July 2016: Socially Responsible Investing: What to expect?

We investigate a new dataset of internationally diverse socially responsible investing (SRI) exposures represented by rigorous rules-based and transparent SRI indices. We test the hypothesis whether the SRI screening process adds value to an investor's portfolio and find that return differences between SRI screened and conventional portfolios are not statistically significant. Our results also demonstrate that investors can expect higher risk-adjusted return levels vis-a-vis conventional portfolios.

March 2015: An insightful study by the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) - European ETFs and the quality of their index replication.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) have become a virtually indispensable component of a modern client portfolio. While traditional investment funds have dominated client portfolios for decades, ETFs have become increasingly popular over the last ten years. The growing importance of ETFs is due to their transparent, simple investment objective; to generate market returns by tracking a reference index.

Do all European ETFs share the same desirable characteristics? What are the most important criteria for determining how well ETFs replicate their indices?

This is one of the areas analyzed by the study, which has produced a number of interesting and insightful findings.
