First Trust Global Portfolios launches First Trust Germany AlphaDEX UCITS ETF


First Trust Global Portfolios Limited (FTGP), a London-based ETF distributor and advisor, has launched the First Trust Germany AlphaDEX UCITS ETF on the Deutsche Boerse (FTGG GY). 

FTGG is based on the NASDAQ AlphaDEX Germany Index and objectively selects stocks from the NASDAQ Germany Index using the patented, rules-based AlphaDEX methodology. 

“We are delighted to launch the First Trust Germany AlphaDEX UCITS ETF,” says Derek Fulton, CEO of FTGP. “With this launch, our first listing on the Deutsche Boerse, we are bringing our proven AlphaDEX® merit-based stock selection methodology to Europe’s largest economy.” 
The AlphaDEX methodology is designed to use fundamental valuation factors to seek better risk-adjusted excess returns relative to traditional cap-weighted benchmarks. FTGP believes that, while different methods of indexing will have inherent limitations at different times, fundamental indexes have the potential to generate higher long-term returns, and often times reduce volatility, compared to similar cap-weighted indexes. 

With the addition of FTGG, First Trust Global Portfolios Limited now offers a total of seven AlphaDEX UCITS ETFs – four single country funds and three broad/regional funds.
