Invesco MSCI Europe ESG Universal Screened UCITS ETF

Product description

The Invesco MSCI Europe ESG Universal Screened UCITS ETF aims to provide the performance of the MSCI Europe ESG Universal Select Business Screens Index, after the impact of fees. 

The Index tracks the performance of large and mid-capitalisation companies in Europe and aims to represent the performance of an investment strategy that, by adjusting the constituents’ free-float market capitalisation weights based upon certain environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) metrics, seeks to increase overall exposure to those companies demonstrating both a robust ESG profile as well as a positive trend in improving that profile. 

The Index is constructed from the MSCI Europe Index by excluding securities that: 1) have not been assessed or rated by MSCI on the basis of their ESG credentials; 2) have faced very severe controversies pertaining to ESG issues over the last three years; or 3) are involved in controversial weapons, conventional weapons, nuclear weapons, oil sands, thermal coal or tobacco. Each of the eligible component securities is then assigned a combined ESG score, which reflects MSCI’s assessment of both the security’s current ESG rating, as well as the trend in that rating, defined as the change in the security’s ESG rating over time. This combined ESG score is then applied to re-weight the eligible securities in the Index. The Index is rebalanced on a semi-annual basis.

Key risks

General Investment Risk: The value of investments, and income from them, can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invested.

Currency risk: The Fund’s performance may be adversely affected by variations in the exchange rates between the base currency of the Fund and the currencies to which the Fund is exposed.

Equity Risk: The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by a number of factors including the activities and results of the issuer and general and regional economic and market conditions. This may result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund.

Environmental, Social and Governance Risk: The Fund intends to invest in securities of issuers that manage their ESG exposures better relative to their peers. This may affect the Fund’s exposure to certain issuers and cause the Fund to forego certain investment opportunities. The Fund may perform differently to other funds, including underperforming other funds that do not seek to invest in securities of issuers based on their ESG ratings.
