ALPHAGLIDER ESG GLOBAL
CONSERVATIVE STRATEGY (AG-C/esg)
May 31, 2019
The AlphaGlider ESG Global Conservative Strategy (AG-C/esg) is a broadly diversified1 strategy that incorporates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. AG-C/esg utilizes exchange-traded funds (ETFs)2 to achieve exposure across multiple asset classes, industries, and geographic regions. Of the five ESG investment strategies offered by AlphaGlider, AG-C/esg is the most conservative. AG-C/esg strives to provide a total return solidly in excess of inflation over a full market cycle and is designed for a cautious investor who wants to take a low level of investment risk or has a short investment horizon. AlphaGlider anticipates fixed income to make up greater than 50% of AG-C/esg, and equities to make up less than 50%.
