Global ETF launches 1.7.21 to 8.7.21

Despite a shorter week in the US, with the fourth of July celebrations taking place on the Monday, ETF launches continued apace this week.

There was a heavy tilt towards all things green with a new green sovereign bond ETF from Lyxor, HSBC Asset Management’s Paris-aligned ETF and HANetf and Saturna’s actively managed HANzero sustainable ETF. HANetf has added a carbon offset facility to its range of ETFs which means that anything with the HANzero label has its carbon offset, much in the same way as using currency hedging, according to the firm.

Other launches this week came from Leverage Shares, at it again, with their single stock 3 x long and 1 x short ETPs on a range of stocks. Dimensional in the US has filed to launch fixed income ETFs later this year, as flagged in our interview with Nicole Hunter last month

Finally, LGIM believes that commodities will see a return to favour as inflation and market concerns rise. The firm has launched a multi-strategy enhanced commodities ETF.
