Global ETF launches 5.8.21 to 12.8.21
A whole new geographical area for ETF launches has emerged this week with two launches on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
South African financial service company Sygnia has launched an ETF based on the Solactive Developed Markets Healthcare 150 Index – the Sygnia Itrix Solactive Healthcare 150 ETF, while asset manager Satrix has launched the Satrix Inclusion and Diversity ETF which tracks the Refinitiv Satrix South Africa Inclusion & Diversity Index, and was developed with Refinitiv.
Other notable launches this week came from the US’s Nuveen, which has launched its first suite of active semi-transparent ETFs. The firm writes that, already available as mutual fund strategies, the three semi-transparent active ETFs combine the structural advantages of both the ETF and mutual fund wrappers, with the objective of helping clients meet their financial goals through the investment vehicle of their choice.
