Barclays Fixed Income Environment-Social-Governance Indices

Barclays, a global leader in fixed income indexing, and MSCI, a leading provider of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) research, have collaborated on the development of rules-based fixed income benchmark indices that incorporate measures of ESG risk and involvement. The Euro Corporate Catholic Values Index is part of the Barclays MSCI Euro Aggregate Socially Responsible Index, while the Global  Corporate Catholic Values Index is part of the  Barclays MSCI Global Corporate Socially Responsible Index. Both negatively screen issuers involved in alcohol, tobacco, gambling, military weapons, nuclear power, adult entertainment, civilian firearms, and genetically modified organisms. Security eligibility follows the same underlying rules as the Bloomberg Barclays Euro Aggregate Index, with additional ESG negative screening using MSCI ESG Business Involvement Screening Research (BISR) and MSCI Impact Monitor Scores.
