Global ETF launches 16-24.04.20

The pick of this week’s new ETFs is the ‘milestone’ launch by BlackRock of a suite of three new iShares funds that combine environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues with the growing demand for minimum volatility factor strategies. BlackRock says it expects the sustainable indexing sector to attract USD1.2 trillion in new assets in the next decade. Elsewhere, UBS debuted a new Chinese government bonds ETF and Lyxor a fund based on the DAX 50 ESG index, with both making their bow on Xetra.
