Amundi launches global ESG ETF suite

Amundi has announced the launch of a comprehensive suite of Global ESG Sector ETFs.

The range covers most of the Global Industry Classification Standard market segments, including Communication Services, Consumer Discretionary, Consumer Staples, Financials, Health Care, Industrials, Information Technology, Materials, and Utilities.

This new range of ESG equity sector ETFs allows investors to better align their portfolios to the business cycle while respecting their responsible investment goals, the firm says. These ETFs come with limited tracking error, a 10 per cent uplift on the parent indices’ ESG scores and a 30 per cent cut in their carbon intensity on average. The S&P indices tracked by these ETFs allow investors to get exposure to large and mid-cap companies across developed countries and to incorporate exclusion criteria for controversial activities.

Arnaud Llinas, Head of ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta at Amundi, says: “Investors are increasingly looking for simple, transparent and cost-effective investment tools to switch their core allocation into ESG equivalents and for some, that core includes sectors. We’re delighted to launch the lowest-cost range of global ESG sector UCITS ETFs available in the market, with ongoing charges of 0.18 per cent. The range will gather more than EUR600 million euros in the upcoming days thanks to the support of a leading Dutch investor”.
