UBS IQ MSCI Japan Ethical ETF (UBJ)

The Fund  

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

The Index  

The MSCI Japan ex Tobacco ex Controversial Weapons Index is designed to measure the performance of the large and mid cap segments of the Japan market. With approximately 320 constituents, the Index covers approximately 85% of the free float-adjusted market capitalisation in Japan. 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 is one company screened out of the parent index. Constituent selection is based on data from MSCI research.
