RSX Fund Description

RSX tracks an index of Russian companies selected and weighted by market cap.

RSX Factset Analytics Insight

RSX is the first Russia-focused ETF on the market. The fund, however, doesn't necessary look like the broad Russian equity space. It tends to be less top-heavy, as it limits its exposure to giant energy firms. This approach produces a more diverse basket that’s still highly concentrated. RSX also has a wider scope than other funds tracking Russia since it is eligible to hold Russian companies incorporated and/or listed overseas. Securities are selected and weighted by market cap, with individual weights capped at 8%. The index is reviewed on a quarterly basis.

RSX MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

VanEck Russia ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BB based on a score of 4.28 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).
