UBS launches socially responsible ETF


A new SRI ETF has been launched by UBS Global Asset Management on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt.

The UBS ETF – MSCI World Socially Responsible UCITS ETF (USD) A-acc is designed to enable investors to participate in the performance of companies around the world that meet strict sustainability criteria.

The reference index comprises the shares of large and medium-sized companies from 23 industrialised countries with particularly high environmental, social and governance (ESG) ratings, and excludes companies whose products have negative social or environmental effects. The weighting is limited to five per cent per index component.

Ongoing charges on the ETF are 0.38 per cent and the distribution policy is accumulating.
