Invesco PowerShares has become the ninth active issuer of exchange traded-funds on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange after marking its debut in the German market with the listing of eight funds.

The eight ETFs, which have also been listed on the London Stock Exchange are the PowerShares Dynamic US Fund, PowerShares FTSE RAFI US 1000 Fund, PowerShares Global Clean Energy Fund, PowerShares Palisades Global Water Fund, PowerShares Global Listed Private Equity Fund, PowerShares Dynamic Europe Fund, PowerShares FTSE RAFI Europe Fund and PowerShares Dynamic Global Developed Markets Fund.

The PowerShares family of ETFs, which until this month were available only in North America, comprises three categories branded Intelligent Index, Intelligent Exposure and Intelligent Access. Intelligent Index ETFs are based on refined indices that identify the most promising companies with the most convincing growth or value attributes based on quantitative factors.

The products in the Intelligent Exposure range track FTSE RAFI indices, which aim to track a market in economic terms. Unlike traditional indices that weight equities according to their market capitalisation, PowerShares uses index concepts like those from California-based Research Associates that weight companies based on various measures of fundamental data.

PowerShares Capital Management, which managed more than 90 US and international ETFs with assets of nearly USD35bn at the end of October is part of the Invesco group, which also offers investment products through the AIM, AIM Trimark, Atlantic Trust, Invesco, Invesco Perpetual and WL Ross & Co. brands.

Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment currently contains a total of 274 exchange-traded funds, making it the largest offering of all European stock exchanges (London currently has 100). Together with an average monthly trading volume of over EUR9bn, Deutsche Börse says, this makes XTF segment Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
