Seligson Signs Licence for First Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index Fund

SAM, the sustainability investing company, and Dow Jones Indexes have announced that Seligson & Co Fund Management has signed a license for the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index (DJSI Asia Pacific). This is the first index fund worldwide to track this new benchmark. The Seligson & Co Asia Index Fund expands the asset manager’s existing range of two sustainability funds based on the Dow Jones STOXX Sustainability (DJSI STOXX) and Dow Jones Sustainability North America Indexes (DJSI North America).

The DJSI Asia Pacific was introduced earlier this year to track the sustainability leaders within the developed markets in Asia Pacific. The index includes the 20% most sustainable companies out of the largest 600 stocks in the region by free float market capitalization. The underlying SAM assessment covers a variety of issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and human capital.
