Reason for the name change

The Fund will be renamed from Guinness Alternative Energy Fund to "Guinness Sustainable Energy Fund". The managers believe that the new name more fairly reflects the fact that renewable energy sources (such as wind, solar, geothermal and hydro) are no longer considered to be ‘alternative’ energy sources. In fact, they are now very much a part of global energy mix and, given that they are renewable in nature, the asset managers believe that it is fair to refer to them as being ‘sustainable’. 


The fund’s investment objectives will not change and the fund will continue to be managed in line with the Guinness Asset Management investment philosophy and portfolio construction approach. 


The existing ISIN's (shown below with the new fund name) will remain the same. 


Guinness Sustainable Energy EUR - (IE00BGHQF417) 


Guinness Sustainable Energy GBP - (IE00B3CCJ633) 


Guinness Sustainable Energy USD - (IE00B2PGVK34)
