Launch of the Ethical US Equity Index
October 08, 2014

After having set up the Ethical Europe Equity Index in April 2013, today Solactive AG launched its Ethical US Equity Index. This second index was developped following a high demand for structured products associated to the first Ethical Europe Equity index. Thanks to this new index a selection of ethical stocks from the US is now equally offered.

The index is composed of 30 stocks from companies listed in the US, selected according to the best-in-class approach based on their ESG[i] and ethical performance, combined with financial criteria. 

Forum ETHIBEL is responsible for monitoring the strict adherence to the predefined ethical principles and for auditing the selection process of the index components, according to the Solactive Rulebook.

The composition of the index is reviewed quarterly. More information is available on the Solactive website.
