Overview of IQ Candriam ESG International Equity ETF offerings
ESG International Equity Exposure: IQSI grants investors exposure to a basket of international (developed markets excluding North America) equities that meet ESG criteria. ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance factors considered in the selection of these companies.
Passive Management: IQSI passively tracks an index designed by Candriam. The fund holds the same companies as the underlying index in similar proportions. This means there's no active selection of stocks by fund managers.
Market Capitalization Weighting: The holdings within the ETF are weighted based on market capitalization. Companies with a larger market value have a bigger influence on the overall fund performance.
Diversification: By design, IQSI offers diversification across various international companies that prioritize ESG factors. This can help spread risk and potentially improve portfolio stability.
Growth Potential: IQSI offers the potential for capital appreciation through the growth of the underlying international companies.
Socially Responsible Investing: By investing in IQSI, investors can align their portfolio with companies focused on environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and good corporate governance practices.
