Exchange-Traded Funds



The Fund seeks to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of the Bloomberg Barclays MSCI US Aggregate ESG Select Index.

ETF Description

The Fund employs a passive management (or “indexing”) approach, investing in a diversified portfolio of U.S. investment grade bonds that satisfy certain environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) criteria.

Index Description

The Bloomberg Barclays MSCI US Aggregate ESG Select Index (the “Index”) uses a rules-based methodology that seeks to provide investment exposure that generally replicates the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index (the "Base Index") through a portfolio of securities that adhere to predetermined ESG criteria. The Index is composed of U.S. government securities, debt securities issued by U.S. corporations, residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities, asset-based securities and U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities issued by non-U.S. governments and corporations. The Index is rebalanced monthly.


Consider the Fund if you’re seeking:
  • Exposure to the broad U.S. investment grade bond market through a portfolio designed for investors who value ESG principles
  • A diversified core fixed income allocation
  • Intraday, exchange-traded liquidity
  • A transparent, low-cost investment solution

Risk Considerations

Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved. This ETF seeks to generally track the investment results of an index; however the Fund may underperform, outperform or be more volatile than the referenced index. Because the Index selects securities for inclusion based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria, the Fund may forgo some market opportunities available to funds that don't use these criteria. Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of the Fund’s portfolio will decline because of rising interest rates. Credit risk is the risk that an issuer of a debt security may be unable or unwilling to make interest and principal payments when due and the related risk that the value of a debt security may decline because of concerns about the issuer’s ability or willingness to make such payments. These and other risk considerations are described in detail in the Fund's prospectus.
