EQLT Fund Description

The Workplace Equality Portfolio tracks an index of global stocks selected by firms' support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees in the workplace. Stocks are equally weighted.

EQLT Factset Analytics Insight

EQLT's principles-based take on equities aims for the moral high ground but carries notable costs and risks. The fund selects firms that support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees—requirements include a published non-discrimination policy, full benefits for same-sex spouses and domestic partners, and transgender health coverage. Note that the fund makes no concessions to market-neutral exposure. From a global equity universe, the fund's index picks a relative handful of firms—about 200—deemed LGBT friendly, but in practice, that means almost exclusively US firms. EQLT's small basket, equal weighting, and sector tilts significantly increase overall risk.EQLT’s high price tag is several times more expensive than plain-vanilla offerings. Weak investor interest has translated to a thin trading market, further raising all-in costs. The risk of fund closure is significant. That said, the fund has no direct competitors; investors who support EQLT’s values should give it a hard look and trade with care.
