The Russell Australia ESG High Dividend Index is a custom-built equity index, designed to provide investors with exposure to companies that demonstrate positive environmental, social and governance (ESG) characteristics after negatively screening for companies that have significant involvement in a range of activities deemed inconsistent with widely recognised responsible investment considerations. The Index is also weighted to improve expected future income including franking credits.
The Index begins with a universe of approximately 300 stocks listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, including infrastructure stocks and excluding foreign ownership limits. The index initially excludes companies that are considered by a Responsible Investment Committee to be inconsistent with certain ESG objectives. The index then assigns the remaining securities a score based on pre-defined ESG and dividend characteristics, with the final index comprising up to 100 securities as determined by their scores and their market weighting.
