Morgan Stanley launches FundLogic UCITS ETF

Morgan Stanley is launching the MS Scientific Beta Global Equity Factors UCITS ETF under its FundLogic platform.

The ETF, which provides exposure to the Scientific Beta Developed Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy Equal-Weight Index, is the first ETF to be launched between Morgan Stanley and ERI Scientific Beta.
 
This latest addition to the FundLogic platform aims to meet the growing demand from institutional investors to access smart beta indices and factor indices through liquid and transparent products.
 
“We are pleased to provide UCITS investors with access to the Scientific Beta Developed Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy Equal-Weight Index. The index was devised by ERI Scientific Beta, which is an innovative smart beta index provider and an affiliate of the EDHEC-Risk Institute,” says Hitendra Varsani, head of the quantitative and derivative strategies team at Morgan Stanley. “The ETF gives investors exposure to developed market equities and combines smart beta investing and risk factor investing into a single strategy.”
 
Professor Noël Amenc, director of EDHEC-Risk Institute and CEO of ERI Scientific Beta, says: “We are excited to partner with Morgan Stanley in providing its institutional clients with transparent smart-beta index replication using a market-leading fund platform. Through Morgan Stanley’s FundLogic platform, UCITS ETF investors can get exposure to our strategy in a very efficient way.”
