NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fox Corporation (Nasdaq: FOXA, FOX) ("FOX" or "the Company") today announced that FTSE Russell removed the Company's common stock from its Gambling Business Activity Exclusion List. FTSE Russell's correction followed a challenge by the Company and a review that determined FOX's level of involvement in the betting industry falls below the equity ownership threshold for classification on the Gambling Business Activity Exclusion List.
FOX challenged the classification earlier this year when it caused the Company's stock to be removed from Vanguard ESG funds (ESGV, VSGX) created to invest in companies with strong environmental, social and governance records.
