ESML Fund Description

ESML tracks an index of small-cap companies with high environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factor scores as determined by MSCI.

ESML Factset Analytics Insight

ESML launched at a time of high investor sensitivity to producers and retailers of civilian firearms. The fund holds about 1,000 US small-cap companies with the highest ESG ratings. The index screens the US small-cap universe to exclude securities of companies involved in tobacco or controversial weapons, producers and retailers of civilian firearms, and companies involved in severe business controversies. For each industry, MSCI identifies key ESG issues (such as climate change, resource scarcity, and demographic shifts). Each company is then rated based on their exposure and strategic response to the key issues, in comparison to their industry peers. The index is then optimized to maximize exposure to companies with higher ESG ratings, while providing investment results comparable to those of the parent index. ESML’s expense ratio is reasonable.

ESML MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

iShares ESG MSCI U.S.A. Small-Cap ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 5.59 out of 10. The MSCI ESG Fund Rating measures the resiliency of portfolios to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors. ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
