The results of a two year research show that women are more interested in investing in a more social responsible way and in companies which have strongly developed a gender equality consciousness.
This is the reason why we have decided to add to our "impact investing" solutions an offer specifically dedicated to gender equality.
The ETF is a joint collaboration between UBS Asset Management and UBS Wealth Management and is part of UBS's commitment to sustainable and impact investing.
UBS ETF Global Gender Equality invests into 100 companies with a focus on diversity of corporate boards and senior leadership positions and selected upon criteria promoted by the United Nations.
UBS will dedicate 5% of management fees received in relation to the ETF, to philanthropic projects supporting the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goal 5 via the UBS Optimus Foundation.
This ETF has been launched as part of our program dedicated to women.
Wealth is changing face and UBS makes a business priority to better serve female clients.
