The Bloomberg MSCI Global Corporate Float Adjusted Liquid Bond Screened Index represents multi-currency portfolio of investment grade corporate fixed-rate bonds from both developed and emerging market issuers. The Index is constructed from the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Float-Adjusted Corporate Index (the "Parent Index") which represents a similar investment universe which is then screened for certain environmental, social, and corporate governance criteria (the ESG criteria). The Index excludes issuers that engage in activities in, and/or derive revenue (above a threshold) from, certain business segments of the following: adult entertainment, alcohol, gambling, tobacco, nuclear weapons, controversial or conventional weapons, civilian firearms, nuclear power, genetically modified organisms, or thermal coal, oil, or gas.
