Solactive has launched Solactive L&G gender in leadership UK index used as the basis for the L&G Future World Gender in leadership UK index fund, the first gender-oriented fund to exclusively focus on UK-listed companies.

This launch is the result of collaboration between Solactive and Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), which combines LGIM’s proprietary scoring system – the L&G Gender Diversity Score – with Solactive’s expertise in the development of thematic indices. With this new launch, Solactive further expands its range of gender-based indices by exclusively covering the UK equity market for the first time.
