ESGD Fund Description

The iShares MSCI EAFE ESG Optimized ETF tracks an index of developed market international companies that have been selected and weighted for positive environmental, social, and governance characteristics.

ESGD Factset Analytics Insight

ESGD aims to increase exposure to developed market firms with strong ESG traits, while maintaining a marketlike portfolio. Companies in the broad MSCI EAFE Index are rated on risk factors related to environmental (e.g., carbon emissions, water use, toxic waste), social (e.g., labor management, health & safety, sourcing), and governance issues (e.g., corruption, fraud, anti-competitive practices). Portfolio optimization software is used to maximize the fund's stake in highly rated companies while staying close to marketlike exposure, performance, and risk. Additionally, the fund completely excludes tobacco companies, producers of certain weapons (such as landmines and bioweapons), and companies experiencing "severe business controversies".

ESGD is competitively priced for its exposure, and trades decently at the retail level.
