In addition to the comprehensive directory of mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), exchange traded notes (ETNs) that describes their sustainable investment strategies as described in fund prospectuses and other offering documents that’s available to all subscribers, Premium subscribes will also have access to Fund Disclosure Assessments (FDAs).

Sustainable Investing Interactive Questionnaire
Our interactive questionnaire is a way to engage with investors on societal issues that are most important to them and to help prioritize their objectives. The output allows for an alignment of interests between an investor’s sustainability preferences (or group of investors in the case of 401(k) plans, for example), and alternative sustainable investing strategies and/or funds.
