Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics provide investors with specific non-traditional metrics. Alongside other metrics and information, these enable investors to evaluate funds on certain environmental, social and governance characteristics. Sustainability Characteristics do not provide an indication of current or future performance nor do they represent the potential risk and reward profile of a fund. They are provided for transparency and for information purposes only. Sustainability Characteristics should not be considered solely or in isolation, but instead are one type of information that investors may wish to consider when assessing a fund.

The metrics are not indicative of how or whether ESG factors will be integrated into a fund. Unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, the metrics do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.

All data is from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings as of May 19, 2024, based on holdings as of Apr 30, 2024. As such, the fund’s sustainable characteristics may differ from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings from time to time.

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% (or 50% for bond funds and money market funds) of the fund’s gross weight must come from securities with ESG coverage by MSCI ESG Research (certain cash positions and other asset types deemed not relevant for ESG analysis by MSCI are removed prior to calculating a fund’s gross weight; the absolute values of short positions are included but treated as uncovered), the fund’s holdings date must be less than one year old, and the fund must have at least ten securities.


Sustainability Characteristics and Business Involvement metrics are updated monthly, subject to the availability of data. Sustainability Characteristics do not evaluate the ESG-related investment objectives of, or any ESG strategies used by, a fund and are not indicative of how well ESG factors are integrated by a fund. Providers other than MSCI ESG Research may also prepare ESG ratings or scores using their own methodologies, which may be different than the methodology used by MSCI ESG Research.

In general, the values shown for “market value,” “weight,” and “notional value” (the “calculated values”) are based on a price provided by a third-party pricing vendor and do not reflect the impact of fair valuation, if applicable (the “vendor price”). The vendor price is not necessarily the price at which the Fund values the portfolio holding for the purposes of determining the Fund’s net asset value (the “valuation price”), and the calculated values may have been different if the valuation price were to have been used to calculate such values. The vendor price is as of the most recent date for which a price is available and may not necessarily be as of the date shown above.

Where a Fund invests directly or indirectly in Russian equity securities, as well as American Depositary Receipts and Global Depositary Receipts evidencing ownership of Russian equity securities and for which trading has been suspended, the calculated values for such securities are based on the Fund’s valuation price.
