UBS GAM launches Japanese and UK equities ETF and global corporate bonds fund on Xetra

UBS GAM has launched three new ETFs focused on currency-hedged investment in Japanes and UK equities and global corporate bonds on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Friday.

With the UBS ETF (LU) MSCI Japan UCITS ETF (hedged to EUR) A-acc and the UBS ETF (LU) MSCI United Kingdom UCITS ETF (hedged to EUR) A-acc, investors can invest in large and medium-sized companies from Japan and the UK. Investors are hedged against currency risks against the Euro.

The UBS ETF (LU) Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Global Liquid Corporates Sustainable UCITS ETF (USD) A-acc is an investment grade fixed income corporate bond issued in local currency from the US, Canada, the eurozone and the UK. To be included in the index, the bonds must have different minimum volumes and a remaining maturity of at least one year and must have been issued in the last three to five years.

Any dividends or interest accrued are reinvested in the three ETFs. The annual costs are between 0.20 and 0.30 per cent.
