EasyETF launches four funds investing in BRIC countries


EasyETF has launched four exchange-traded funds investing in BRIC countries, bringing its range to 14 emerging market ETFs.

The company says that despite the recession, the BRIC region has on the whole continued to outperform most industrialised countries.

The four new ETFs, which are listed on Euronext Paris, are:

• EasyETF DJ Brazil 15: the Dow Jones Brazil 15 index includes the 15 largest, most liquid companies on the Brazilian stock exchange (Bovespa), representing the oil and gas, finance and commodity sectors. Stocks are selected on the basis of market capitalisation and liquidity criteria.
• EasyETF DJ Russia Titans 10: the Dow Jones Russia Titans 10 index measures the performance of the ten main RDRs (Russian depositary receipts) listed on the London Stock Exchange, selected on the basis of market capitalisation and liquidity criteria.
• EasyETF DJ India 15: the Dow Jones India 15 index represents the 15 largest companies listed on the Indian Stock Exchange, representing the oil and gas, financial services, technology, telecommunication, services, consumer goods, raw materials and utility sectors. 
• EasyETF DJ China 15: the Dow Jones China 15 index includes the 15 largest companies listed on the Chinese Stock Exchange, representing the financial, raw materials, telecommunications and oil and gas sectors. Although these companies are mainly active in China, their shares are quoted on the Hong Kong and American markets, thereby providing substantial liquidity.

Guillaume Dolisi, head of BNP Paribas EasyETF, says: “We were the first bank to launch ETFs investing in Africa and the Middle East, the ‘Next 11’ countries and the United Arab Emirates. In addition to its ten existing ETFs in the emerging markets, EasyETF now has four new ETFs for BRIC countries. With the four new ETFs, our emerging market range is particularly well suited to investors seeking to diversify their portfolio while exploiting long-term capital appreciation opportunities in high-growth markets.”

The EasyETF product range, the trademark of BNP Paribas, now includes 64 trackers of which 61 are listed on Euronext Paris, 18 on Deutsche Börse, two on the Swiss Stock Exchange and seven on Borsa Italiana and a listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange for a total of EUR3,658bn in assets under management.
