Amundi expands low-cost Prime ETF range with UK small/mid cap and US treasury funds

Following the launch of Europe’s lowest cost core ETF range in March 2019, Amundi has added two further ETFs to the its Prime ETF range.

The Amundi Prime UK Mid and Small Cap UCITS ETF, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), offers investors low-cost exposure to the top 150 UK mid and small cap companies, included in the Solactive United Kingdom Mid and Small Cap ex Investment Trust index.

The Amundi Prime US Treasury Bond 0-1 Y UCITS ETF, which is listed on Deutsche Börse Xetra, offers investors low-cost exposure to USD-denominated securities issued by the US Treasury with a maturity of one to 12 months.

The Amundi Prime ETF range provides investors the essential building blocks of a diversified portfolio at a single, ultra-low ongoing charge of 0.05 per cent.

The range now comprises six equity and six fixed income exposures covering the core geographical exposures. All the ETFs in the range use physical replication and track indices developed by Solactive. They also all benefit from the exclusion of companies involved in the production or sale of controversial weapons.

Fannie Wurtz, Head of Amundi ETF, Indexing and Smart Beta, says: “When we launched our industry-leading low cost range of ETFs last year, we committed to listening to our clients and developing solutions to match their needs.  These new funds offer investors the opportunity to complement their portfolios with additional cost-effective core ETF exposures.
