New UBS ETF on Xetra offering access to emerging markets excluding China


A new ETF issued by UBS Asset Management is now tradable on Xetra and on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The firm writes that the UBS ETF (IE) MSCI Emerging Markets ex China Socially Responsible UCITS ETF allows investors to invest in a broadly diversified portfolio of large and mid-cap companies based in one of the 23 emerging markets excluding China. The benchmark index covers around 85 per cent of each country’s market capitalisation. The most represented countries are Taiwan, India and South Korea. The weighting of issuers is limited to a maximum of 5 per cent.

A best-in-class approach to ESG criteria is taken in the selection of companies. At the same time, companies must have a high environmental, social and governance balance as well as lower CO2 emissions compared to their competitors. Companies involved in controversial business activities will be excluded.

This is an accumulating share class in the base currency, the US dollar.
