BGRN Fund Description

BGRN tracks a market-value-weighted index of investment-grade government and corporate bonds linked to environmentally beneficial projects, as identified by MSCI. The fund hedges currency exposure for USD-based investors.

BGRN Factset Analytics Insight

BGRN targets bonds that align with MSCI’s Green Bond Principles. Qualifying bonds must be issued to fund projects in one of six categories: alternative energy, energy efficiency, pollution prevention and control, sustainable water, green building, and climate adaption. Additionally, bond issuers must maintain processes for evaluating and selecting green projects, managing proceeds, and reporting environmental impact. Bonds do not need to be marketed as “green” or certified by any other organization. BGRN may still hold bonds that don’t meet all the criteria if they were issued before 2014 and have been widely accepted as “green”, as determined by the index committee.BGRN’s selection pool includes both government and corporate issuers from developed and emerging markets. Holdings may be of any term and are generally held to maturity. The fund excludes floating-rate, perpetual, inflation-linked, and convertible bonds, as well as tax-exempt bonds from municipal issuers. BGRN’s portfolio is weighted by market value.
