This actively-managed ETF offers exposure to multiple asset classes with a focus on the concept of sustainable investing. GIVE invests in companies that have positive environmental, social, and governance characteristics relative to their industry and sector peers. This fund is well diversified seeing as how its portfolio is actually comprised of four sub-portfolios, including two equity components, alternative long/short and hedging strategies, as well as an allocation to fixed income investments. Investors should note that GIVE charges a very steep 1.70% expense ratio, of which 0.40% goes to the Global Echo Foundation which works on a wide range of social issues including the support of social entrepreneurship and supporting the health and well-being of women and children in communities around the globe. As such, GIVE could be a nice building block for investors seeking a fund with more of a conscience, but for investors looking to keep costs down to an absolute minimum, other cheaper options are likely to be more appealing.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for GIVE on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
