Amundi launches Euro Government Tilted Green Bond UCITS ETF


Amundi has announced the launch of a new Euro Government Tilted Green Bond UCITS ETF, writing that, based on a unique approach, this ETF enables investors to shift their core Euro government bonds building block towards a responsible exposure.

The Amundi Euro Government Tilted Green Bond UCITS ETF tracks the Bloomberg Euro Treasury Green Bond Tilted Index. It provides exposure to Euro Investment Grade Government bonds with a higher proportion of sovereign Green Bonds so they make up at least 30 per cent of the index. This means Amundi has classified the ETF under SFDR Article 8, the firm writes.

The Bloomberg Euro Treasury Green Bond Tilted Index aims to maintain the same risk profile, including duration and country allocation, as the parent index, with a low tracking error. It is well diversified with around 360 issues and 10 countries. This index profile allows the ETF to offer a broad exposure to a fixed income segment particularly in demand in the current economic environment, while contributing to finance the energy transition.

Arnaud Llinas, Head of ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta at Amundi, says: “Clients have asked for innovative solutions combining sovereign bond investments with an ESG stance and we believe this new ETF is a great addition to our product range and a concrete investment tool to finance the transition to a low carbon economy.”

Dave Gedeon, CEO, Bloomberg Index Services Limited, says: “The Bloomberg Euro Treasury Green Bond Tilted Index is a new index solution that we believe can be the standard for inclusion of ESG factors in treasuries. Ensuring we create indices that directly address concerns of the global investment community is always top of mind and so we are proud to license this new index to Amundi for their ETF.”

The Amundi Euro Government Tilted Green Bond UCITS ETF is the result of the transformation of the Amundi Govt Bond Euro Broad Investment Grade UCITS ETF DR and comes with an initial AuM of close to EUR500 million and ongoing charges at 0.14 per cent.
