An Exclusive Partnership

Democracy Investments holds an exclusive license agreement with the publisher of "The Economist," The Economist Group, LTD, for the use of their Democracy Index for financial products globally.

In our view, the Economist’s Democracy Index is the most objective and transparent measure of democracy in existence.

A Democracy Portfolio Weighting

We use The Economist’s Democracy Index as an overlay to create an index that is the product of both market capitalization and democracy weightings.

New Democracy Weighted Index

Our proprietary methodology results in a new democracy weighted index that aligns the portfolio with country democracy scores, resulting in higher allocations in democratic countries and lower in authoritarian regimes.

In short, our product is a way for investors to feel good about investing in democracy and values such as freedom of speech, fair elections and human rights, while enjoying similar returns to a typical international equity portfolio.
