Social & Economic EmpowermentUCITS ETF
The CIRCA5000 Social & Economic Empowerment UCITS ETF (C5KE) aims to create equal social and economic opportunities for all. Inequalities transcend all aspects of society and the economy, and take many forms— from wealth inequality to gender and education, the negative impact of these inequalities is enormous. Boosting female employment rates alone could generate an additional $6 trillion in GDP (UN Women). C5KE seeks to invest in companies that are using their platforms to open up economic and social opportunities to underserved and undervalued populations. In turn, these companies will empower generations through enhanced access to services including education, financial services and technology. C5KE aims to deliver investment results corresponding to the impak CIRCA5000 Social & Economic Empowerment Impact Index.

CIRCA5000's strategy is to invest in companies that manufacture products, or offer the services that generate a positive environmental or social impact. For example, the homeowner who buys solar panels for their home is ultimately responsible for the positive impact generated and the company that manufactured them is the facilitator. Therefore, by investing in these companies, CIRCA5000 supports users to generate a positive impact, but we are of course, not responsible for it on our own.
Data is annual and based on the latest company reports, with some additional products and services estimates provided by Net Purpose.
