This week’s new ETF launches include a couple of funds with a focus on the future – a SmartETFs Smart Transportation & Technology ETF from Guinness Atkinson and a NextGen Food & Sustainability ETF from Defiance. Elsewhere, First Trust debuted a factor-based fixed income UCITS ETF, while SSGA launched a new emerging markets Government bond fund, and Goldman Sachs added three smart beta ETFs to it’s offering.

Following a couple of quiet weeks, new funds are back with a bang (or perhaps that should be FANG?) with a new ETN from REX Shares based on the NYSE FANG+ index of the world’s 10 biggest innovation firms. Elsewhere, BNP Paribas launched five new Easy ETFs, ProShares expanded its lineup of dividend growth ETFs, and BlackRock debuted Europe’s first ESG high yield Bond UCITS ETFs.

In another quiet week for ETF launches we have news of four new Target Outcome funds from First Trust Advisors, which are managed and sub-advised by Cboe Vest Financial (Cboe Vest) using a ‘target outcome strategy’ or pre-determined target investment outcome. The week’s only other launch is the third European ETF from Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM), the Goldman Sachs ActiveBeta Emerging Markets Equity UCITS ETF, which like the firm’s existing US vehicle, tracks GSAM's proprietary Goldman Sachs ActiveBeta Emerging Markets Equity Index.
