BlackRock tuo vastuullisen sijoittamisen valtavirtaan uusilla ETF-rahastoillaan, mallisalkuillaan ja data-analytiikallaan

Jaa

iSharesin uusi vastuullisen sijoittamisen Core ETF -rahastojen sarja tuo ympäristöön, yhteiskuntaan ja hallinnointiin liittyvät tekijät (ESG) sijoitussalkkujen ytimeen. iSharesin ETF-rahastojen ESG-tietojen julkistaminen, mallisalkut ja analyysityökalut lisäävät läpinäkyvyyttä ja helpottavat sijoittamista. BlackRock ennustaa ESG-ETF:iin sijoitettujen varojen ylittävän 400 miljardin dollarin rajan globaalisti vuoteen 2028 mennessä.

Helsinki, 23.10.2018 – BlackRock on julkistanut uuden sarjan vastuullisen sijoittamisen (ESG) ETF-rahastoja, ESG-dataa, mallisalkkuja ja salkkuanalyysejä yksinkertaistaakseen vastuullista sijoittamista kasvavalle joukolle sijoittajia, jotka haluavat linkittää omat arvonsa pitkän aikavälin sijoitustavoitteisiinsa.

BlackRock toi Core ETF -sarjan Euroopan markkinoille neljä vuotta sitten auttaakseen pitkällä aikavälillä sijoittavia rakentamaan aiempaa älykkäämpiä ja arvokkaampia sijoitussalkkuja. Kuusi uutta vastuullisen sijoittamisen Core ETF -rahastoa perustuu sarjan menestykseen uudenlaisina sijoitustuotteina, ja ne täydentävät iSharesin olemassa olevaa 15 rahaston ESG UCITS ETF-sarjaa.

Philipp Hildebrand, Vice Chairman, BlackRock, sanoo: “On selvää, että sellaisten sijoittajien joukko kasvaa, jotka haluavat tehdä sijoituspäätöksensä arvojensa mukaisesti. Heidän sijoitussalkkujensa vastuullisuuden läpinäkyvyyden lisääntyminen auttaa heitä arvioimaan mahdollisia ESG:hen liittyviä riskejä ja mahdollisuuksia. Vastuullisesti toimivat yritykset kestävät hyvin kolhuja ja markkinamuutoksia, joten vastuullisessa sijoittamisessa kysymys ei enää ole ”miksi?” vaan ”miksi ei?”

iSharesin vastuullisen sijoittamisen Core-sarja (iShares Sustainable Core Suite)

Vastuullisen sijoittamisen Core-sarjaan kuuluu kuusi uutta ESG ETF -rahastoa. Ne seuraavat sellaisia MSCI-indeksejä, jotka sulkevat pois aseet, ydinaseet, tupakan, lämpöhiilen ja öljyhiekan sekä yritykset, jotka eivät noudata Yhdistyneiden Kansakuntien Global Compact -periaatteita. Jos sijoittaja haluaa välttää näihin liiketoiminta-alueisiin sijoittamista, hänelle on tarjolla aiempaa laajempi sarja yksinkertaisia välineitä, joita he voivat käyttää salkkunsa rakennuspalikkoina samaan hintaan kuin muilla Core-rahastoilla.

Stephen Cohen, Head of iShares EMEA, BlackRock, sanoo: “Eurooppalaiset sijoittajat keskittyvät etsimään enemmän vastinetta rahoilleen ja heillä on käytettävissään entistä parempaa tekniikkaa ja työkaluja. He voivatkin nyt kehittää tapaansa rakentaa salkkujaan haluttujen tuottojen aikaansaamiseksi. iSharesin uusien Core-rahastojen avulla vastuullinen sijoittaminen on nyt yhtä helppoa kuin ’perinteinen’ sijoittaminen. iSharesin Core-ETF:t ovat helpottaneet sijoittamista selvästi, ja uskomme, että uusi rahastosarja tuo vastuullisen sijoittamisen sijoittajien salkkujen ytimeen.”

MSCI:n pääjohtaja Baer Pettit sanoo: “Sijoittajat ja varainhoitajat vaativat meiltä yhä useammin sijoituskohteiden poissulkemista ESG-tekijöiden pohjalta, jotta he voivat hallinnoida salkkujaan tehokkaasti. Uusien rahastojen markkinoille tuominen tukee MSCI:n sitoutumista kehittyvän sääntelyn seuraamiseen ja sellaisten innovatiivisten indeksiratkaisujen tarjoamiseen, jotka ottavat huomioon kaikki sijoitustrendit ja sijoittajien tarpeet. Tässä tapauksessa MSCI loi valmiin ESG-tekijöihin perustuvan poissulkevan indeksin, jota asiakkaiden on helppo käyttää.”

