Fidelity International launches smart beta ETFs


Fidelity has launched two exchange traded funds (ETFs) on Deutsche Borse’s Xetra and the London Stock Exchange.

The two ETFs are the first Fidelity International has issued in Europe and the first smart beta ETFs they have listed globally.
The Fidelity Global Quality Income UCITS ETF tracks the performance of the Fidelity Global Quality Income Index and offers investors access to the performance of global quality companies.
The Fidelity US Quality Income UCITS ETF offers exposure to the US quality companies in the Fidelity US Quality Income Index. It is available in two forms: distributing and accumulating.
Nick King, head of ETFs at Fidelity International, says: “Fidelity International is focused on providing world class investment solutions. Demand for smart beta strategies has been growing in recent years and is expected to continue to accelerate as investors look for competitively priced, differentiated products which provide a particular investment outcome. This is an area we believe our proven research capabilities and expertise can add value and increased choice for our clients.
“Our first smart beta ETFs will track Fidelity-branded indices which leverage our experience in security analysis and portfolio construction. By combining our active investment expertise with the systematic aspects of passive investing, we believe we can offer a truly differentiated product.”
Pietro Poletto, global head of fixed income products at London Stock Exchange Group says: “We are delighted that Fidelity has become the latest ETF issuer to list products in London, responding to the increasingly strong demand from European investors. London Stock Exchange is a leading ETF trading venue in Europe and working with market participants, we hope to continue to build on this position by encouraging new issuers and products to market.”
