A quiet week for ETF launches as we enter that period between Thanksgiving and Christmas when everything quietens down a little. US industry heavy weight Dimensional, now with USD70 billion in ETF assets since their relatively late arrival in the industry, brings us a Global Real Estate ETF and a US Large Cap Value ETF. Also in the US, ProShares launched its S&P Global Core Battery Metals ETF (ION), which they describe as the first ETF to invest only in companies mining battery metals.
Meanwhile, VanEck brought a bionic ETF to Europe with its ETF which it says represents technologies designed to enhance or restore functions of human body. From the bionic man, or indeed woman, we move onto DWS which has launched a new Xtrackers ETF based on emerging equity markets, with a focus on ESG characteristics and also aligned with the goals of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
