Amundi adds China and EM ex-China core exposure building blocks to ESG ETF equities range

30 November 2021

Amundi, Europe’s largest asset manager and a pioneer in responsible investing, is delighted to announce the expansion of its ESG ETF range with the listing of two additional Emerging Market ESG ETF building blocks on the London Stock Exchange. Both ETFs have been developed and launched in collaboration with the global asset manager AllianceBernstein.

The Amundi MSCI Emerging ex-China ESG Leaders Select UCITS ETF DR and the Amundi MSCI China ESG Leaders Select UCITS ETF DR provide exposure to broad Emerging Markets ex-China and Chinese equities, respectively.

In line with investor demand, these new ETFs incorporate ESG criteria and are classified as Article 8 under SFDR regulation. They both:

Apply exclusion filters on companies involved in controversial activities including tobacco, weapons and thermal coal;

Implement a best-in-class approach by selecting the top 50% of companies in each sector by ESG score

With a competitive OGC of 0.35%, these complementary ETFs represent an important extension to the Amundi range of ESG ETFs, offering investors cost-effective and sustainable exposure to broad emerging markets and China.

Amundi has a long history of working with clients to develop solutions to meet their needs. For AllianceBernstein, ESG is integrated in over US $456 billion of assets managed. Partnering with Amundi to add core emerging market equity ESG exposures was an important step in responding to the growing demand for more sustainable investment solutions.
