Summary of changes - funds featured in our guided-architecture fund ranges

We have a number of funds across our guided fund ranges affected by the BNP fund name and objective changes. 


Change of fund name 


The fund ‘Parvest Energy Innovators’ will be renamed to ‘BNP Paribas Funds Energy Transition’. 


The fund ‘Parvest Equity Brazil’ will be renamed to ‘BNP Paribas Funds Brazil Equity’. 


Change of investment policy - Parvest Energy Innovators 


The investment policy will be updated according to the change of name of the fund from Energy Innovators to Energy Transition. 


The change will trigger an extension of the types of assets the fund invests in. The investment manager will consider extensively the energy connected sectors such as transitional energy, energy efficiency, sustainable transport, green building and infrastructure in addition to the renewable and alternative energy sources. 


We have written to our guided-architecture plan owners, or their appointed investment adviser, informing them of the changes. Servicing financial advisers will receive a sample of the letter for their information.
