Learn more about how to invest in ETFs and what ESG stands for below!

Remind me, what are ETFs?

Investors who are looking for an easy, “set it and forget it” approach to investing usually turn to exchange-traded funds, aka ETFs. ETFs are diversified funds that trade like stocks. Unlike a regular mutual fund, which is a managed portfolio or pool of stocks, bonds and other investor-acquired securities, ETFs track the performance of an underlying index faithfully.

ETFs are especially popular with beginner investors because a) they’re super simple to navigate and b) they offer the highest possible returns over the long term under the most stable market conditions possible, with reasonable fees and a transparent structure. What’s not to love?

And what does ESG stand for?

ESG stands for environmental, social, and corporate governance, and is a way of evaluating how much a company is working towards goals that benefit the world at large, and not just maximising shareholder profits. ESG-related goals typically include sustainability initiatives that benefit the environment, goals that support social movements, as well as efforts that support diversity and inclusion.

What are ESG-compliant ETFs?

In the world of investing, ETFs that are ESG-compliant put an emphasis on environmental, social and governance factors with the aim of allocating more funding towards initiatives that have a broad positive impact. For example, the stocks of a clothing company that conducts human rights due diligence throughout its entire supply chain can be ESG-compliant, as are the stocks of a company setting up an extensive reforestation programme to offset its use of natural resources.
