SPDR offers both equity and fixed income ESG investments in its ETF range, allowing investors access to broad benchmarks while excluding issuers that derive significant revenue from certain controversial practices, industries or product lines and (for fixed income products), using best-in-class/positive screening in an effort to maximise ESG Scores.
We have launched three ESG ETFs in the Dividend Aristocrats family, which offer investors a blend of stable dividends from sustainable investments.

Equity securities may fluctuate in value in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.
Bonds generally present less short-term risk and volatility than stocks, but contain interest rate risk (as interest rates raise, bond prices usually fall); issuer default risk; issuer credit risk; liquidity risk; and inflation risk. These effects are usually pronounced for longer-term securities. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to a substantial gain or loss.
The returns on a portfolio of securities which exclude companies that do not meet the portfolio's specified ESG criteria may trail the returns on a portfolio of securities which include such companies. A portfolio's ESG criteria may result in the portfolio investing in industry sectors or securities which underperform the market as a whole.
