Do you want to identify your values?
Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) (or any investment with non-financial objectives) investing can be referred to in many different ways, such as sustainable investing, socially responsible investing, and impact investing. ESG fund practices can include, but are not limited to, strategies that select companies based on their stated commitment to one or more ESG factors (e.g., environmental, social and governance) - for example, companies with policies aimed at minimizing their negative impact on the environment or companies that focus on governance principles and transparency. Funds that elect to focus on companies’ ESG practices may have broad discretion in how they apply ESG factors to their investment or governance processes. An ESG fund portfolio might include securities selected in each of the three categories, or in just one or two of the categories. A fund’s portfolio might also include securities that don’t fit any of the ESG categories, particularly if it is a fund that considers other investment methodologies consistent with the fund’s investment objectives. ESG-related strategies may not result in favorable investment performance. There is no guarantee that the fund’s ESG-related strategy will be successful, and funds may forego favorable market opportunities in order to adhere to ESG-related strategies or mandates.
