Deutsche Börse trades exchange-traded notes on Xetra


Deutsche Börse is expanding its product range on Xetra by giving investors the opportunity to invest in exchange-traded notes.

The first two ETNs were issued by Barclays Capital under the brand name iPath.

They track the volatility indices S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures Index TR and S&P 500 VIX Mid-Term Futures Index TR and enable investors to participate in the development of the implied volatility of the S&P 500 Index.

The launch of iPath ETNs on Xetra is also the first time they have been tradable in Europe.

“We are happy to be able to offer investors another product innovation in cooperation with Barclays Capital,” says Rainer Riess, managing director of Xetra market development at Deutsche Börse. “The new iPath ETNs enable investors to make cost-efficient investments in a new asset class as well as further diversify their portfolios.”

Uwe Becker, head of investor solutions Europe at Barclays Capital, adds: “The iPath VIX products demonstrate the characteristics which are vital for the success of any benchmark instrument. They are straightforward to understand, transparent and through our ETN platform, are easy to access for a broad range of investors to trade. They have removed the need for investors to trade volatility through variance swaps or futures.”

Parallel to the start of ETN trading on Xetra, Deutsche Börse is combining the exchange-traded commodity and ETN asset classes into the new product class exchange-traded products.

Deutsche Börse’s ETF and ETP product range currently comprises 543 ETFs, 141 ETCs and two ETNs.
