Desjardins launches two SRI exchange traded funds

Desjardins Global Asset Management (DGAM), acting as manager and portfolio advisor of the Desjardins Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), has launched two ETFs adhering to a socially responsible investment (SRI) policy.

The Desjardins RI Emerging Markets Multifactor Low CO2 ETF (DFRE) complements the range of ETFs designed to significantly reduce carbon intensity relative to traditional equity indices. As for the Desjardins RI Global Multifactor Fossil Fuel Reserves Free ETF (DRFG), it gives investors a rare opportunity to invest with zero exposure to the traditional energy sector (coal, gas, oil).
 
"We are pleased to offer our investors attractive growth potential while supporting the transition to a greener economy", explains Nicolas Richard, Chief Executive Officer of DGAM.
