Lyxor launches first gender equality ETF on Xetra


The Lyxor Global Gender Equality (DR) UCITS ETF – Monthly Hedged to EUR Equity index ETF has been launched on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt.

The ETF is designed to give investors access to companies where gender equality plays a particularly important role in their corporate policy.
The reference index comprises 150 equally weighted companies from around the world that score highly for gender equality, based on Equileap’s 19 defined criteria.
Companies involved with weapons, gambling or tobacco, as well as those on the Norwegian Council on Ethics list are excluded. This ETF unit class uses a monthly hedging strategy to hedge the exchange rate risk between the US dollar and the euro.
Ongoing charges are 0.30 per cent and the distribution policy is accumulating. The ETF is based on the Solactive Equileap Global Gender Equality Net Total Return Index.
