The FTSE Global Choice Index Series is a market-capitalization-weighted index series employing a transparent rules-based methodology. The series is designed to help investors align their investment choices with their values by applying screens in three Product categories and two Conduct categories related to how companies affect society and the environment.
The Global Choice framework allows investors to align their investment choices with their values by enabling them to invest in companies that are carefully screened for product- and conduct-related issues. Once the stock universe is screened for undesirable characteristics, the index is constructed transparently using market-capitalization weights.
This document focused on the FTSE US All Cap Choice Index and the FTSE Global All Cap ex US Choice Index to illustrate the effects of the screening process.
