New Mackenzie ETF and mutual fund increase investor access to ESG investment solutions


In advance of Earth Day, Mackenzie Investments in Canada has announced the launch of the Mackenzie Corporate Knights Global 100 Index ETF (“the ETF”) and Mackenzie Corporate Knights Global 100 Index Fund (“the Fund”). The firm writes that these new investment solutions allow investors to access opportunities within the Corporate Knights’ top 100 global sustainable companies.

The ETF and Fund seek to replicate the performance of the Corporate Knights Global 100 Index, which consists of a diverse selection of global companies with strong management, enduring financial strength and exceptional performance in 25 measures of sustainability developed and maintained by Corporate Knights. To achieve this, the ETF intends to hold the constituent securities of the Index in equal weighting, rebalanced annually, while the Fund will invest in the ETF.

“More than ever Canadians want to consider the sustainability impact of their investments, and the Mackenzie Corporate Knights Global 100 Index ETF and Fund offer them efficient, simple solutions to access the growth taking place within companies that are leading the way when it comes to sustainability,” says Luke Gould, President and CEO, Mackenzie Investments. “We’re proud to be working alongside Corporate Knights, a leading sustainable economy research firm, to offer these all-in-one, diversified solutions that align with Canadians’ values.”

Securities held by the ETF and included in the CKG 100 are publicly traded companies with over USDD1 billion in annual revenue that operate in a sustainable fashion, scoring highly in sustainability categories that include energy efficiency, waste, emissions, water use, pay equity, diversity, sustainable suppliers and more.

“The Mackenzie Global 100 ETF is a natural progression of our flagship index, which has been identifying industry leaders at the forefront of the sustainability transition since 2005,” says Toby Heaps, CEO and co-founder of Corporate Knights. “We’re excited to work alongside Mackenzie in their effort to deliver investment solutions that allow Canadians to move the needle by accessing the world’s top sustainable companies.”

“Mackenzie Investments and Corporate Knights share the belief that responsibly run businesses can create value for investors,” says Gould. “With the Mackenzie Corporate Knights Global 100 Index ETF and Fund, Canadian investors can feel good about investing in growth-oriented companies that are committed to sustainable practices.”
