Since Monday, five new exchange-traded funds issued by Invesco have been tradable on Xetra and via Börse Frankfurt.
The four new equity ETFs provide access to companies from individual sectors of the S&P Developed Ex-Korea LargeMidCap ESG Enhanced Index family. Large and mid-cap companies from developed countries are considered, taking ESG and environmental factors into account. Companies with business activities in the fields of tobacco, weapons, oil sands, military contracts, thermal coal and those that violate the guidelines of the United Nations Global Compact are excluded.
The energy, financial industry, healthcare and information technology (IT) sectors are available to investors.
The Invesco Global High Yield Corporate Bond ESG UCITS ETF – EUR Pfund Hedged Acc offers access to the global fixed income bond market for high-yield fixed income bonds issued by developed and emerging market companies. The selected bonds are denominated in the British pound, euro or US dollar currencies and have a minimum remaining maturity of one year. In addition, the issuers must have a stable ESG profile and must not be active in controversial business areas.
The ETF is currency-hedged, so the impact of exchange rate fluctuations between British Pound and Euro are minimised.
