STNCStance Equity ESG Large Cap Core ETF
STNC Fund Description
STNC is an actively-managed, non-transparent ETF that holds a concentrated portfolio of US large-cap firms screened for ESG criteria.
STNC Factset Analytics Insight
STNC combines ESG investing with machine learning, risk optimization and a non-transparent active approach. The fund applies a multi-step ESG methodology to its large-cap US equity universe—first, screening securities for ESG criteria, and then ranking remaining securities against industry peers on sustainability-related key performance indicators. The fund adviser uses a machine learning model to identify firms that are most likely to outperform over the next quarter. Then the portfolio is optimized to minimize risk and maximize diversification. STNC is composed of at least 25 holdings, which are rebalanced quarterly. The fund only discloses its full holdings quarterly, with a 60-day lag. A ‘tracking basket’ is published daily on its website, in place of the actual portfolio. While STNC may disclose its actual holdings in the ‘tracking basket’, the portfolio weights are different. Investors should note that a non-transparent structure could result in wider spreads.
