New ETFs: European Equity Yield-optimized, Fixed-income Fallen Angels, Sustainable Emerging Markets Euities
Three specialized investment concepts are tradable now: an Equity ETF with European companies showing low yield volatility, an ETF with downgraded bonds, an ETF tracking emerging markets with good ESG ratings.
The db x-trackers MSCI EMU Minimum Volatility UCITS ETF (DR) offers investors access to large and mid-cap stock corporations from industrialised countries in the euro zone. The reference index comprises companies with the least forecast return volatility. The forecast volatility is calculated using historical market data such as share price and trading volume, financial key figures (ratio of dividends to price, price-to-book ratio, forecast earnings growth), sector and total shareholder return. Furthermore, minimum and maximum constituent, country and sector weights are used.
The PowerShares US High Yield Fallen Angels UCITS ETF enables investors to participate in the performance of US-dollar-denominated bonds known as "fallen angels" issued by companies based in the USA or Canada. These are bonds that have been downgraded from an investment-grade rating or were classified as high-yield in the past and, following an upgrade to investment-grade rating, were downgraded again. The bonds must have a residual maturity of at least one year. The weight in the index is based on a time factor, i.e. bonds that have only recently become fallen angels have a higher weight.
The BNP Paribas Easy MSCI Emerging Markets SRI enables investors to participate in the performance of large and mid-cap stock corporations from 23 emerging markets, such as Colombia, Malaysia and Mexico. The companies in the reference index have a high ESG rating based on environmental and social factors and the type of corporate governance. Companies involved in, for example, the production of tobacco, alcohol or military weapons, are excluded.
The product offering on Xetra currently comprises a total of 1,152 exchange traded funds, making it the largest offering of all European stock exchanges. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around €15 billion, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
