However, up to 5 per cent of the Company’s Total Assets (at the time of such investment) may be invested in unlisted securities.
Jupiter Asset Management Limited, as the Company’s Investment Adviser, selects each stock on its individual merits as an investment rather than replicating the relevant company’s weighting within the Company’s benchmark index. The Company’s investment portfolio is therefore unlikely to represent the constituents of its benchmark index, but instead is intended to offer a well diversified investment strategy focused on maximising returns from the prevailing economic background.
The Investment Adviser may enter into contracts for differences in order to gain both long and short exposure for the Company to indices, sectors, baskets of individual securities for both investment purposes and for hedging or efficient portfolio management purposes. The ability to maintain a portfolio of both long and short positions provides the flexibility to hedge against periods of falling markets, to reduce the risk of absolute loss at portfolio level and to reduce the volatility of portfolio returns. The portfolio manager may also invest in single stock, sector and equity index futures and options.
Risk is also mitigated by investing mainly in quoted companies on registered exchanges, ensuring full regulatory compliance for all underlying quoted investments. There are no specific stock and sector size limitations within the portfolio, but the individual portfolio manager is expected to provide sufficient stock, sector and geographic diversification to ensure an appropriate trade-off between risk and return within the portfolio. In order to ensure compliance with this objective there is a two tier monitoring system. First, the individual portfolio manager’s portfolio is assessed monthly by the Jupiter Asset Management Limited Performance Committee, which is headed by the Chief Executive of Jupiter Asset Management Limited. Secondly, the Board is provided with a detailed analysis of stock, sector and geographic exposures at the Trust’s regular Board meetings.
Any material change in the investment policy of the Company described above may only be made with the approval of Shareholders by an ordinary resolution.
In the years since the launch of Jupiter’s first green fund in 1988, environmental issues have become a major global concern. There is now broad acceptance that problems such as energy security, climate change, freshwater scarcity, local pollution and waste are simply not going to disappear without concerted action to tackle them on a global scale.
It is Jupiter’s Environment & Sustainability team’s view that environmental solutions businesses will have deep, long-term structural impact across three key areas – infrastructure, resource efficiency and demographics. We believe that these categories communicate the link between environmental and economic issues. They also reflect Jupiter’s belief that investment in environmental solutions businesses is an investment in long-term global structural growth.
- Infrastructure There has been a marked increase in global infrastructure spending in recent years as emerging market economies look to support rapid growth and mature economies seek to modernise. Patterns in both emerging and developed markets have trended towards infrastructure of lower environmental impact (i.e. less pollution, more alternative energy sources etc.) in recognition of its longer-term economic benefits. This is creating opportunities for businesses involved in renewable energy generation, smart electrical grids, clean and wastewater systems, engineering consultants, transport infrastructure and communication networks.
- Resource efficiency Increased global demand for natural resources has stimulated significant investment in resource efficiency (i.e. lower impact methods of using existing resources such as energy, water and land, as well as resource recycling). This is presenting opportunities for businesses involved in energy and water efficiency, wastewater recycling, air pollution technology, waste recycling (from residential to industrial materials) and sustainable agriculture and land management.
- Demographics Rising populations and changing demographic patterns around the world create unique challenges when it comes to environmental and economic sustainability. Ageing populations in the West are putting pressure on healthcare, for example, while a growing global population is affecting agriculture and food production. These challenges have created opportunities for businesses that are providing sustainable, low impact solutions in sustainable consumption, public transport, health, agriculture and education.
Jupiter continues to use a stock-focused investment approach. Taking a long-term company focussed approach to investment, every stock within the portfolio is there on its own fundamental merit. These are companies with strong management teams, sound balance sheets and defendable market positions that convert a high proportion of profit into cash. While the Company is global in scope, specific geographical exposures are a consequence of stock picking process rather than targeted asset allocation.
Equally, Jupiter’s investment universe remains the same. Jupiter focuses on companies which respond to environmental challenges by developing a product or service which provides environmental solutions. Environmental investment opportunities now exist over a wide cross-section of the global economy. This provides a deep investment universe that allows Jupiter to create diversified portfolios underpinned by a variety of economic drivers.

New horizons for ecological investing
Market and exchange rate movements can cause the value of an investment to fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than originally invested.
We recommend you discuss any investment decisions with a financial adviser, particularly if you are unsure whether an investment is suitable. Jupiter is unable to provide investment advice.
Investment trust companies are traded on the London stock exchange, therefore the ability to buy or sell shares will be dependent on their market price, which may be at a premium or discount to their net asset value.
Jupiter Green Investment Trust PLC
The Jupiter Green Investment Trust can borrow money and use it to invest, known as being ‘geared’. This may increase returns but can also result in sudden and large falls in the value of the shares. In the event it is necessary for the company to repay sums it has borrowed during market declines, this repayment could have a negative effect on future capital growth.
Before making an investment decision, please read the PRIIPS Key Information Document which is available from Jupiter on request and at www.jupiteram.com.
