New Socially Responsible Corporate Bond ETF Launched

    Stockholm (NordSIP) – On 13 June, Amundi announced the launch of a new UCITS ETF tracking the Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Corporate SRI index. The index is designed to provide diversified USD corporate bond exposure while applying environmental, social and governance (ESG) selection filters.

    This new product is a cost effective way to access the US Dollar investment grade corporate bond market while keeping up responsible investment standards. The ETF only charges fees of 0.16% and excludes issuers involved in alcohol, tobacco, military weapons, gambling, adult entertainment, GMO and nuclear power.

    In a press release, Fannie Wurtz (pictured), Managing Director at Amundi ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta, commented: “This exciting expansion to Amundi’s ETF fixed income range underlines our commitment to deliver passive solutions for our clients that are in-line with their social responsibility goals. As the first asset manager to sign the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), we believe the potential of socially responsible investments will continue to grow in the future, and we are committed to offering the relevant bond and equity tools adapted to these new requirements.”
