NUEM Fund Description

NUEM tracks an index of large- and midcap emerging-market stocks that score highly on environmental, social, and governance criteria. The index is optimized for marketlike risk and return characteristics.

NUEM Factset Analytics Insight

NUEM aims to invest in the most socially responsible companies while still providing reasonably market-like exposure to emerging-market stocks. The fund selects large- and midcap stocks from the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. From there, NUEM screens out companies involved in controversial businesses, such as alcohol, weapons, nuclear power, and gambling. Companies that exceed carbon emissions thresholds are also excluded. The remaining firms are scored on environmental, social, and governance factors, and the highest scoring firms within each sector (the top 50% by market cap) are selected for inclusion in the fund. NUEM’s portfolio is weighted according to an optimization algorithm that tries to minimize any risk and return distortions created by the fund’s ESG screen. NUEM is expensive compared to cheap vanilla funds, but its fee is reasonable for its specialized exposure.

NUEM MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Nuveen ESG Emerging Markets Equity ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of A based on a score of 6.22 out of 10.

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.
