Investors interested in socially responsible investing (SRI) may consider ESGA as a potential option for gaining exposure to companies with strong ESG practices in the US. However, it is important to note that ESG investing may not necessarily lead to outperformance or guarantee a positive social or environmental impact. As with any investment, investors should conduct thorough research and consider their investment goals, risk tolerance, and time horizon before making any investment decisions.
