UBS IQ MSCI Australia Ethical ETF (UBA)

The Fund  

UBA provides a diversified core exposure to the Australian equity market and aims to replicate the performance of the MSCI Australia ex Tobacco ex Controversial Weapons Index, before fees and expenses by physically holding the shares within the underlying Index. 

The Index  

The MSCI Australia ex Tobacco ex Controversial Weapons Index is designed to measure the performance of the large and mid cap segments of the Australia market. The Index comprises approximately 70 constituents listed on the Australian exchanges, and covers approximately 85% of the free float-adjusted market capitalisation in Australia. The Index excludes companies with significant business activities involving tobacco and those engaged in the production of cluster bombs, landmines, chemical and biological weapons and depleted uranium weapons. This exclusion is the sole difference between the Index for the Fund and its parent index. As a result of the screen there are no companies screened out of the parent index. Constituent selection is based on data from MSCI research.
