Goldman Sachs AM has announced today the launch of the Goldman Sachs Global Green Bond UCITS ETF, an ETF that follows an index developed with Solactive. The fund is one of the first passive green bond vehicles in the sector that follows a custom-made index and with a declaration of conformity with article 9 of the SFDR.

The new ETF expands Goldman Sachs AM's investment offering in green bonds and provides exposure to the Solactive Global Green Bond Index. The index has been developed in collaboration with the manager's specialized team in green, social and impact bonds, which has become the largest active manager of open green bond funds in the UCITS space, both by assets under supervision and by net flows in 2023.

As part of the index methodology, the green, social and impact bond team applies its enhanced selection of sustainable investments at both the issuer and bond level. As a result, the index aims to include companies with lower climate risk than comparable passive benchmark indices.

The Goldman Sachs Global Green Bond UCITS ETF aims to follow the green bond issuances of the countries belonging to the G-10, which will allow investors to replace a part of their global fixed income portfolios with bonds that meet certain sustainable investment criteria such as the exclusion of projects and sectors and the analysis of the issuers' climate transition policies.

The new global green bond ETF from Goldman Sachs Asset Management is part of its offering of global fixed income and liquidity solutions, which as of the end of 2023 represented assets under management of 822,000 million dollars. Recently, Goldman Sachs Asset Management has reached 10,000 million dollars in assets under management dedicated to green, social and impact bonds, of which 5,500 million are in open funds.


"This latest addition to our growing range of green bond funds demonstrates our ongoing commitment to offering investors a range of ways to access the green bond markets. Today's green bond investors include a growing number of traditional fixed income clients, not just those primarily focused on impact and environmental, social and governance criteria. In addition, green bonds are an important source of investment to drive the climate transition, which is reflected in last year's record issuances.”

Bram Bos, Global Head of Green, Social & Impact Bonds at Goldman Sachs AM

"The global green bond market is a growing source of opportunities for investors looking to complement their fixed income exposure with green, social and impact bonds. We plan to continue expanding our product range to support our clients' investment and sustainability objectives".
