The decision to invest in the promoted fund should take into account all the characteristics or objectives of the promoted fund.

MSCI ACWI ESG Leaders Index construction methodology

The MSCI ACWI ESG Leaders index is constructed by applying two filters to the companies comprising the Benchmark Index (MSCI ACWI):

  • The exclusion of companies participating in controversial activities (example of excluded activities: alcohol, gambling, tobacco, weapons)
  • ESG rating of the remaining companies according to the MSCI methodology, taking into account 35 issues in the environmental (such as carbon footprint or water use), social (such as occupational health and safety or product quality and safety) and governance field (such as the composition of Boards of Directors or shareholders’ rights)
  • Selection by MSCI of companies with the highest ESG ratings, representing 50% of the market capitalization of each sector and region of the Benchmark Index.

MSCI Inc. is the international index provider responsible for evaluating the selection criteria (more information available at
For more information on environmental, social or governance aspects, please refer to TreeTop SICAV’s prospectus.
