Amundi expands its range of cost-effective ESG ETF solutions


Amundi has launched two new ESG ETFs – one on Xetra and one on Euronext Paris.The Xetra-listed Amundi MSCI Emerging ESG Universal UCITS ETF has an OGC of 0.20 per cent, ans is designed to offer exposure to large-and mid-cap securities across 26 emerging countries. The fund tracks an index that is screened to remove exposure to thermal coal, controversial weapons, tobacco and ESG controversies; it then uses index re-weighting to increase exposure to companies with a robust and improving ESG.

The Amundi MSCI World Climate Paris Aligned PAB UCITS ETF, which has listed on Euronext Paris with an OGC from 0.25 per cent, completes the core Amundi climate ETF range which the company launched in June 2020. The Paris Aligned Benchmark (PAB) funds are intended to meet the needs of investors seeking to address climate change-related risks by reducing carbon intensity by 50 per cent compared to the parent index, along with additional activity exclusions. The fund’s index also comprises a 7 per cent year-on-year self-decarbonisation requirement to ensure it remains in line with the 2°C objective. 

Amundi’s responsible investment range of ETFs has been developed to make sustainable investing accessible to investors whatever their ESG integration requirements and accepted tracking error compared to the parent benchmarks. This approach acknowledges the need for investors to reflect their individual goals and values within their ESG allocations. 

Fannie Wurtz, Head of ETF, Indexing and Smart Beta at Amundi, says: “We are pleased to enhance our range of responsible ETFs, meeting growing demand from investors for sustainable ETFs to implement cost-effective ESG and climate-positive portfolios.”
