Overview

Description

The Calvert Global Diversity Research Index (CALGDI) is composed of companies that operate their businesses in a manner that is consistent with the Calvert Principles for Responsible Investment and are selected from the combination of (i) the common stocks of the 1,000 largest publicly traded U.S. companies by market capitalization, (ii) the common stocks of 1,000 large publicly traded companies in developed markets, excluding the U.S., and (iii) up to the 1,000 largest equity securities by market capitalization that are (a) listed on certain global stock exchanges and (b) issued by publicly traded companies that are located in or tied economically to countries that Calvert has classified as emerging markets. As described in the Index Methodology and as determined by Calvert, Index components must meet certain criteria relating to leadership in having a diverse workforce and an equal and inclusive work culture, or demonstrate significant improvement in diversity practices. The Index is reviewed at least annually and rebalanced quarterly.
 

Historical Returns (%) as of Sep 30, 2021

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance is for the stated time period only; due to market volatility, the Fund’s current performance may be lower or higher than quoted. Returns are historical and are calculated by determining the percentage change in net asset value (NAV) with all distributions reinvested. Returns for other classes of shares offered by the Fund are different. Performance less than or equal to one year is cumulative.
