MSCI ACWI ESG Universal 5% Issuer Cap 100% hdg to GBP NR

Management Fee

0.480%

 

The MSCI ACWI ESG Universal 5% Issuer Capped with Developed Markets 100% Hedged to GBP Index represents a close estimation of the performance that can be achieved by hedging the currency exposures of its parent index, the MSCI ACWI Index, to the JPY, the “home” currency for the hedged index.

The index’s exposure to developed market country constituents is 100% hedged to the GBP by selling each foreign currency forward at the one-month Forward rate. The parent index is composed of large and mid-cap stocks across 23 Developed Markets (DM) countries and 24 Emerging Markets (EM) countries*.

The index is designed to reflect the performance of an investment strategy that, by tilting away from free-float market cap weights, seeks to gain exposure to those companies demonstrating both a robust ESG profile as well as a positive trend in improving that profile, using minimal exclusions from the MSCI ACWI index.
