UBS offers a new smart beta ETF tracking the performance of European companies selected by several factors to extract higher risk premiums.
19 January 2018. FRANKFURT (Börse Frankfurt). UBS expands the ETF offering on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt.

The three new equity index ETFs enable investors to participate in the performance of companies that meet strict sustainability criteria either in Japan, the US or worldwide. The reference indices comprise exclusively companies with a particularly high rating in the areas of environmental protection, social responsibility and governance (ESG) compared to their peers.

The new bond ETF gives investors access to investment grade fixed-income corporate bonds with an MSCI ESG rating of BBB or higher, denominated in US dollars. The reference index comprises bonds from companies in the industrial, utilities and finance sectors that must meet high criteria in environmental impact and sustainability.

All four ETFs minimise the exchange rate risk between foreign currency and the euro.

The product offering in Xetra currently comprises a total of 1,211 exchange traded funds. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around 11 billion euro, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
