"Investors are increasingly looking at socially responsible investing not only as a values-driven decision, but also as one that can potentially lead to better long term returns," said Alex Ashby, director of product development at Global X. "Companies that demonstrate a commitment to the Multi-stakeholder Operating System tend to treat each of their stakeholders well and take a longer term view of corporate performance. By partnering with Concinnity Advisors, who are experts in assessing the MsOS approach, our goal was to bring to market a product that identifies the companies that are achieving positive outcomes across all stakeholder groups and are setting the standard for taking a responsible and sustainable approach to operating a business."
