Commodities and Emerging Market Bonds:
· UBS ETFs plc – CMCI ex-Agriculture SF UCITS ETF
· UBS ETF (LU) Barclays USD Emerging Markets Sovereign hedged GBP UCITS ETF
· UBS ETF (LU) Barclays USD Emerging Markets Sovereign hedged EUR UCITS ETF
Listed on London Stock Exchange, the UBS ETFs plc – CMCI ex-Agriculture SF UCITS ETF offers investors the opportunity to invest in a comprehensive broad commodities index while excluding any investments in soft commodities or livestock.
This new ETF tracks the UBS Bloomberg CMCI Ex-Agriculture Ex-Livestock TR index which is diversified across a broad maturity spectrum: the index is positioned across the entire liquid part of the futures curve. This innovative feature aims to mitigate the effects of negative roll yield and maximize the tracking of the spot commodity prices. Additionally, small portions of the underlying futures are rolled daily in order to avoid potential problems associated with the fixed roll dates of traditional indices. This new commodities ETF is also available with embedded currency hedging to Swiss Francs and Euros.
Andrew Walsh, Head of UBS ETFs Sales UK & Ireland, said: “This new commodities ETF tracks a more advanced 2nd generation underlying index and offers investors an opportunity to access broad commodities but which excludes those components which are integral parts of the food production chain such as wheat, corn, sugar, cattle et al. In this respect, such a product will also likely appeal to investors who take into account ESG considerations in their investment decision making process.”
In addition, the UBS ETF (LU) Barclays USD Emerging Markets Sovereign hedged GBP UCITS ETF and the UBS ETF (LU) Barclays USD Emerging Markets Sovereign hedged EUR UCITS ETF (listed in Germany and other European stock exchanges) offer investors the opportunity to invest in government and quasi-government bonds from more than 60 emerging market countries with the added benefit of currency-hedging in British Pounds and Euros respectively. The ETFs focuses on both investment-grade and non-investment-grade securities.
