The first exchange-traded index fund issued by HSBC ETFS has begun trading on Xetra.
The first HSBC equity index fund tradable on Xetra, the HSBC FTSE 100 ETF, allows investors to participate in the performance of the 100 largest and best-performing companies based in the UK.
“By listing our ETF range in Germany, we are expanding our existing offering and thus meeting the increasing demand from institutional and private investors and from wealth management,” says Heiner Weber, member of the management board of HSBC Global Asset Management (Deutschland).
“Deutsche Börse welcomes HSBC as a new issuer on the first and largest ETF trading platform in Europe. We are delighted to be expanding the offering in our XTF segment to 720 products today thanks to HSBC,” says Rainer Riess (pictured), managing director at Deutsche Börse.
Six of the HSBC ETFs soon to be tradable on Xetra will enable investors to participate in the performance of companies from the following countries and regions of the MSCI index family: Brazil, Japan, US, Europe, emerging markets from the Far East and the pacific-ex Japan.
HSBC ETFs will also soon be tradable on Xetra on the S&P 500 and Euro Stoxx 50 indices. The HSBC ETF S&P 500 enables investors to track the performance of the S&P 500 Index, which comprises the 500 largest US stock corporations. The HSBC Euro Stoxx 50 ETF allows investment in the performance of the 50 largest companies from 12 euro zone countries.
