DSI Fund Description

The iShares MSCI KLD 400 Social ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of 400 companies deemed to have positive environmental, social and governance characteristics by MSCI.

DSI Factset Analytics Insight

DSI is a viable choice for those wanting a socially conscious ETF while maintaining reasonably marketlike exposure. Limiting its holdings to firms deemed to be socially responsible, from an environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standpoint. In practice, this means explicitly excluding firms who are significantly involved with weapons manufacturing, "vice" products, nuclear energy and genetic modification. Those firms that make the cut are then ranked by their performance according to those ESG criteria. While the fund excludes many familiar names, like Apple, Exxon Mobil, and AT&T, it avoids making huge sector bets. It overweights technology, and underweights financials and industrials, but this doesn't substantially change its risk profile. While not a liquidity standout, DSI is reasonably Tradable, with consistent volume and significant spreads. DSI is reasonably priced for its specialist exposure, and tracking is tight.
