Canadian ETF knowledgebase
The fund seeks to provide long-term capital growth by replicating, to the extent possible, the performance of the Jantzi Social Index, net of expenses.
The Index is comprised of securities of Canadian issuers selected by Jantzi based on criteria for identifying companies that reflect a higher standard of environmental and social performance.
The Jantzi Social Index is a free-float market capitalization-weighted common stock index consisting of 60 Canadian companies that pass a set of broadly based environmental, social and governance screening criteria.
The JSI also incorporates several exclusionary indicators, which eliminate firms from contention regardless of what their record of performance may be in other areas.
