Alternative Investments/ESG: Mackenzie Lists Sustainable Investment-Focused ETF
The new Mackenzie ETF listed on Canada’s NEO Exchange.
Mackenzie Investments has returned to the NEO Exchange with the launch of the Mackenzie Corporate Knights Global 100 Index ETF, which will trade under the symbol MCKG. The ETF aims to replicate the performance of the Corporate Knights Global 100 Index and contains equity securities of issuers from across the globe.
The fund portfolio is a collection of 100 leading sustainable companies worldwide, selected through a screening process developed by Corporate Knights, a research and media firm focused on the sustainable economy.
Securities are selected based on sustainability criteria developed and maintained by the Index Provider. Luke Gould, President and CEO of Mackenzie Investments, said the firm was excited to launch the ETF during Earth Week and that it would allow Canadians to invest in global companies with sustainable business practices.

MCKG is the ninth Mackenzie ETF listed on the NEO Exchange, and it can be traded through discount brokerage platforms and full-service dealers.
As a Tier 1 stock exchange for Canada’s innovation economy, NEO lists companies and investment products that are looking for an internationally recognized stock exchange with qualities such as investor trust, quality liquidity, and broad awareness. NEO is responsible for almost 20% of all Canadian ETF trading volume and 10-15% of trading volume in Canadian-listed companies.
