Index Performance as of 31/10/2017

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 starts with the members of the Russell Global Australia All Cap Index, 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.
