UBS to offer Risk weighted Global Exposure

Nov 9 2011

ETP 09.11.2011. Today UBS Global Asset Management launched two ETF giving exposure to the MSCI ACWI Risk Weighted Net Total Return Index. They differ in their unit class in that the class I ETF is aimed primarily at institutional investors, while the class A ETF aims at private investors.

 

ETF name: UBS-ETF MSCI ACWI Risk Weighted I
ISIN: IE00B6VTQH62

Total expense ratio: 1.10 percent
Distribution policy: non-distributing

ETF name: UBS-ETF MSCI ACWI Risk Weighted A
ISIN: IE00B6VS8T94
Total expense ratio: 1.27 percent
Distribution policy: non-distributing
Benchmark: MSCI ACW Risk Weighted Net Total Return Index

The MSCI ACWI Risk Weighted Net Total Return Index comprises large and mid-cap companies from 24 industrialised and 21 developing countries as the normal MSCI ACWI index. But instead of weighting the constituents according to market capitalization, the weighting of the companies depends on their risk, meaning that low-volatile equities are given a greater weighting.

This brings the Cranberger database to 3473 ETP's in total.