ESG-malleja ja tietotyökaluja sijoittamisen helpottamiseksi

BlackRockin teknologian – ESG-datan, salkkujen rakennusmallien ja riskienarviointityökalujen – avulla on mahdollista luopua vastuullisen sijoittamisen joko-tai-mallista:

  • iShares.com-osoitteessa avoimesti saatavilla oleva ESG-data antaa sijoittajille hyvän näkyvyyden ESG-tuotteiden mittareihin, hiili-intensiteettiin ja liiketoiminnan sitoutumiseen. Sivuilla on tästä päivästä lähtien tietoa kolmestakymmenestä ETF:stä mukaan lukien vastuullisen sijoittamisen Core-sarjaan kuuluvat ETF:t ja vastaavat iSharesin Core-sarjan tuotteet. Tulevan vuoden aikana kaikkien iSharesin rahastojen tiedot tuodaan julki. Tämä on osa koko BlackRockin laajuista aloitetta helpottaa asiakkaiden pääsyä ESG-dataan ja vastuullisuuteen liittyviin näkemyksiin sekä sijoitusprosessiimme maailmanlaajuisesti.
  •  
  • BlackRock tuo sijoitusneuvojien ja itsenäisten varainhoitajien käyttöön viisi strategista ESG-mallisalkkua, joilla on erilaiset riskiprofiilit ja jotka voidaan toteuttaa käyttämällä UCITS iShares ETF:iä.
  •  
  • BlackRockin Aladdin-alusta mahdollistaa myös salkkutason ESG-analyysin ja raportoinnin, jotka auttavat sijoittajia ymmärtämään riskejä ja mahdollisuuksia paremmin. Aladdin seuraa ESG-arvosanoja ja konkreettisia mittareita ja arvioi näiden vaikutuksen salkun kokonaistuottoihin.

Vastuullisen sijoittamisen käännekohta

BlackRock uskoo, että ESG-ETF:iin sijoitettujen varojen määrä kasvaa voimakkaasti seuraavan vuosikymmenen aikana, koska sekä yksityis- että instituutiosijoittajien kiinnostus niitä kohtaan kasvaa vahvasti. BlackRockin ennusteiden mukaan ESG-ETF:iin sijoitettujen varojen odotetaan nousevan nykyisestä 25 miljardista dollarista yli 400 miljardiin dollariin vuoteen 2028 mennessä. ESG-ETF:ien nopea kasvu lisää ETF:ien osuutta ESG-rahastoista (ml. sekä ETF:t että perinteiset rahastot) nykyisestä 3 prosentista 21 prosenttiin vuoteen 2028 mennessä*.[1]

Vastuullinen sijoittaminen BlackRockissa

BlackRock on kauan uskonut, että vastuullisuuteen liittyvillä tekijöillä – aina yritysten hallitusten kokoonpanosta henkilöstöhallintoon ja ilmaston muutokseen – on pitkällä aikavälillä aitoja taloudellisia vaikutuksia. Tämä vaikuttaa yhä vahvemmin sijoitusprosessiin. iSharesin rahastojen lisäksi BlackRock hallinnoi laajaa joukkoa vastuullisen sijoittamisen ratkaisuja kattavista ESG-strategioista temaattisiin ja vaikuttavuusstrategioihin, joiden avulla asiakkaat voivat sijoittaa pääomansa YK:n kestävän kehityksen tavoitteita noudattaen. Lisäksi BlackRock hallinnoi yhtä maailman suurimmista uudistuvan energian rahastoista. BlackRock jatkaa skaalautuvien tuotteiden ja räätälöityjen ratkaisujen rakentamista käyttämällä kaikkia omaisuusluokkia – listattuja osakkeita ja lainoja, yksityistä uusiutuvaa energiaa, hyödykkeitä ja reaaliomaisuutta. Tässä se hyödyntää syvällistä osaamistaan alfa-sijoittamisessa ja indeksistrategioissa.

BlackRock Takes Sustainable Investing Mainstream with New ETFs, Model Portfolios and Data Analytics

  • New iShares Sustainable Core ETF suite puts Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) funds at the heart of portfolios
  • ESG data disclosure on iShares ETFs, model portfolios, and analysis tools to bring transparency and make implementation easier
  • BlackRock predicts global ESG ETF assets will rise to US$400 Billion by 2028*[2]

Helsinki, 23 October 2018 – BlackRock has unveiled a new set of sustainable exchange traded funds (ETFs), ESG data disclosures, model portfolios and portfolio analytics to deliver a simplified sustainable investment experience to the growing number of investors seeking to align their values with their long-term financial objectives.

BlackRock pioneered the Core ETF series in Europe four years ago to help long-term investors construct smarter, better value portfolios. The six new Sustainable Core ETFs build on the success of this range in establishing a new standard of investment access, and complement iShares’ existing 15-strong range of ESG UCITS ETFs.

Philipp Hildebrand, Vice Chairman of BlackRock, says: “It is clear that there is a growing movement of investors who want to align their investment decisions with their values and beliefs. Increased transparency on the sustainability profile of their investment portfolios will enable investors to understand the potential ESG-related risks and opportunities they are exposed to. Strong ESG performers are more resilient and this has led to an irreversible move from an era of asking “why?” to “why not?” in sustainable investing.”

