Two new UBS ETFs launched on Xetra

ETFs track companies in industrialised and developing countries

Two new exchange-traded index funds issued by UBS Global Asset Management have been tradable in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment since Wednesday. Both ETFs track the MSCI ACWI Risk Weighted Net Total Return Index. They differ in their unit class – the class I ETF is aimed primarily at institutional investors, the class A ETF at private investors.

The MSCI ACWI Risk Weighted Net Total Return Index comprises large and mid-cap companies from 24 industrialised and 21 developing countries. The weighting of the companies depends on their risk, meaning that low-volatile equities are given a greater weighting.

The product offering in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment currently comprises a total of 868 exchange-listed index funds, while average monthly trading volume stands at €16 billion.
