First ETF covering Iberian region listed on NYSE Euronext Lisbon


NYSE Euronext has listed the ESAF exchange-traded fund on the NYSE Euronext Iberian index.

The ESAF NYSE Euronext Iberian ETF offers both retail and institutional investors exposure to the returns of 30 Portuguese and Spanish blue chip companies.
“The launch of an ETF on the NYSE Euronext Iberian Index is proof of the value of this benchmark, while incrementing its quality as a measurer of the performance of the Iberian market,” says Miguel Geraldes, head of cash market and listing, NYSE Euronext Lisbon. “As a leading Iberian institution, ESAF will play a key role in the expected growth of ETF use in the region.”

“The launch of this ETF is the recognition of the growing importance that this segment is gaining with the investors. It’s an additional challenge that just confirms innovation as being one of ESAF’s most important growth strategies,” says Pedro Arbués, investments manager at ESAF – Espírito Santo Activos Financeiros.

The NYSE Euronext Iberian Index consists of 30 stocks, the 20 most liquid companies listed on Bolsa de Madrid and the ten most liquid companies listed on Euronext Lisbon. The stocks are weighted according to their free float market capitalisation with a maximum of ten per cent per stock.
