Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)

For the time being and taking due account of the nature and scale of its activities and range of financial products it makes available, Smedvig Investment Management AS, in accordance with Article 4(1)(b) of the SFDR, has elected the time being not to consider (in the manner specially contemplated by Article 4(1)(a) of the SFDR) the principal adverse impacts of investment decisions of Smedvig Funds plc. on Sustainability Factors. Smedvig Investment Management AS considers this a pragmatic and economical approach to compliance with its obligations under the SFDR.

The investments of each Sub-Fund of Smedvig Funds plc. do not take account of Sustainability Factors or Sustainability Risk. Investors should note that applying Sustainability Factors or Sustainability Risks to the investment process may exclude securities of certain issuers for non-financial reasons and, therefore, may forgo some market opportunities available to other funds that do not use Sustainability factors or do not consider Sustainability Risks. Information on Sustainability Factors or Sustainability Risks from third-party data providers may be incomplete, inaccurate or unavailable, which may adversely impact a fund placing reliance or such data for the purposes of assessing the appropriate inclusion or exclusion of an investment based on Sustainability Factors or Sustainability Risks.
