15th December, 2020

As part of its commitment to environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) principles, white label ETF issuer, HANetf, has become a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. Becoming a signatory demonstrates HANetf’s long-standing commitment to sustainability.

Nik Bienkowski, Co-CEO of HANetf commented “HANetf is delighted to affirm its commitment to responsible and sustainable investing. In early December, together with iClima Earth, we launched our first ESG exchange traded fund (ETF) the iClima Global Decarbonisation Enablers UCITS ETF, which is the first climate change ETF in the world to provide exposure to companies offering products and services that enable CO2e avoidance solutions and to quantify that impact[1]. 

“We are putting responsible investing at the heart of our new product strategy to contribute towards a more sustainable economy and investment products.  We are currently in the process of collaborating with other partners to launch new ESG products to European Investors in early 2021.”

When you trade ETFs your capital is at risk.

“ETFs have been growing in popularity as a way to deploy ESG-based investment strategies,” said PRI CEO Fiona Reynolds, “so we welcome HANetf taking the decision to join the PRI, and the positive message that this sends to other ETF providers.  We look forward to working with them in the coming months.”

 

Committing to six principles

The goal of the PRI is to understand the implications of sustainability for investors and support signatories to incorporate these issues into their decision-making and ownership practices.

The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, the financial markets, and economies in which they operate, and ultimately the environment and society. HANetf has committed to the following in becoming a PRI signatory:

  • incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes
  • being an active owner and incorporating ESG issues into ownership policies and practices
  • seeking appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest
  • promoting acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry
  • working with the PRI Secretariat and other signatories to enhance their effectiveness in implementing the Principles
  • reporting on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles
