Amundi ETF has expanded its Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) ETF range with the launch of Amundi Index MSCI Emerging Markets SRI – UCITS ETF DR.
With ongoing charges of only 0.25 per cent, this is the most competitive ETF on the European market tracking the MSCI Emerging Markets SRI index.
Investors are increasingly taking account of ESG considerations in their portfolio allocation decisions, and there is a rising appetite for ready-to-use responsible investment solutions, which also minimise the level of tracking error.
This launch adds to Amundi ETF’s SRI range, which already includes three equity ETFs exposed to the MSCI Europe SRI, MSCI USA SRI and MSCI World SRI indices, and two fixed income ETFs tracking Euro and US corporate bond SRI indices.
Fannie Wurtz, Managing Director, Amundi ETF, Indexing and Smart Beta, says: “This new listing follows on from Amundi’s ambitious three-year ESG action plan announced last October and demonstrates our commitment to meet investors’ rising demand for ESG passive solutions, at competitive pricing. We will also continue to leverage Amundi’s internal research and analysis capabilities to build customised ESG solutions hand-in-hand with investors.”
