The iSTOXX Europe ESG Leaders Additional Exclusions Select 30 Index captures the performance of 30 European stocks with low volatility and high dividends from the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index. STOXX will exclude companies that are non-compliant with the Global Standards Screening (GSS) or are involved in Controversial Weapon activities, as identified by Sustainalytics.
Additionally, companies involved in Tobacco, Thermal Coal and Military Contracting are also excluded. The component selection process also excludes all stocks whose 3- or 12-month historical volatilities are the highest. Among the remaining stocks, the 30 with the highest 12-month historical dividend yields are selected to be included in the index. Those constituents are weighted according to the inverse of their volatility, with a cap at 10%. The indices are reviewed quarterly.
