Environmental, social and governance, or ESG, exchange traded fund strategies are gaining traction in the investment community as more clients seek investments that align with their values.
On the upcoming webcast this Tuesday, Jan. 16, The Evolution and Expansion of ESG Investing, Jordan Farris, Head of ETF Product Development for Nuveen, and Max Mintz, Financial Advisor at Common Interests, will delve into the growth of ESG investing, the opportunities it may provide your clients, and how to incorporate ESG focused products into your practice.
For instance, the NuShares ESG U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: NUBD) helps fixed-income investors pair their bond investment needs with environmental, social and governance principles.
The ESG U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF tries to reflect the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays MSCI US Aggregate ESG Select Index, which screens for certain environmental, social and governance, or ESG, criteria when selecting from securities taken out of the benchmark Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond Index, a broadly designed index that captures U.S. investment-grade, taxable fixed income securities.
