Vanguard launches ESG corporate bond ETF

Vanguard ETF corporate bond fundVanguard has launched a corporate bond ETF designed to be a “core building block” for ESG portfolios.

The Vanguard ESG Global Corporate Bond Ucits ETF screens out bonds associated with non-ESG areas, such as non-renewable energy and vice products.

The benchmark that the product tracks is the Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Global Corporate Float-Adjusted Liquid Bond Screened Index and the ongoing charges figure for the ETF is 0.15%.
