RBC Vision Funds investment principles

The RBC Vision Funds Investment Principles set out the screening criteria used to assess theenvironmental, social and governance (ESG) practices of issuers. Issuers that do not meet the screening criteria may be placed on an exclusion list, which is a list of companies whose securities cannot be held in RBC Vision Funds.2

2 An RBC Vision Fund may from time to time depart from its exclusion list(s) when RBC GAM has determined that it would be in the best interest of the fund to do so, such as when RBC GAM has identified inaccuracies in the data, or incomplete data due to more recent developments or events, used to produce the exclusion lists.
