Overall, the goal of each Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) within the ESG portfolios is designed to meet the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria. The ETFs included may not meet all three criteria and are rated by a third party, Morgan Stanley Corporate International (MSCI).

MSCI ESG ratings are a comprehensive measure of a company's long-term commitment to socially responsible investments (SRI) and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment standards. In particular, the MSCI ESG ratings focus on a company's exposure to financially relevant ESG risks.

Depending on your portfolio, you’re invested in a mix of companies, markets, and bonds. Please click here to see a list of prospectuses of the ETFs which are included in our ESG portfolios. 

Please note, your investments may not include some of these ETFs. To see which ETFs your portfolio includes, please visit (scroll down to "Portfolio Breakdown") or the portfolio screen in-app.
