MSCI ESG Focus Indexes

The MSCI ESG Focus Indexes are designed to target companies with positive environmental, social and governance (ESG) characteristics while closely representing the risk and return profile of the underlying market. Each index is constructed through an optimization process that aims to maximize its exposure to ESG, subject to a target tracking error and other constraints. The indexes are sector-diversified and are designed to over-weight companies with high MSCI ESG Ratings and under-weight companies with low ratings. Tobacco and Controversial Weapons companies are not eligible for inclusion.
