First birthday for WisdomTree’s European UCITS ETF platform


ETF provider, WisdomTree Europe, is celebrating the first birthday of the launch of its European UCITS ETFs platform with assets under management having grown by more than 340 per cent. 

In what the firm describes as ‘an industrious year of accomplishments’, WisdomTree Europe has listed products on five major exchanges across Europe and deepened its distribution capabilities through hires in sales, product development, operations and capital markets.  
WisdomTree Europe has launched its unique range of smart beta WisdomTree UCITS ETFs across the UK, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. Most of these ETFs are dividend-weighted, high-yield strategies that may be beneficial from a portfolio construction perspective in today’s low interest rate environment.  The UCITS ETFs range also includes a number of currency-hedged share classes, based on WisdomTree’s US-listed strategies.
The company also continues to grow the Boost ETP product range, offering differentiated short and leverage products in equities, fixed income, currencies and commodities. During the course of the year, the firm claims that Boost has grown to achieve the top value-traded (turnover) market share in short and leveraged exchange-traded notes on Borsa Italiana and in Europe AUM and trading volumes in Boost products are rising faster than any other European short and leverage provider.
