ETF Securities has launched six exchange traded funds on Deutsche Börse’s Xetra trading platform.

ETF Securities has launched six exchange traded funds on Deutsche Börse’s Xetra trading platform.

The ETFs are an expansion to the current exchange traded commodity offering, allowing investors to compliment their direct commodity investments with indirect exposure to the commodity market.

The ETF Securities product range offers investors access to equities in the following commodity sectors: alternative energy sources, water, nuclear energy and agriculture.

Rainer Riess, managing director of Deutsche Börse’s cash market development department, says: ‘We welcome ETF Securities as the twelfth ETF provider on Xetra, Europe’s leading ETF trading platform in terms of turnover. We embrace the issuer’s decision to expand its Xetra-traded product range, comprising more than 100 exchange-traded commodities, to include exchange-traded funds.’

For the first time, ETFs based on the US equity indices Russell 1000 and Russell 2000 are tradable on Xetra.

Both indices are considered to be comprehensive and balanced benchmarks for large and small listed companies from the US.

The DAXglobal Alternative Energy Index tracks the performance of the 15 largest and most liquid alternative energy companies around the world. The index allocates the five segments – wind, solar, ethanol, natural gas and geothermal power/hydropower/batteries – an equal weighting and contains three companies from each segment.

The WNA Nuclear Energy Index, the official index of the World Nuclear Association, is a benchmark for companies from the international nuclear industry. These include: power station construction, reactors, nuclear energy generation, fuels as well as technology, equipment and services.

The Janney Global Water Index is the benchmark for water supply companies or technology providers for those companies. Both segments have an equal weighting in the index.

The S-Network ITG Agriculture Index contains companies from the international agricultural industry. The methodology of the index ensures it contains positions from various segments of the international agricultural industry, including seeds, chemicals and fertilisers, equipment, agricultural goods and livestock.

Until 31 January 2009, no management fees will be charged for these ETFs. After that date, the fees will range between 0.35 and 0.65 per cent.

The product offering on Xetra in the XTF segment currently comprises 377 exchange traded index funds, the largest offering of all European stock exchanges, and the average monthly trading volume is more than EUR10bn.
