Invesco lists today two new Equity ETFs on the London Stock Exchange
Below is the Tables with the relevant data:
|Product Name||Invesco FTSE All Share ESG Climate UCITS ETF Dist|
|Issuer||Invesco Markets II plc|
|Underlying||FTSE All Share ex Investment Trusts ESG Climate Select Index|
The Invesco FTSE All Share ESG Climate UCITS ETF Dist aims to provide the net total return performance of the FTSE All Share ex Investment Trusts ESG Climate Select Index, less the impact of fees. The fund distributes dividends on a quarterly basis.
The Reference Index tracks the performance of large- and mid-capitalisation companies in the UK equity market and re-weights constituents’ free-float market capitalisation based upon certain environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) metrics. The aim of this methodology is to increase exposure to those companies demonstrating a robust ESG profile, those generating an increased percentage of their revenue from green projects, and those that exhibit lower levels of carbon emissions and fossil fuel reserves.
The Reference Index is constructed from the FTSE All-Share ex Investment Trusts Index and excludes securities in companies that have faced very severe controversies pertaining to ESG issues (including UN Global Compact violations) or are involved as defined by the Index Provider in any of the following business activities: Arctic oil and gas exploration, adult entertainment, controversial weapons, small arms, gambling, military contracting, nuclear power, oil sands, thermal coal, recreational cannabis and tobacco. The Index is rebalanced quarterly.
The fund aims to achieve its objective by buying and holding, as far as possible and practical, all the securities in the Reference Index in their respective weightings. The fund will aim to rebalance its holdings whenever the Reference Index is rebalanced.
|Product Name||Invesco MSCI Europe Ex UK ESG Universal Screened UCITS ETF Acc|
|Issuer||Invesco Markets II plc|
|Underlying||MSCI Europe ex UK ESG Universal Select Business Screens Index|
The Invesco MSCI Europe ex UK ESG Universal Screened UCITS ETF aims to provide the performance of the MSCI Europe ex UK ESG Universal Select Business Screens Index, after the impact of fees.
The Index tracks the performance of large and mid-capitalisation companies across developed markets in Europe excluding the UK, and aims to represent the performance of an investment strategy that, by adjusting the constituents’ free-float market capitalisation weights based upon certain environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) metrics, seeks to increase overall exposure to those companies demonstrating both a robust ESG profile as well as a positive trend in improving that profile.
The Index is constructed from the MSCI Europe ex UK Index by excluding securities that: 1) have not been assessed or rated by MSCI on the basis of their ESG credentials; 2) have faced very severe controversies pertaining to ESG issues over the last three years; or 3) have a MSCI ESG Rating of CCC; or 4) are involved in controversial weapons, conventional weapons, nuclear weapons, civilian firearms, oil sands, thermal coal, tobacco or recreational cannabis.
Each of the eligible component securities is then assigned a combined ESG score, which reflects MSCI’s assessment of both the security’s current ESG rating, as well as the trend in that rating, defined as the change in the security’s ESG rating over time. This combined ESG score is then applied to re-weight the eligible securities in the Index. The Index is rebalanced on a semi-annual basis.
