Sixteen new exchange-listed equity index funds issued by BNP Paribas Easy have been tradable via Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Wednesday.
Five of these new BNP Paribas Easy ETFs enable investors to participate in the performance of listed companies domiciled in Europe or the US which are selected based on one of the following criteria: low volatility, quality, momentum or value.
A further ten track regional indices from the MSCI index family. Companies involved in the production of cluster bombs, mines, chemical and biological weapons and weapons using enriched uranium are excluded from the selection.
Moreover, investors seeking sustainable ETFs have the opportunity of participating in the performance of the BNP Paribas Easy MSCI KLD 400 Social ETF, which is invested in 400 US companies that have a high ESG rating, i.e. that sustainably focus on the environment and corporate governance. These exclude companies whose products have negative social or environmental impacts as well as those involved in producing tobacco, alcohol or military weapons.
The product offering in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment currently comprises a total of 1,148 exchange traded funds. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around €15 billion, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
