Swing Pricing System
Swing Pricing Description
Swing Pricing is a mechanism by which the net asset value is adjusted upwards (or downwards) if the change in liabilities is positive (or negative) in such a way as to reduce for existing investors the portfolio restructuring costs linked to subscription/ redemption movements in the fund. On valuation days where the difference between the amount of subscriptions and the amount of redemptions of a sub-fund (i.e. net transactions) exceeds a threshold set beforehand by the Board of Directors, the latter shall be entitled to:
- value the net asset value by adding to the assets (in the case of net subscriptions) or deducting from assets (at net redemptions) a fixed percentage of the fees corresponding to market practices and reflecting the fees and/or conditions of liquidity when buying or selling securities; - value the securities portfolio on the basis of bid or ask prices;
- assess the net asset value by setting a level of spreads representative of the relevant market;
- The dilution mechanism must not exceed 2% of the net asset value, except in exceptional circumstances, as in the event of a sharp decrease in liquidity, which would then be detailed for the sub-fund concerned in the annual (semi-) annual report of the SICAV.

Main Risks

Counterparty Risk: When the fund carry out over-the-counter transactions (i.e. involving instruments not listed on the markets), they are exposed to a risk of default by the counterparty to the transaction.

Credit risk: It constitutes the risk that an issuer or a counterparty default. This risk includes the risk of changes in credit spreads and default risk. The level of credit risk is usually evaluated by using “ratings” representing a comparative assessment of the credit quality (solvency level) of an issuer, issuer or portfolio. “High Yield” investments present the lowest rating levels and therefore a high credit risk.

ESG Investment Risk: ESG investment risk refers to the risks arising from the inclusion of ESG factors in the management process, such as the exclusion of activities or issuers and the inclusion of sustainability risks in the selection and/or allocation of issuers in the portfolio.

Sustainability Risk: The sustainability risk refers to any environmental, social or governance event or condition that could affect the performance and / or the reputation of issuers in the portfolio. It may be issuer specific, in line with their activities and practices, but may also be due to external factors.

SFDR Category: Article 8


The fund’s investment strategy aims to promote environmental or social characteristics, or a combination of these characteristics, provided that the entities in which the investments are made apply good governance practices. To achieve this objective, the management team makes discretionary investment choices based on an economic/financial analysis process and an internal analysis of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria, based in part on data provided by external service providers.

a. ESG selection criteria:

The internal analysis of ESG criteria consists in selecting the issuers:
• best positioned to meet the challenges of sustainable development;
• that comply with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact (i.e. human rights, labour law, the environment, anti-corruption), and which are therefore less exposed to the risks associated with these themes; and
• that are not engaged in controversial activities such as armament (securities of a company whose activity consists of manufacturing, the use or possession of anti-personnel mines, cluster bombs and/or depleted uranium weapons), tobacco, thermal coal;

b. Selection methodology:

The issuers favoured by the management company are subject to a dual analysis:
• Analysis of their activity to assess their alignment with the major challenges of sustainable development. For example, regarding the transition to a circular economy, the management company will consider a company producing recycled steel to be more sustainable than a company producing steel exclusively from iron ore; and
• Analysis of how the company manages players interacting with the company: its employees, its customers, its shareholders, its suppliers and the environment. Here too, the management company will favour companies that adopt the most sustainable practices given their sector. For example, with regard to relations with its clients, the management company will favour pharmaceutical companies with balanced pricing practices and commercial policies. Similarly, with regard to relations with their employees, the management company attaches great importance to the fight against discrimination and compliance with social standards.

c. A team of ESG analysts is responsible for assessing the selection criteria:

ESG analysis and selection are carried out by a dedicated team of ESG analysts within Candriam. This team is made up of specialists whose mission is to analyse the exposure of companies and governments to the risks and opportunities associated with sustainable development. Selection criteria are expected to evolve over time, based on advances in ESG research and changes in company practices.
