USSG Fund Description

USSG tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US large- and midcap stocks, screened for environmental, social, and governance characteristics.

USSG Factset Analytics Insight

USSG holds a basket of companies that score highly for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors, with roughly marketlike sector exposure. The fund’s index uses MSCI’s ESG rating methodology to assign a score to all US large- and midcap stocks. The index automatically screens out companies involved in severe business controversies, certain controversial industries (alcohol/tobacco, gambling, controversial weapons, etc.), and those that simply score very poorly in MSCI’s ratings. Rather than holding only the highest rated stocks, USSG makes concessions toward marketlike representation. At rebalance, the fund selects about half the available market cap in each sector, emphasizing higher ESG ratings, larger firms, and current constituents. This makes USSG suitable as a core US equity holding, though the fund’s performance may still vary significantly from the broader market at times.USSG’s low fee and reasonable strategy make it an attractive option for socially minded investors. But one note of caution: USSG appears to be a “bespoke” product created for Finnish insurer Ilmarinen. The fund could close—or see liquidity dry up overnight—if the sponsoring company decides to pull its assets.
