Global ETF launches for 9th to 16th December

A varied week of launches this week as we go into the Christmas holidays. European investors are to gain access to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway through Leverage Shares’ new ETP offering access to the Sage of Omaha at a fraction of the price, with Cathie Wood’s ARK Invest’s products also lined up for a London listing.

ESG continued to feature strongly this week, with GSAM launching its Paris-aligned large cap US equity ETF, Global X ETFs launching an autonomous and electric vehicles product in Hong Kong and Tabula extending its Climate Bond ETF to the Borsa Italiana. DWS also brought us another ESG bond ETF. Not quite ESG, but certainly very relevant in this week of more worrying news about the pandemic, Direxion has launched the Direxion mRNA ETF designed to offer investors exposure to messenger RNA technology, the research area that served as the basis for most COVID-19 vaccines.

And cryptocurrencies and all things they affect featured with the Balance Sheet Opportunities ETF in the US from Valkyrie an ETF that aims to invest in innovative public companies with exposure to bitcoin and new ETPs on Ethereum and bitcoin.

Finally, Amplify ETFs brought us a new Black Swan ETF, the Amplify BlackSwan Tech & Treasury ETF (NYSE Arca: QSWN), an index-based ETF that seeks to hedge against significant losses while still participating in technology & growth equities.
