The new UBS ETF physically replicates a single benchmark in the MSCI Global SRI Index family. This ETF offers investors the opportunity to invest in companies whose business concepts and products meet the strictest criteria in the areas of Environmental protection, Social responsibility and corporate Governance (ESG). To do this, MSCI Global Socially Responsible indices rely on a combination of negative and positive screening. They exclude companies whose activities are not in line with certain values such as manufacturers of products which have a highly detrimental impact on the environment and society. Conversely, SRI indices also aim to include those companies with the highest ESG ratings in their own sectors. This is to make sure that companies whose operations are particularly socially and environmentally beneficial are included in the index.

The new UBS ETF enhances the existing UBS ETF offerings to include the MSCI Global SRI Index family, which already enables investors to access sustainability-driven companies in other developed markets and emerging countries.
