THE SATRIX MSCI EMERGING MARKETS ESG ENHANCED ETF

ABOUT THE INDEX
INDEX TOP 10 HOLDINGS
The performance is shown in US dollars and South African rands. When investing South African rands to access exposure to a US dollar based index, investors are also exposed to exchange rate risk. This means that your performance will be positively affected if the rand weakens against the dollar, and negatively affected if the rand strengthens.
