Jantzi Social Index

Published in Thematic Indices

In January 2000, Jantzi Research launched the Jantzi Social Index®, partnered with Dow Jones Indexes. The JSI, a socially screened, market capitalization-weighted common stock index modeled on the S&P/TSX 60 consists of 60 Canadian companies that pass a set of broadly based environmental, social, and governance rating criteria. The JSI has begun to generate the first definitive data on the effects of social screening on financial performance in Canada. In April 2001, Meritas Mutual Funds launched the Social Index® Fund, an RRSP eligible mutual fund that invests in common shares of the 60 companies that comprise the JSI®. The fund’s holdings of each company match the sector and industry weights, as well as the relative market capitilizations, of the JSI. Sustainalytics developed a thorough rating framework for the JSI. For most issue areas, including aboriginal relations; community involvement; corporate governance; employee relations; environment; and human rights, the framework calls for a complete examination of each company’s performance record in that area, as well as an evaluation of each company’s record in these areas overall.
