NYSE Euronext is pleased to announce that …
iShares, the Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) arm of Barclays Global Investors today has listed seven new Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) on the Amsterdam market of NYSE Euronext. Trading began in five accumulating versions of iShares largest and most successful equity-based ETFs, that reinvest dividend income and two government bond ETFs.
The NYSE Euronext ETF segment continues to grow and is very successful both on its European and US markets. In Europe, NYSE Euronext now has 487 listings of 439 ETFs based on more than 265 indices.
Scott Ebner, Senior Vice President, European Exchange Traded Products at NYSE Euronext said: “We are very happy to include these new iShares to our ETF segment. The fast growth of the segment clearly indicates the popularity of ETFs amongst European issuers and investors. So far this year, already 97 ETFs have been listed on NYSE Euronext European markets.”
The accumulating funds are based on five of iShares’ most successful equity-based ETFs, that pay out dividend income to investors on a periodic basis. By contrast, the accumulating funds will automatically reinvest any dividend income into the fund, rather than paying it to investors. The newly listed accumulating funds are:
• iShares MSCI Emerging Markets (Acc) – ISIN IE00B4L5YC18, Trading Symbol IEMA
• iShares S&P 500 (Acc) – ISIN IE00B4L5ZD99, Trading Symbol IACC
• iShares MSCI World (Acc) – ISIN IE00B4L5Y983, Trading Symbol IWDA
• iShares MSCI Europe (Acc) – ISIN IE00B4K48X80, Trading Symbol IMAE
• iShares MSCI Japan (Acc) – ISIN IE00B4L5YX21, Trading Symbol IJPA
The new fixed income products are:
• iShares Barclays Euro Government Bond 10 – 15 (ISIN IE00B4WXJH41, Trading Symbol IEGZ) which tracks the Barclays Capital Euro Government Bond 10 – 15-year term index and offers exposure to the performance of 10 – 15 year maturity bonds issued by EMU member states.
• iShares Barclays Euro Government Bond 5 – 7 (ISIN IE00B4WXJG34, Trading Symbol IEGY) which tracks the Barclays Capital Euro Government Bond 5 – 7-year term index and offers exposure to the performance of 10 year maturity bonds issued by EMU member states with a remaining maturity of 5 – 7 years.
