The three new ETFs are sub-advised by Newton Investment Management Limited, a BNY Mellon investment firm with long experience of sustainable investing.

Sustainable International Equity ETF 

The fund typically invests at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities of foreign companies that demonstrate attractive investment attributes and sustainable business practices. Paul Markham and Yuko Takano are the fund’s primary portfolio managers.

Sustainable Global Emerging Markets ETF

The fund typically invests at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities of companies listed on exchanges in, organized in, or with their principal place of business in, or have a majority of assets or business in, emerging market countries and that demonstrate attractive investment attributes and sustainable business practices. Paul Birchenough and Ian Smith are the fund’s primary portfolio managers.

“As investors and advisors continue to seek out innovative ways to invest for long term growth while also driving meaningful change across a variety of ESG-related initiatives, the demand for fully transparent, actively managed investment strategies has grown, specifically within ETFs and sustainable solutions,” said Andy Provencher, Head of North America Distribution, BNY Mellon Investment Management, in a statement.
