Amundi launches seven new fixed income ETFs, of which four are unprecedented

Paris, 23rd June 2010

Amundi ETF is pursuing its development by listing seven new fixed-income ETFs on NYSE Euronext in Paris. Four of these products are being launched in Europe for the first time demonstrating once again Amundi ETF’s capacity for innovation.

This new listing comprises:

  • A full range of ETFs tracking a family of both “long” and “short” US Treasury bonds indices. This includes three ETFs that seeks to replicate as closely as possible the Markit iBoxx $ Treasuries 1-3Y®, the Markit iBoxx $ Treasuries 3-7Y®, and the Markit iBoxx $ Treasuries 7-10Y® indices. The range also consists of three unprecedented “Short” ETFs* offering a daily inverse performance to the evolution of the same indices and the same buckets of maturities.
  • An innovative ETF* that replicates the performance of the EuroMTS ex-AAA Government Index. This index is reviewed on a monthly basis and is composed of debt securities issued by the Eurozone member states with a rating lower than “AAA” (or a lower equivalent rating to S&P, Moody's and Fitch).

Amundi ETF’s fixed income range is reinforced with this new listing, offering investors new opportunities to diversify their positions and implement various asset allocation strategies.

Valérie Baudson, Managing Director of Amundi ETF comments: “Amundi ETF is accelerating its development with these seven new fixed income products, offering European investors an increasingly diversified range of innovative ETFs.”

Thierry Ancona, Head of Sales Continental Europe CA Cheuvreux comments: “The launch of these seven new products confirms our capacity to offer innovative solutions adapted to an evolving market for institutional clients. The quality of the Amundi ETF range united with our execution services positions CA Cheuvreux as a key market player.”

Scott Ebner, Senior Vice President, Exchange Traded Products at NYSE Euronext declares:
“We are delighted to widen our ETF range with the launch of these seven new Amundi products of which 4 are without precedent in Europe. With currently 493 products listed on the European market offering transparency and liquidity, NYSE Euronext meets the growing investor demand for these products.”
