Most Innovative New ETF in Europe – 2016
Awarded to the most groundbreaking and disruptive ETF launched in 2016. This is an ETF that is pushing the envelope in terms of what kinds of exposures can be packaged into an ETF.
- ComStage Alpha Dividende Plus UCITS
This unique ETF is the first actively managed ETF in the ComStage stable, and takes a unique approach to the market. Using quantitative screens, it picks stocks based on momentum, price to earnings growth and profitability, and then screens for low volatility and high dividend payouts.
- Lyxor J.P. Morgan Multi-Factor Europe Index UCITS ETF
This unique ETF leverages a basket of five different factors (value, low size, momentum, low beta and quality) in an effort to deliver consistent outperformance to investors. It’s a key example of the rising use of multi instead of single factor exposure.
- iShares Automation & Robotics UCITS ETF
Automation is a big topic in today’s macro discussions. This unique ETF captures the robotics trend in a positive way, scouring the globe (across developed as well as emerging markets) for companies poised to benefit from rising robotic usage.
- iShares MSCI EM SRI UCITS ETF
Launched in July 2016, the iShares MSCI EM SRI UCITS ETF provides exposure to emerging market companies that are best in class in terms of managing their environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities. With strong returns and a strong purpose, this fund is a good fit for many investors.
- Lyxor US$ 10Y Inflation Expectations UCITS ETF
One of the most popular new ETFs launched in 2016, pulling in more than £325 million, this new Lyxor ETF solves a major problem with most inflation linked bond exposures—during periods of inflation, banks often raise interest rates, driving down the price of bonds. This ETF hedges out that interest rate risk, while retaining the upside inherent in inflation linked bonds.