Introducing the iShares Sustainable Core Suite

The Sustainable Core suite consists of six new ESG ETF funds that track MSCI indices that screen out controversial weapons, nuclear weapons, civilian firearms,tobacco, companies implicated in the violation of the United Nations Global Compact principles, thermal coal and oil sands. Investors looking to avoid exposure to these business activities now have an even broader set of simple, accessible tools, at the same price point as Core building blocks:

Stephen Cohen, Head of iShares EMEA at BlackRock, added: “A greater focus on value for money and the availability of better technology and tools is empowering European investors to evolve how they build portfolios to achieve intended outcomes. With the iShares Sustainable Core suite, sustainable investing is now as easy as ‘traditional’ investing. Just as iShares Core ETFs have dramatically simplified the investor experience, we believe this complementary range will play a key role in bringing sustainable investing to the heart of investor portfolios.”

 

Baer Pettit, President at MSCI, commented: “We are observing a growing demand amongst asset owners and wealth managers for exclusions based on environmental, social and governance criteria that will enable them to efficiently manage their investment portfolios. This launch underpins MSCI’s commitment to monitor the evolving regulatory framework and to provide innovative index solutions that address the full spectrum of investor trends and needs. In this instance, MSCI has created an off-the-shelf index with ESG screens that is easy for our clients to use and implement.”

 

ESG models and data tools to improve the ESG investment experience

BlackRock technology is also making it possible to break out of the ‘either/or’ model of sustainable investing with new enhancements in ESG data, portfolio construction and risk evaluation tools:

  • Transparent ESG data on iShares.com will create greater transparency for investors on ESG product metrics, carbon intensity and business involvement, starting today with 30 ETFs spanning the Sustainable Core range and the existing equivalent iShares Core products and extended to the full iShares range over the coming year. This is part of a firm-wide initiative to expand access to ESG data and sustainability-related insights for clients and across our investment processes globally.
  •  
  • BlackRock is launching five strategic ESG model portfolios for financial advisers and independent asset managers in a range of risk profiles and implemented through UCITS iShares ETFs.
  •  
  • BlackRock’s Aladdin also provides portfolio-level ESG analysis and reporting that helps investors better understand risks and opportunities, by monitoring ESG scores and tangible metrics to determine their impact on overall portfolio returns.

Tipping point moment for sustainable investing

BlackRock expects that ESG ETFs assets under management will rise dramatically in the next decade driven by increased interest from retail investors as well as continued strong demand from institutions. According to BlackRock projections, ESG ETF fund assets are expected to grow from US$25 billion today to more than US$400 billion by 2028. The rapid growth in ESG ETFs will increase the ETF share of total ESG ETF and mutual fund assets from 3% today to 21% by 2028*.[3]

Fund Disclaimers

iShares MSCI EM IMI ESG Screened UCITS ETF USD

Concentration Risk: Investment risk is concentrated in specific sectors, countries, currencies or companies. This means the Fund is more sensitive to any localised economic, market, political or regulatory events.

Counterparty Risk: The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Share Class to financial loss.

Currency Risk: The Fund invests in other currencies. Changes in exchange rates will therefore affect the value of the investment.

Emerging Markets Risk: Emerging markets are generally more sensitive to economic and political conditions than developed markets. Other factors include greater 'Liquidity Risk', restrictions on investment or transfer of assets and failed/delayed delivery of securities or payments to the Fund.

Equity Risk: The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Risk: The benchmark index’s ESG rating assessment of an issuer’s performance is intended to be relative to the standards of the issuer’s industry peers. No exclusion (apart from controversial weapons) is made on the basis of how ethical a particular industry/sector is perceived to be. Investors should therefore make a personal ethical assessment of the Index prior to investing in the Fund.

Liquidity Risk: Lower liquidity means there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the Fund to sell or buy investments readily.

Liquidity Risk: Lower liquidity means there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the ETC to sell or buy investments readily. 

Precious Metal Linked Securities Risk: The value of the ETC will be affected by movements in the price of the precious metal to which it is linked. The price of a precious metal can go down as well as up and the performance of a precious metal in any future period may not mirror its past performance. An investment in the ETC linked to a metal is not the same as investing directly and physically holding the relevant metal and there are risks attached. 

Metal markets may suffer from market disruption or volatility caused by shortages of physical metals. Such events could result in sudden increases in metal prices for a short period ("price spikes"). Changes in supply and demand for investment products offering investors an exposure to precious metals will also directly impact on the supply and demand in the market for the underlying precious metals. This may increase the volatility in the price and supply of the relevant precious metals.

The market price of each ETC will be affected by the value and volatility of the metal referenced by the relevant ETC, the value and volatility of metals in general and a number of other factors. Investors should be aware that the secondary market price of the ETC can go down as well as up throughout the life of the ETC.
