FAQs about the Lion-OCBC Securities Singapore Low Carbon ETF
What is an ETF?

Exchange traded Funds (ETFs) provide you access to a diversified portfolio of securities, and allow you to track the performance of asset classes like shares, bonds or commodities. With ETFs, you can instantly invest in a basket of securities without having to purchase the individual shares.

What is ESG investing?

ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. ESG investing is the consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors alongside financial factors, in the investment decision-making process.

Different labels like sustainable investing, socially responsible investing, ethical investing and impact investing all form part of ESG investing, with ESG factors covering an extremely broad range of issues - from avoiding investing in tobacco companies to financing clean water initiatives.

Why does Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) matter?

There are two broad schools of thought when it comes to why ESG matters; one starts from the role of investors in society and the other focuses on risk management.

Many investor groups including pension funds, charities and endowment funds, see their role as more than just return-seekers. They are conscious that funding our retirements, financing societal initiatives and contributing to the cost of education, can give them a function within wider society.

With this responsibility comes influence. These investor groups manage significant pools of capital; directing this capital gives them a substantial amount of authority. They decide how and where they want their funds allocated, and can choose to favour investments that aim not to have a negative effect on society, or those targeting a positive effect.

The other major philosophy behind ESG is rooted in risk management.

Investors who take this approach incorporate ESG factors into their investment process to help mitigate risk. For example, a potential investment in a company with low ESG standards could expose the portfolio to a variety of risks faced by the company in the future, such as worker strikes, litigation and negative publicity, resulting in lower future returns. For investors, monitoring the ESG credentials of an investment can lead to better risk-based judgements.
