HANetf has registered 19 ETFs in Spain



European white labelling firm HANetf has registered 19 of its ETFs in Spain. The firm writes that this is in addition to the existing 16 ETCs that are already passported into Spain, including The Royal Mint Responsibly Sourced Physical Gold ETC (RMAU) and SparkChange Physical Carbon EUA ETC (CO2).

HANetf reports that it has received increasing demand among Spanish investors for ETFs. The firm writes that the new registrations in Spain include several first-of-their-kind funds, including:


·       World’s first EV Charging ETF: Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure UCITS ETF (ELEC)


·       Europe’s first Medical Cannabis ETF: The Medical Cannabis and Wellness UCITS ETF (CBDX)


·       Europe’s first Space ETF: Procure Space UCITS ETF (YODA)


·       Europe’s first Solar ETF: Solar Energy UCITS ETF (TANN)


·       Europe’s first Metaverse ETF: ETC Group Global Metaverse UCITS ETF (METR)


Also being registered is EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce UCITS ETF (EMQQ), which provides exposure to the growth of online consumption in the developing world.


The firm writes that over half of the new registrations in Spain are SFDR Article 8 approved. In May, the HANS-GINS Tech Megatrend Equal Weight UCITS ETF (ITEK) achieved Article 8 SFDR status, owing to its objective to have a positive impact on the environment and society. Spanish investors will therefore be able to access disruptive technology companies with the peace of mind that the fund benefits from best-in-class screening and promotion of sustainable investment characteristics, the firm says.


In addition to this, environmentally conscious investors in Spain will gain access to the firm’s iClima Global Decarbonisation Enablers UCITS ETF (CLMA), which is Article 9 under SFDR regulations, demonstrating that the companies in its portfolio directly enable CO2 avoidance.


Hector McNeil, Co-CEO of HANetf, comments: “We are thrilled to register 19 of our ETFs in Spain, a number we hope to see continue to grow. Spanish investors increasingly want access to thematic ETFs, and HANetf is well placed to satisfy this demand. Spain is a vital and growing market that no pan-European ETF issuer can afford to ignore.”
