B15FTRUU Bloomberg Barclays MSCI US Corporate 1-5 Year ESG Focus Index

The Index is composed of U.S. dollar-denominated, investment-grade corporate bonds having remaining maturities between one and five years and issued by companies that have positive environmental, social and governance characteristics while exhibiting risk and return characteristics similar to those of the parent index of such index. The Index Provider begins with the Parent Index, excludes companies involved in the business of tobacco, companies involved with controversial weapons, producers and retailers of civilian firearms, companies involved in certain fossil fuels-related activity such as the production of thermal coal, thermal coal-based power generation and extraction of oil sands based on revenue or percentage of revenue thresholds for certain categories (e.g. $20 million or 5%) and categorical exclusions for others (e.g. controversial weapons). The Index Provider also excludes companies involved in very severe business controversies and then follows a quantitative process in an effort to determine optimal weights for securities to maximize exposure to securities of companies with higher ESG ratings,subject to maintaining risk and return characteristics similar to the Parent Index.
