4 Notable Sustainable Fund Launches

Offerings from Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, and Fidelity broaden the choices for sustainable investors

Mentioned: , , , ,

The sustainable funds universe in the United States continued to expand in the first half of 2018, with 13 new funds launched. Eight of them are open-end funds and five are exchange-traded funds. Seven are actively managed and six are passively managed. According to my count, there are now 285 sustainable open-end funds and ETFs available to U.S. investors. To make my list, a fund must make clear in its prospectus that it uses sustainability or environment, social, and governance criteria and/or seeks to deliver measurable impact alongside financial returns.
