The three ESG-oriented equity funds will be sub-advised by Newton.


BNY Mellon Investment Management has registered three actively managed exchange-traded funds with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The three active ETFs all focus on meeting sustainability objectives.

The three — BNY Mellon Sustainable US Equity ETF, BNY Mellon Sustainable International Equity ETF and BNY Mellon Sustainable Global Emerging Markets ETF — are sub-advised by Newton, a leading equity and multi-asset manager with more than four decades of sustainable and responsible investing experience.

In its filing, BNY Mellon proposed that the registration become effective 75 days after filing.
