Investment product details

 The Triodos Sustainable Pioneer Fund identifies companies that are active in the field of sustainability using 7 themes:

  • Sustainable food and agriculture

Share Class

The Sustainable Pioneer Fund share classes being offered to UK investors are sterling share classes in GBP. The KR-cap or capitalisation (income generated is reinvested into the fund) and KR-dis or distribution (income generated is transferred to your account.)

Financial return

Performance to Date, £

In October 2018 the Fund's average annual return over the previous 5 years was 13.1% on the net asset value (this includes reinvestment of dividends, excluding initial purchase costs).

A dividend of 3p per share was paid in 2017.


Dividends policy

The fund intends to pay a dividend at least once a year. When you buy into the fund, you can opt to receive a dividend on your shares (KR-dis) or choose to automatically reinvest the dividends in the fund (KR-cap).

Historic dividends

If sufficient net income is generated by the fund, these share classes pay an annual dividend to its shareholders.

How dividends are paid

Dividends are paid after approval at the annual general meeting which is held annually on the third Wednesday of April.

How secure is your money?

 The performance of your investment is dependent on the performance of the companies in which the fund invests, and the management charges levied by Triodos Bank. You receive a share of any profits paid out as dividends (depending on the share class), and your investment can go up in value if the business goes well. However, if the fund does not make profits you may not receive a dividend and your investment may go down in value.

This investment is not covered by any government compensation scheme.

Keeping track of your investment

You will be able to view your fund investment through Triodos's internet banking system.
