In line with this change, the fund’s short name, which appears on customer statements, will also change. See the table below for details:

Why are we changing the name?

Ecclesiastical Investment Management Limited, the underlying manager of the fund, has made the decision to change its name to EdenTree Investment management Limited. 

In line with this change, it’s also updating the names of all its funds, to replace Ecclesiastical with Eden Tree in the fund name. 

So, to avoid confusion for customers, we’re also changing our fund name to match the underlying fund name.

What current investors need to do?

Current investors don't need to do anything. There are no other changes to the fund. Its investment objective, manager, risk rating and charges are staying the same. 

The changes will be implemented gradually across our website and supporting literature, so you may notice both the old and new fund names in use for a time.
