For our fossil fuel free global equity strategies, the strategies will not invest in issuers or investment vehicles that are directly involved in extracting, processing or transporting coal, oil, or natural gas, or, for some strategies, issuers included in the Carbon Underground 200. Companies that fall within these categories are eliminated from the strategy's investment universe.
Our Access Capital Community Investment strategy, available in the United States, pursues impactful investments that help build stronger communities through their support of low-and moderate income home buyers, affordable rental housing units, small business administration loans and economic development projects. Similarly, the RBC Impact Bond strategy invests in securities with the intention of generating net-positive social and environmental impacts that produce competitive financial returns.
Lastly, RBC Vision Canadian Equity Women’s Leadership strategy, available in Canada, was launched in 2018 and focuses on companies domiciled in Canada that have demonstrated commitment to gender diversity as part of their approach to corporate governance. As a result, eligible companies must either have three female directors on their board, a combination of two female directors and at least one woman in an executive leadership position, or have 30% of its board represented by female directors.
