Metrics marked with a checkmark are better than the benchmark. Benchmark comparison calculation methodology
Funds are benchmarked against a representative index based on their investment style (e.g. 'US Large Cap'). Companies are benchmarked against the universe of companies with data coverage for that metric. The displayed comparisons are based on a dollar-weighted average based on the portfolio constituents with data coverage for each metric. For example, 30% less animal exploitation (-30%) means that, as a dollar-weighted average, 30% fewer constituents in the selected portfolio have ties to animal testing and animal food products, compared to their respective benchmarks. Funds are assigned a value for each metric based on a dollar-weighted average of the companies held by that fund with data coverage for that metric.
Nightingale-Rose Chart
This section measures a portfolio's relative performance in 5 major issue areas (Health, Environment, Human Rights, Equal Opportunity, Accountability) according to the following process.
The overall comparison is a coverage-weighted average of the comparison between the portfolio and the benchmark for each of the metrics displayed in the report across each of the major issue areas. For portfolios that include funds, managers' shareholder engagement activities are included in the overall comparisons for each of the 5 major issue areas if at least three companies have improved, or committed to improve disclosure or performance in that issue area following shareholder engagement by the fund managers in your portfolio over the last two years.

The metrics displayed in this report are based on the selected ESG issues for this portfolio.
