UBS launches four sustainable ETFs


UBS Global Asset Management has issued four new ETFs on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt. The three new equity index ETFs are designed to offer access to the performance of companies that meet strict sustainability criteria either in Japan, the US or worldwide.

The firm writes that the reference indices comprise exclusively companies with a particularly high rating in the areas of environmental protection, social responsibility and governance (ESG) compared to their peers.

The new bond ETF gives investors access to investment grade fixed-income corporate bonds with an MSCI ESG rating of BBB or higher, denominated in US dollars. The reference index comprises bonds from companies in the industrial, utilities and finance sectors that must meet high criteria in environmental impact and sustainability. All four ETFs are designed to minimise the exchange rate risk between foreign currency and the euro.

The UBS ETF – MSCI Japan Socially Responsible UCITS ETF (Hedged to EUR) A-acc has ongoing charges of 0.50 per cent; the UBS ETF – MSCI USA Socially Responsible UCITS ETF (Hedged to EUR) A-dis has ongoing charges of 0.43 per cent; the UBS (Irl) ETF plc – MSCI ACWI Socially Responsible UCITS ETF (Hedged to EUR) A-acc has an ongoing charge of 48 per cent and the UBS ETF – Bloomberg Barclays MSCI US Liquid Corporates Sustainable UCITS ETF (Hedged to EUR) A-acc has an ongoing charge of  0.25 per cent.
