From Aristocrats to carbon, this week saw a wide range of launches, including KraneShares’ S&P Pan Asia Dividend Aristocrats ETF (Ticker: KDIV), and the Carbon Collective’s Carbon Collective Climate Solutions US Equity ETF (CCSO).
New Global ETF Launches
A busy week again for ETF launches with a nice range of themes.
Despite the long weekend in the US slowing things up a little in the ETF world, European ETF launches were back with a vengeance this week.
Just the one launch this week in this quiet period – but a good one.
The final days of summer saw a range of ESG ETF launches from Ossiam in Europe while in the US, BlackRock launched a metaverse fund and a suite of BuyWrite funds based on baskets of fixed income securities.
In our two weeks away from the newsletter schedule, we have posted a lot of ETF launches even though it’s supposed to be the quiet time of the year.
A last blast of launches before the summer holidays begin in earnest brings us a new crypto product, launched into a crypto winter by Pando Asset, against the Vintner Pando Crypto Basket 6 Index.
Another quiet week for launches but 21Shares has added a metaphorical puffer coat to its protection against the crypto winter with the launch of risk-controlled exposure to bitcoin and Ethereum and we have two new entrants into the European ETF white labelling offering – Leverage Shares and Waystone.
A very quiet week for launches hides behind a huge week for the world’s economy.
The summer lull is definitely upon us, with a quiet week for launches, not least because of the 4th of July holiday in the US.
