New ETF issuer PIMCO Source on Xetra


Two ETFs issued by PIMCO Source can be traded in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment for the first time. Both funds – The PIMCO European Advantage Government Bond Index Source ETF, and the PIMCO Euro Enhanced Short Maturity Source ETF – are tradable for the first time worldwide, and only on Xetra.


“We welcome new issuer PIMCO Source to Xetra and are delighted that PIMCO and Source have chosen a primary listing on Europe’s leading platform for exchange-traded index funds. Traders across Europe benefit from a highly liquid offering via our Xetra network. Today we are expanding our range with two innovative products, including, for the first time, an actively managed bond ETF,” says Rainer Riess, Managing Director of Xetra Market Development at Deutsche Börse.

Ted Hood, CEO of Source adds: “The new PIMCO Source ETFs have been developed to respond to the challenges posed by current market conditions and to capture fixed income opportunities as they arise. For Government bond investors, the PIMCO European Advantage Government Bond Index Source ETF, which seeks to provide the performance of PIMCO’s innovative GDP-weighted European Advantage Government Bond Index, avoids the bias to highly indebted countries that market cap indices deliver.”

The PIMCO European Advantage Government Bond Index Source ETF seeks to provide the performance of the PIMCO European Advantage Government Bond Index. The index is comprised of investment-grade, euro-denominated government bond securities in the Eurozone. Weighting within the index is based on gross domestic product, therefore avoiding overweighting in highly indebted countries.

With the PIMCO Euro Enhanced Short Maturity Source ETF, investors can invest for the first time in an actively managed, diversified portfolio of fixed-income securities with a maturity of up to a year. The investment objective is to exceed the performance of the money market. The securities are euro zone government bonds denominated in euros and issued or guaranteed by governments, their regional authorities, bodies or institutions. They may also include corporate bonds, mortgage-backed securities and other asset-backed securities.

The product offering in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment currently contains a total of 763 exchange-listed index funds, making it the largest offering of all European stock exchanges. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of 13 billion euros, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
