SAM deepens cooperation with Dow Jones Indexes


SAM, the investment boutique focused exclusively on sustainability investing, is to deepen its 11-year-old collaboration with Dow Jones Indexes by expanding its worldwide sustainability index offering.

Under the joint marketing agreement, Dow Jones Indexes will be responsible for calculation, marketing and distribution of the indices including the European indices, while SAM remains responsible for the component selections.

As a result, SAM’s collaboration with Stoxx has been terminated, although Stoxx will continue to calculate and market its own Sustainability Indexes, including the STOXX Europe Sustainability Index and the EURO STOXX Sustainability Index.

Rodrigo Amandi, managing director of SAM Indexes, says: “Over the past 11 years, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes have been successfully developed and expanded worldwide. Through what is now an exclusive global collaboration with Dow Jones Indexes, we are taking account of the growing significance of sustainability benchmarks by offering investors around the world a homogeneous index family. We extend our thanks to partner Stoxx for the positive cooperation to date and look forward, in partnership with Dow Jones Indexes, to continuing our pioneering work in the field of sustainability and shaping the segment’s future growth.”

SAM retains responsibility for component selection.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the oldest benchmarks for sustainability investing. Aggregate investment volumes in DJSI-based portfolios now total more than USD8bn.
