Sustainable Infrastructure Indices

The ETFx Sustainable Infrastructure Indices are a modular set of indices that offers investors comprehensive exposure to infrastructure equities globally.

For exposure to sustainable infrastructure, we believe that sector­ based indices provide more effective tools for portfolio constructions over geographic/regional based indices. Furthermore, modified equal weighting has many advantages over market cap weights when providing exposures to relatively inefficient markets.

Why Sustainable Infrastructure?

  • Focused set of infrastructure classes that an investor may tailor for investment needs
  • GDP screen considers economic output as the primary qualifying variable for nations
  • Liquidity and market value screen qualifies stock issues
  • Higher yielding securities given preference over lower yielding securities
