BNP Paribas AM adds to sustainable fixed income ETF range


BNP Paribas Asset Management (BNPP AM) has expanded its indexed fund range with the launch of three new ETFs linked to sustainable fixed income indices.

The BNP Paribas Easy EUR High Yield SRI Fossil Free UCITS ETF replicates an index that selects the top-rated euro high yield corporate issuers, while the BNP Paribas Easy JPM ESG EMBI Global Diversified Composite UCITS ETF invests in emerging market sovereign and quasi-sovereign bonds issued in US dollars, and the BNP Paribas Easy JPM ESG EMU Government Bond IG 3-5 Year UCITS ETF tracks an index of Eurozone government bonds denominated in euros, with maturities of three to five years.

Index constituents are selected on the basis of extra financial criteria, excluding those issuers who fail to comply with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and, depending on the index, are involved in controversial areas such as civilian firearms, military weapons, tobacco or fossil fuels.

BNPP AM’s range of fixed income ETFs consists of six funds that replicate SRI[2] or ESG indices. With a responsible investment approach at the heart of its strategies, BNPP AM manages EUR10.1 billion in SRI and ESG index funds, including EUR2.5 billion in fixed income.

Isabelle Bourcier, Head of Quantitative & Index Management at BNP Paribas Asset Management, says: “These fund launches are part of a dual approach of developing our ESG offering and our fixed income index range. We are maintaining the momentum within our responsible offering, in line with the expectations of our institutional and retail clients.”
