We wish to inform unitholders of SEB Fund 3 – SEB Ethical Global Index Fund (LU0389150375, LU0047324644, LU1058763860) that the board of directors of the Management Company, SEB Asset Management S.A., has decided to change the index from Socially Responsible Index on MSCI All Country World Index, to MSCI ACWI Socially Responsible Index, based on SEB SRI Policy B.

The new index is derived from the MSCI All Country World Index. The socially responsible screening will be performed by MSCI ESG Research. Socially responsible screening excludes from the index, for example, companies involved in the manufacture of controversial weapons or companies in breach of the UN Global Compact Principles. Specific criteria are followed regarding investing in companies whose business activities involves weapons, tobacco, alcohol, commercial gambling and pornography. See www.sebgroup.lu for the fund’s sustainability profile.
