What is the VanEck MSCI International Sustainable Equity ETF (ESGI)?

ESGI is a world-leading sustainability ETF that focuses the global companies with the highest ESG rating, according to MSCI’s award-winning research. 

ESG investing is investing for ‘good.’ ESG stands for Environment, Social and Governance and encapsulates the range of metrics used to evaluate a company’s impact on the world, also known as sustainable investing, socially responsible investing and ethical investing.

ESGI ETF tracks an index that takes advantage of MSCI’s 200+ ESG analysts, applying a positive screen for companies with high ESG ratings as determined by MSCI’s qualitative framework, as well as applying negative screens for fossil fuels and socially irresponsible business activities. 

The result is the most comprehensive, in depth, dark green index in MSCI’s ESG family.

ESGI is certified by the Responsible Investment Association of Australia.

What are the benefits of the ESGI ETF?

Find the main benefits of the ESGI ETF here:

  • Many ESG approaches take a ‘blunt instrument’ approach to companies, neglecting to consider the different ESG considerations each industry faces. The result is often a portfolio that is concentrated to industries that have relatively few ESG concerns and that emit low carbon, such as IT. The potential risks of such an approach has come to the fore recently due to the tech-rout. VanEck thinks it is possible for a portfolio to achieve diversification while also achieving low carbon and high ESG-ratings.

  • ESGI is one of the few sustainable ESG funds that maintains a sector risk profile similar to that global benchmark index and thus avoids unintended concentration risks. Recently, ESGI investors have benefited from this prudent approach.

  • ESG investing is no longer a trend, it is here to stay. According to the 2020 Global Investment Survey 74% of international investors plan to increase their ESG allocation over the next year.

Does ESGI pay dividends?

Yes, ESGI ETF pays dividends once a year.

What are the risks of the VanEck MSCI International Sustainable Equity ETF?

An investment in the ESGI ETF carries risks associated with ASX trading time differences, financial markets generally, individual company management, industry sectors, foreign currency, country or sector concentration, political, regulatory and tax risks, fund operations and tracking an index.
