Citi issues structured investment linked to iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF


Citi has issued a structured investment linked to the iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF, which is an exchange-traded fund that seeks to track the performance of the MSCI USA Extended ESG Focus Index.The MSCI USA Extended ESG Focus Index is composed of US companies that have positive environmental, social and governance characteristics, as determined by MSCI Inc. The Index attempts to exhibit risk and return characteristics similar to those of the MSCI USA Index.
