Amundi launches the first EUR Aggregate SRI ETF
Thursday 16 July 2020
London – 16th July 2020 – Amundi announces the expansion of its Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) ETF range with the launch of AMUNDI INDEX EURO AGG SRI UCITS ETF DR - EUR, which today lists on Euronext Paris. As the first EUR Aggregate SRI ETF in the market, this fund is offered at a competitive price of 0.16% OGC1.
As interest in ESG investing grows, demand for simple, transparent, off-the-shelf responsible investment solutions, is increasing. This is particularly true in the Fixed Income space, where there is still room for innovation.
AMUNDI INDEX EURO AGG SRI UCITS ETF DR - EUR provides investors with an innovative and sustainable euro-denominated fixed income investment solution covering both government and corporate bond markets. Based on a customised SRI methodology, this ETF implements a systematic negative screening while maintaining a broad market exposure resulting in a tracking error under 1%.
AMUNDI INDEX EURO AGG SRI UCITS ETF DR - EUR adds to Amundi ETF’s existing SRI range that comprises three fixed income ETFs offering exposure to Euro Corporate SRI, Euro Corporate SRI 0-3 and US Corporate SRI indices.
This new listing demonstrates our commitment to meeting investors’ increasing demand for ESG passive solutions. The Euro Aggregate exposure is an essential building block that strengthens our existing SRI range, offering investors the opportunity to build a diversified responsible investing portfolio tailored to their individual objectives.
