Investors are gradually becoming aware of an emerging class of investment opportunities: LGBT-friendly investments. The equity performance of companies with LGBT-friendly policies can be successfully tracked via index or index-related products and show a demonstrably higher return on investment compared to the average index. In addition, participation in LGBT-friendly funds can be leveraged as positive branding in your marketing of other goods and services, provide access to LGBT-markets and contribute to creating a more inclusive corporate climate. LGBT-Friendly investment funds can also have a role in improving overall attitudes toward LGBT people in society and support the development of the next generation of entrepreneurs. OutPerform addresses the global trend of increased acceptance and proliferation of LGBT-friendly policies in corporations across all sectors and presents a way that leverages Nasdaq to serve current and new market participants by introducing a product that will grant direct exposure to the LGBT market segment.
