Citi issues ESG structured investment

Citi has issued a structured investment linked to the iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF.

The ETF tracks the performance of the MSCI USA Extended ESG Focus Index which is composed of US companies that have positive ESG characteristics.

“This issuance was specifically tailored to investors who are looking for broad equity exposure through a structured investment, but who are keen to be associated with environmentally conscious investment solutions,” said Meredith Chiampa, Director, Multi-Asset Group Structurer. “Thus the investment has double green qualities via impact investing through the green bond program and returns linked to companies with strong ESG credentials.”
