Fund Overview

The AuAg ESG Gold Mining UCITS ETF (ESGO) seeks to offer exposure to an equal-weighted basket of 25 ESG screened companies that are active in the gold mining industry.

The ETF tracks the Solactive AuAg ESG Gold Mining Index which focuses on companies that have low ESG risk characteristics.

The fund uses Sustainalytics to screen the mining universe for their ESG credentials, attributing a risk score based on their findings. Only the top 25 lowest ESG Risk companies are included within the index.

Why Invest?

Europe’s first gold mining ETF with an ESG conscious mandate

  • This is Europe’s first opportunity to access an ESG considerate Gold Mining ETF.

Tracks 25 best-in-class ESG Risk companies in the sector

  • The ESG screening excludes all but the 25 best-in-class ESG Risk companies in the sector. The ESG Risk score is provided by Sustainalytics, who have over 25 years of experience in producing ESG related research.

Equal weighting on index avoids concentration risks

  • An equal-weighted design helps to avoid concentration risks. The probability of having, for example, two companies with a combined weighting of 25-35% is relatively high in a market/liquid weighted index for a single sector. In addition, the possible underweighting of a few dominant mega-companies may also provide a beneficial return profile for AuAg ESG Gold Mining UCITS ETF in a bull market for gold and gold miners.
