Products Exchange-traded funds

What are ETFs?

An Exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a fund that holds the same mix of investments as a stock or bond market index and trades on a stock exchange. ETFs are similar to mutual funds because they both pool together securities in order to offer investors diversified portfolios, but they have a number of differences as well. The responsible investment strategies applicable to ETFs are fewer than those applicable to other mutual funds.

What are the strategies used by ETF?

Responsible investment ETFs use the Best-in-Class strategy and sometimes exclusionary screens.
