New ESG Investment Indexes and Funds for Investors
ESG-driven tools and products for investment continue to be developed by financial institutions to help investors, asset managers, and analysts more accurately define a company’s valuation. The most recent offering comes from Calvert Investments, which has launched a new initiative that it describes as “the next step” in the evolution of responsible investing. Building on 30 years+ expertise, the company has announced a suite of Responsible Indexes and related lower cost Index Funds that will track them. To manage the benchmark universes, Calvert has partnered with S-Network Global Indexes, which specializes in sustainable and impact investing. It’s the latest move—and a major one—in making responsible investing more accessible and more profitable.
