Unicredit launches two new ETFs on Xetra


Unicredit has launched two new ETFs with a sustainability focus on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt – The UC Euro iSTOXX ESG-X Multi-Factor UCITS ETF and the UC Euro STOXX ESG-X Minimum Variance UCITS ETF.

The new funds allow investors to participate in the performance of companies from the EURO STOXX Index that meet sustainability criteria. 

The reference indexes use the ESG exclusion criteria of the data provider Sustainalytics, which are based on the principles of the United Nations Global Compact on human rights, labour rights, the environment, business ethics and anti-corruption.

In addition to the sustainability criteria, various factors are used to diversify the portfolio. The UC EURO iSTOXX ESG-X Multi-Factor UCITS ETF uses profitability, yield, leverage, value and low volatility, whereby the weighting is determined by a multifactorial optimisation process. The UC EU-RO STOXX ESG-X Minimum Variance UCITS ETF pursues the goal of minimum variance.

The returns of both ETFs are reinvested.
