If you are seeking an ESG enhancement for your core US equity exposure, our Invesco S&P 500 ESG UCITS ETF could be an option. This passive fund aims to deliver the performance of the S&P 500 ESG index, less a low 0.09% annual management fee. The index has been designed to integrate ESG criteria into one of the world’s most iconic and widely tracked benchmarks.
We align involvement exclusions with S&P 500 ESG index across the broader eligible universe (not just US) with regards to tobacco, controversial weapons, and low UN Global Compact scores.
We exclude S&P 500 companies that are not in the S&P 500 ESG index to ensure we are not buying stocks that are excluded from the index.
We exclude companies not covered by Sustainalytics ESG data to ensure comprehensive coverage.
We apply additional exclusions such as thermal coal and apply more stringent exclusions for controversial weapons and tobacco.
Integrate ESG risks and opportunities with the S&P 500 ESG Index
The methodology of the S&P 500 ESG Index is simple: Transparent exclusion criteria apply and the selection process ensures that the industry weightings largely correspond to the market-wide S&P 500 Index.Find out more
Investment strategies involve numerous risks. Investors should note that the price of your investment may go down as well as up. As a result you may not get back the amount of capital you invest.
The value of investments, and any income from them, will fluctuate. This may partly be the result of changes in exchange rates. Investors may not get back the full amount invested.
Use of derivatives for index tracking
The Fund’s ability to track the benchmark’s performance is reliant on the counterparties to continuously deliver the performance of the benchmark in line with the swap agreements and would also be affected by any spread between the pricing of the swaps and the pricing of the benchmark. The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Fund to financial loss.
This fund enters into transactions which expose it to the risk of bankruptcy, or other types of default, by the counterparties to those transactions.
The Fund might be concentrated in a specific region or sector or be exposed to a limited number of positions, which might result in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund than for a fund that is more diversified.
Synthetic ETF Risk
The fund might purchase securities that are not contained in the reference index and will enter into swap agreements to exchange the performance of those securities for the performance of the reference index.
Environmental, social and governance
The Fund intends to invest in securities of issuers that manage their ESG exposures better relative to their peers. This may affect the Fund’s exposure to certain issuers and cause the Fund to forgo certain investment opportunities. The Fund may perform differently to other funds, including underperforming other funds that do not seek to invest in securities of issuers based on their ESG ratings.
The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by a number of factors including the activities and results of the issuer and general and regional economic and market conditions. This may result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund.
