The following is from the exchange...
Ten exchange-traded index funds issued by UBS ETF SICAV are tradable in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment as of today. All ten are based on the MSCI index family. These equity indices are weighted according to free-float market capitalisation.
The ten new ETFs are based on five reference indices – two ETFs on each index. These exchange-traded index funds differ according to share class, with share class I ETFs primarily aimed at institutional investors and wealthy private customers.
In selecting the respective ETF, investors focus on the Global (UBS-ETF MSCI World Socially Responsible A/I), North American (UBS-ETF MSCI North America Socially Responsible A/I), Europe and the Middle East (UBS-ETF MSCI Europe & Middle East Socially Responsible A/I) or Pacific Region (UBS-ETF MSCI Pacific Socially Responsible A/I). A particular feature of these ETFs is that they take sustainability into account. Company selection considers economic and social aspects as well as corporate governance, in addition to the traditional aspects of liquidity and security.
The two ETFs on the MSCI Turkey Index (UBS-ETF MSCI Turkey A/I) give investors the opportunity to participate in the performance of Turkish equities which meet the MSCI criteria in terms of size, liquidity and free-float market capitalisation.
The product offering in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment currently comprises a total of 848 exchange-listed index funds, while average monthly trading volume stands at €14 billion.
