BMO: Understanding Responsible Investing

Incorporating ESG factors, along side traditional financial metrics in portfolio analysis, can have a positive impact on performance.

Ultimately, the returns you get will be dependent on the approach you adopt. In an active approach, your portfolio managers pick stocks with the goal to outperform the market. With passive ETFs, the goal is to achieve market-like returns with a refined exposure to top ESG rated companies.

Our BMO MSCI Global ESG Leaders Index ETF, ticker ESGG, delivers performance in line with the broad market index, with improvements to the risk associated with environmental, social, and governance issues.
