iShares launches four ETFs on Xetra offering access to strategy indices on MSCI World


iShares has launched four new equity index exchange-traded funds in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment on Xetra.

All four of the ETFs track the performance of stock corporations included in the MSCI World Index. Selection and weighting of the stocks differ depending on the selected strategy approach according to the company size, company value, momentum and earnings quality.
The quality-based strategy is used for the iShares MSCI World Quality Factor UCITS ETF. The selection of stock corporations is based on three factors intended to reflect the earnings quality: dividend yields, low debt and stable earnings power. The reference index currently contains 301 companies from 23 industrialised nations.
The iShares MSCI World Momentum Factor UCITS ETF is based on the momentum strategy. Momentum measures the strength of a share price movement. This approach selects companies with high momentum. These are currently 349 companies from 23 industrialised nations.
The iShares MSCI World Value Factor UCITS ETF provides investors with access to the value-based investment strategy. With this strategy, stock corporations are selected on the basis of three factors: price-earnings ratio, price-to-book ratio, ratio of company value to operating income (cash flow). The reference index currently contains 300 stock corporations from 23 industrialised nations.
The iShares MSCI World Size Factor UCITS ETF contains equally weighted mid-cap stock corporations selected from the MSCI World Index. These are currently 885 stock corporations from 23 industrialised nations.
