MSCI Fund ESG Quality Score
The MSCI ESG Fund Quality Score measures the overall ESG quality (for example of the holdings of mutual funds) as measured by the ability of constituent companies to manage medium- to long-term risks and opportunities arising from ESG exposures. It assesses funds on a scale from 0 to 10. A score of 10 reflects underlying holdings that rank best-in-class globally based on their exposure to and management of ESG risks and opportunities. A score of 0 reflects holdings that generally rank worst in class globally based on their exposure to similar factors. Since inception in 2016, numerous flagship strategies of Bank J.
