    Vanguard Puts Gun Stocks In ESG Index

    We all make mistakes, even investment fund giants, as Vanguard has admitted it placed gun stocks in a gun-free index. Oops Daisy As reported by Bloomberg, Vanguard bought stock in gun manufacturer Sturm Ruger & Co and mistakenly placed it in their ESG index for more than a month, which typically does not include stocks from companies that sell guns or ammunition. Index Exposure Vanguard developed the Vanguard US ESG Stock ETF to help facilitate investing in companies that meet the criteria for ESG investing, which is a way for investors to buy shares in companies or funds that meet certain ethical benchmarks. Their fund is tied to the FTSE Russell’s US All Cap Choice index, which, in theory, does not include gun manufacturers or non-renewable energy companies. The Russell index was rebalanced in June, and accidently included 11 stocks that don’t qualify as ESG. In addition to 219 shares of Sturm Ruger worth about $9,000, the index also included shares in non-ESG companies such as private prison operator Geo Group Inc. and defense contractor Halliburton Co. Vanguard spokesman Freddy Martino apologized to shareholders for the error. Passive Aggressive Index funds, more or less created by Vanguard founder Jack Bogle, are so popular that they may one day control the stock market. ESG index funds will likely continue to explode in popularity as well, as Wall Street scrambles to appease millennial investors. But, as Vanguard’s mishap shows, passive investing continues to have holes when it comes to meeting the complexities of ESG that might take a human being at the wheel to maneuver. More good news for money managers. -Michael Tedder Photo: Joshua Roberts / RUETERS

    Vanguard Put Gun Stocks in a Gun-Free Fund After Index Error

    (Bloomberg) -- Vanguard Group Inc.’s biggest sustainable exchange-traded fund bought shares of gun maker Sturm Ruger & Co. Inc. and held them for more than a month, mimicking an error in the benchmark it tracks.Vanguard US ESG Stock ETF says it tracks an index that doesn’t include weapons manufacturers, along with other companies that socially responsible investors prefer to avoid. Though the Sturm Ruger buy was temporary and small -- 219 shares worth about $9,000 -- it raises questions about the rapid growth of socially responsible investing in general and index strategies in particular.In September, Vanguard launched its ESGV fund, pegged to FTSE Russell’s US All Cap Choice index, which excludes non-renewable energy, weapons manufacturers and so-called vice products. With a cost of just $1.20 per $1,000 invested, the fund quickly attracted about $560 million, making it the 8th-largest ESG-focused ETF.In June, when FTSE Russell rebalanced the index, it erroneously included 11 stocks in the benchmark, including Sturm Ruger, Vanguard said. FTSE Russell said the stocks were “inadvertently included” and clients were told as soon as it fixed the mistake.“Though the exposure to these holdings was very modest, we regret that the error occurred and apologize to shareholders,” Vanguard spokesman Freddy Martino said in a statement to Bloomberg. Vanguard’s fund sold the shares Aug. 5, and Vanguard is considering adding its own additional controls to prevent future errors.In a letter the firm sent to investors on Monday, Vanguard also disclosed that it had bought shares of private prison operator Geo Group Inc. and defense contractor Halliburton Co. for the U.S. ESG fund, and erroneously included 20 additional stocks in its ESG International Stock ETF.“Vanguard’s objective in managing index funds is to track the index provided by our index partners; FTSE is instituting additional controls in their process,” Vanguard spokeswoman Dana Grosser said in an emailed statement. “Vanguard continuously works to understand index provider policies, procedures and controls; this is part of our evaluation process when partnering with an index provider and part of our ongoing diligence of our index-provider partners.”Fund analysts say index providers make mistakes like this on occasion, but ESG investors are particularly sensitive to what their funds do and don’t hold. Ben Johnson, head of passive strategy research for fund-tracker Morningstar Inc., said he’d never seen an indexer veer so far from its mandate. “It is very much material, diametrically opposed to the objective of the index and the desires of investors in the fund,” he said.Index funds typically have some leeway to diverge from their underlying benchmarks, wiggle room a manager might use to address tactical issues like liquidity or availability. Investors, though, typically use passive funds in order to keep human discretion to a minimum.People interested in socially responsible portfolios, may need to be a little more hands-on, said Shaheen Contractor, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence who first discovered the gun stocks in the Vanguard fund. “There is need to look under the hood for all ESG funds.”(Updates with additional holdings in sixth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Emily Chasan in New York at echasan1@bloomberg.net;Annie Massa in New York at amassa12@bloomberg.net;Rachel Evans in New York at revans43@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Janet Paskin at jpaskin@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
