Global ETF launches for 7th to 22th April


Global ETF launches did not slow down in the two weeks around the Easter holidays and the ETF Express trip to Miami.

This slew of launches features the key themes we have seen over the past year or so, with ESG and crypto dominating.

Commodities are also on the rise, with WisdomTree managing to combine ESG and metals with its launch of metals ETPs exposed to energy transition and battery themes.

The metaverse is also proving popular, with First Trust and Fidelity launching metaverse ETFs. First Trust describes the “Metaverse” as the next generation of the internet, which has the potential to allow creators to build the next chapter of human interaction through immersive experiences in three-dimensional virtual spaces.
