Karen Wallace: Hi, I'm Karen Wallace for Morningstar. When people think of ESG risk, they tend to think of natural-resources strategies like miners or oil drillers that have a high environmental impact as well as social and governance issues relating to community relations, health, and safety. And they're not wrong. Those types of issues do have high ESG risk. But as my colleague Dan Lefkovitz from Morningstar Indexes recently found, there are other types of strategies that also court higher ESG risks. Some of them are really surprising.

Dan, thanks for being here to discuss this.
