FlexShares launches ESG global and US equity ETFs

July 28th, 2016
The new FlexShares ethical ETFs screen stocks on a narrow range of key ESG metrics including carbon emissions reduction, the role of women in the company, and policies against child labour. The FlexShares STOXX US ESG Impact Index Fund (NASDAQ: ESG) and FlexShares STOXX Global ESG Impact Index Fund (NASDAQ: ESGG) aim to provide enhanced risk-adjusted returns by reducing portfolio exposure to specific stocks with operational risks associated with poor ESG scores.
