ESGE Fund Description

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

ESGE Factset Analytics Insight

ESGE aims to increase exposure to emerging market companies with strong ESG traits, while maintaining a market-like portfolio. Companies in the broad MSCI Emerging Markets 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 market-like 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".ESGE is competitively priced for its exposure, and trades decently at the retail level.Prior to June 1, 2018 the fund tracked the MSCI Emerging Markets ESG Focus Index.
