Global Impact Value Equity Strategy (GIVES)
The Lyrical Asset Management Global Impact Value Equity Strategy (GIVES) is a concentrated portfolio selected from the universe of the largest 2,500 companies in the world’s developed markets.
Strategy Description & Investment Objective
Like Lyrical’s other strategies, GIVES is grounded in process. The portfolio normally includes at least 20 best ideas, diversified by sector, industry, and country. This strategy includes only companies that actively seek to improve the world as indicated by their alignment with at least one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By way of illustration, the GIVES’ portfolio companies’ weighted average carbon intensity is 76% less than its benchmark. To be clear, the aim is to do well while doing good.
At least 50% of a company’s revenue must be directly tied to at least one of the SDGs.
Negative externalities from a company’s operations cannot outweigh its positive impact.
The GIVES Portfolio’s weighted average carbon intensity (Scope 1&2) is 76% less than its benchmark.

These results are unaudited and subject to revision, are for a composite of all accounts, and show all periods beginning with the first full month in which the advisor managed its first account in this strategy. Net returns include a 1.25% per annum base fee from inception through March 2020 and a 0.85% per annum base fee from April 2020 onward. An individual client’s performance will vary depending on their specific fee schedule. The net returns also include the deduction of relevant expenses, including trading costs, but do not reflect the deduction of custodial fees.
In the interest of our clients, reporting as to positions in transition are lagged at our discretion.

The S&P 500® Value draws constituents from the S&P 500®. S&P measures value using three factors: the ratio of book value, earnings, and sales to price. S&P style indices divide the complete market capitalization of each parent index into growth and value segments. Effective 5/21/2020, the benchmark was changed retroactively to the S&P 500® Value Index. The agreement with the licensor of the prior index concluded on that date. Any indices shown are provided for illustrative purposes only, are unmanaged, reflect reinvestment of income and dividends and do not reflect the impact of advisory fees. Investors cannot invest directly in an index. Comparisons to indexes have limitations because indexes have volatility and other material characteristics that may differ from the composite.
