The information provided does not constitute ‘investment research’ or a ‘research report’ and should not be relied on as such. Investment decisions should not be based upon the information provided.

NOT A BENCHMARK
The information provided does not constitute a financial benchmark and should not be used as a submission or contribution of input data for the purposes of determining a financial benchmark.
ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND GOVERNANCE (‘ESG’) RELATED DATA
There is currently no globally accepted framework or definition (legal, regulatory or otherwise) of, nor market consensus as to what constitutes, an ‘ESG’, ‘green’, ‘sustainable’, ‘climate-friendly’ or an equivalent company, investment, strategy or consideration or what precise attributes are required to be eligible to be categorised by such terms. This means there are different ways to evaluate a company or an investment and so different values may be placed on certain ESG credentials as well as adverse ESG-related impacts of companies and ESG controversies. The evolving nature of ESG considerations, models and methodologies means it can be challenging to definitively and universally classify a company or investment under an ESG label and there may be areas where such companies and investments could improve or where adverse ESG-related impacts or ESG controversies exist. The evolving nature of sustainable finance related regulations and the development of jurisdiction-specific regulatory criteria also means that there is likely to be a degree of divergence as to the interpretation of such terms in the market. We expect industry guidance, market practice, and regulations in this field to continue to evolve. Any references to ‘sustainable’, ‘sustainability’, ‘green’, ‘social’, ‘ESG’, ‘ESG considerations’, ‘ESG factors’, ‘ESG issues’ or other similar or related terms in this document are as used in our public disclosures and not to any jurisdiction-specific regulatory definition or other interpretation of these terms unless specified otherwise.
