Paris, 7 April 2010 - Innovation is the driving force behind Amundi ETF's new listings, which consist of 18 unprecedented products out of the 20 new ETFs being listed today on Deutsche Börse Xetra.
With these listings, Amundi ETF is offering German investors competitively priced access to two families of innovative products, providing multiple allocation opportunities.
Six Short Fixed-Income ETFs, unprecedented on Xetra, offering investors a daily inverse exposure to the eurozone government bond market to take advantage of a potential rise in interest rates.
- The range benefits from a favorable market background of low interest rates while responding to diverse investor needs: portfolio diversification, hedging, tactical allocation, arbitrage, etc...
It includes six products which replicate a family of Short EuroMTS Eurozone Government Broad indices of all maturities and buckets of maturities ranging from 1 to 15 years, enabling investors to take positions on all or part of the eurozone interest rate curve.
Launched in France in mid-January, this product range has experienced great success with both French and European institutional clients and has raised some 200 million Euros in just a few weeks.
- Four Commodity ETFs, also unprecedented on Xetra, aimed at investors seeking exposure to the main commodity segments (agriculture, precious or industrial metals, energy, etc.) in a simple form and within a regulated UCITS III framework.
Commodity ETFs seek to replicate a basket of commodities as closely as possible, without the inconvenience of physical purchases or forwards contracts.
Considered as an alternative investment and historically uncorrelated to traditional asset classes, commodities constitute an excellent portfolio diversification tool. With underlying prices sustained by strong and consistent demand from emerging countries, they benefit from long-term growth prospects.
These products are managed through synthetic replication and benefit from the high quality ratings of the Crédit Agricole (Equity & Commodity ETFs) and Société Générale (Fixed Income ETFs) Groups.
In line with its strategy, the Amundi ETF range, comprising 78 products of which 58 are available on Xetra, will continue to be broadened on Deutsche Börse, offering investors access to its three key strengths: competitive prices, quality products and continuous innovation.
The Amundi ETF range is distributed by the dedicated sales teams of Amundi and CA Cheuvreux. Further information on Amundi ETF can be found on the amundietf.com website.
