iShares lists French equity ETF on Xetra


BlackRock has expanded its single country equity range by launching the iShares MSCI France UCITS ETF on Deutsche Borse’s Xetra.

The new fund aims to provide exposure to approximately 85 per cent of the equity universe in France and consists of large and mid-cap companies.
The fund is fully replicating and physically backed, purchasing and holding all 73 constituents of the underlying index.
Single country funds continue to gain in popularity as investors use them to tilt portfolio exposure to specific countries and regions. With this launch, iShares now offers eight single European country exposures including funds tracking the four largest weightings within the MSCI Europe index: UK, France, Germany and Switzerland.
Tom Fekete, head of product development for iShares in EMEA says: “Investors are increasing their use of ETFs as they look to express views on specific regions, countries and sectors. This trend has been noticeable across various exposures globally.
“The launch of the iShares MSCI France UCITS ETF offers investors access to the French equity market in a simple, low cost way. Combined with our broad and diverse European equity suite, clients have the opportunity to express tactical views on some of the largest countries in Europe quickly and effectively.”
The iShares MSCI France UCITS ETF has a total expense ratio of 0.25 per cent.
