Useful definitions

Explanations of some of the words used in the fund information.

CashSome funds keep part of your money in cash to add flexibility and aid stability. This can include investments in banks and building societies. A proportion of the fund will be held in these liquid investments as investments are bought and sold.
EquitiesThe fund invests in equities by buying units in the AXA World Funds Global Factors Sustainable Equity Fund. This fund invests in equities in global developed markets, including US, Europe and Asia with an objective of long-term capital appreciation.
Fixed Interest – Corporate Bonds and GiltsFixed Income Bonds – Fixed income bonds are fixed term loans issued by companies and governments looking to raise money. The bond issuer will pay investors either a fixed rate of interest or a variable rate of interest linked to an inflation indicator, such as retail price index (RPI). As fixed income bonds are traded on the stock market, their value may rise and fall in a similar way to the price of equities. The fund invests in both UK Gilts and Convertible Bonds. A UK Gilt is a fixed income investment issued by the UK Government. A Convertible Bond is a type of fixed income investment issued by a company, with regular interest payments, but with the potential to be converted into a predetermined number of equity shares at specific times during the life of the bond.
Fund sizeThe total value of all investments held in the fund.
