Amundi launches eight equity ETFs on LSE

RELATED TOPICS​

Amundi Group has introduced another series of eight equity exchange traded funds (ETFs) to the UK market.

 

Following the launches in May and June 2011, this third series brings the total number of Amundi ETF products traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) to 41.
 
The majority of this series extends the range through an emerging market focus based on MSCI indices:

Amundi ETF MSCI Brazil, Amundi ETF MSCI China and Amundi ETF MSCI India, offer investors exposure to indices composed of the leading stocks in the three respective countries. These ETFs are offered with competitive Total Expense Ratios (“TERs”) which compare well against the average TER for competitor products[ on the LSE: 0.55% vs 0.72%; 0.55% vs 0.70%; and 0.80% vs 0.84%, respectively.

Amundi ETF MSCI EM Asia, Amundi ETF MSCI EM Latin America, and Amundi ETF MSCI Eastern Europe Ex Russia offer exposure to key emerging regions across the globe. All three ETFs are offered with a TER of 0.45% compared to the average TER of 0.65%, 0.68% and 0.74% respectively for competitor products.

The Amundi ETF range also offers Amundi ETF MSCI Emerging Markets that seeks to replicate as closely as possible the performance of the flagship benchmark, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, whether the trend is rising or falling. With a TER of only 0.45% vs an average of 0.67% for similar competing products1, this ETF provides exposure to around 20 emerging countries covering approximately 85% of each country’s stockmarket capitalisation.

In addition, a European real estate investment theme is introduced through AMundi ETF Real Estate REIT IEIF which tracks as closely as possible the performance of the Euronext IEIF REIT Europe strategy index, whether the trend is rising or falling. This index includes around 25 liquid stocks of listed companies which have opted for a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) regime, i.e. tax-transparency with an obligation to distribute income. Exposure to this index is unprecedented on the LSE.

Valérie Baudson, Managing Director of Amundi ETF, says: “This latest series enhances our range of equity exposure on the LSE. We offer investors cost effective emerging market exposures, with low tracking error, reflecting the quality of our products. These launches are in line with our development objectives for the UK.”
