ESG

Fund Description
The Fund seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the STOXX US ESG Impact Index (Underlying Index). The STOXX ESG Impact Indices offer a broad market exposure that is tilted towards companies that score better with respect to a small set of environmental, social, and governance KPIs. Companies are selected and weighted by the following KPIs: CDP emission/energy reduction target, percentage of women on the board, percentage of independent directors, policy against child labor, golden parachute agreement. In addition coal miners, violators of United Nations Global Compact principles, and companies involved with controversial weapons are excluded. KPI standardization by industry and country capping reduce unwanted systematic active exposures.
