iSTOXX Univest Sustainable World

Index Description

The iSTOXX Univest Sustainable World Index is designed to achieve sustainable carbon reduction in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and intensities over time, while tracking the iSTOXX Univest World Index and providing exposure to Value, Momentum, Quality and Low Risk risk-premia factors. The iSTOXX Univest Sustainable World Index also tilts away from companies that are laggards in corporate governance, and other social criteria. In addition, the Index aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and intensity at least by half by December 2024 (versus the baseline values of iSTOXX Univest World Index in December 2019), and aims to track the iSTOXX Univest World Index with a tracking error close to 1%.

Performance and annual returns

Methodology

The iSTOXX Univest Sustainable World Index is constructed by solving a series of optimization problems using Axioma's portfolio optimization software and the Axioma World-wide medium horizon fundamental factor risk model.Four single factor portfolios are first constructed which are then combined to create a target multifactor portfolio such that the four single factor portfolios contribute equally to active risk. A final optimization is then run to track the target portfolio while managing risk, liquidity risk, and tradability of the portfolio and while satisfying the Climate, Social and Governance constraints.
