Sustainability and ESG investing dominated ETF launches this week. Invesco expanded its thematic environmental suite by listing the Invesco MSCI Green Building ETF focusing on the entire green building ecosystem, and BlackRock debuted two Paris Aligned iShares UCITS ETFS designed to capture opportunities arising from the transition to a lower carbon economy. Amundi also added fixed income exposure to its Climate Paris Aligned ETF range with the Amundi iCPR Euro Corp Climate Paris Aligned PAB – UCITS ETF DR. Digital assets also featured again this week with WisdomTree debuting the WisdomTree Ethereum ETP (ETHW) on Borse Xetra and Six, a low priced physically-backed ether ETP. Elsewhere investors turned their attention to Asia as Qontigo licensed the EURO STOXX 50 Index to KBSTAR ETF to serve as underlying for an ETF listed on the Korea exchange. Finally, FinEx launched the Fallen Angels ETF, allowing investors to capture risk premium in USD bonds that have recently been downgraded from investment grade to high yield while belonging to the relatively attractive BB+ to BB- rating segment.
