Fund aim

L&G Germany Equity UCITS ETF (the “Fund”) is an exchange traded fund ("ETF") that aims to track the performance of the Solactive Core Germany Large & Mid Cap Index NTR (the "Index") subject to the deduction of the ongoing charges and other costs associated with operating the Fund.

  • Aims to track the performance of the Solactive Core Germany Large & Mid Cap Index NTR
  • Invests in a diverse mix of leading German companies from a variety of sectors
  • Employs a straightforward, low-cost and pragmatic index replication approach
  • Does it promote sustainability characteristics? The Fund promotes a range of environmental and social characteristics which are met by tracking the Index. Further information on how such characteristics are met by the Fund can be found in the Fund Supplement.

Solactive Core Germany Large & Mid Cap Index NTR

The Index is designed to be a benchmark for the German equity market and measures the performance of large and mid-cap publicly traded German companies which satisfy minimum criteria relating to liquidity and size and excludes companies: (a) engaged in pure coal mining; (b) involved in the production of controversial weapons, such as cluster weapons, anti-personnel mines or biological and chemical weapons; or (c) that, for a continuous period of three years, have been classified as being in breach of at least one of the UN Global Compact principles, which is a set of globally accepted standards on human rights, labour, environment and corruption. The constituents are weighted according to their “free-float market capitalisation” which is a measure of the total market value of the proportion of a company’s shares that are publicly traded (i.e. “floating”) in the stock market as opposed to locked-in shares held by promoters, company officers, controlling-interest investors, or government authorities.

LGIM's Future World Protection List

The Future World Protection List (‘FWPL’) consists of companies that fail to meet minimum standards of globally accepted business practices on sustainability, or our minimum requirements on the carbon transition. There are three components to the list:

  • Companies that generate 20% or more of their revenues from involvement in mining and extraction of thermal coal, thermal-coal power generation and oil sands,
  • Companies that are in breach of one or more principles of the United Nation Global Compact for a continuous period of three years (36 months) or more (that are considered persistent violators), or
  • Companies involved in the manufacture and production of controversial weapons.

The Fund excludes investments in companies on FWPL. The list is monitored on an on-going basis and updated semi-annually. In order to determine the companies included on the list, we use data from a number of external ESG data providers.
