ETF Securities lists range of currency ETVs on Euronext

July 3, 2014



ENP Newswire - 03 July 2014

Release date- 02072014 - First currency ETVs on Euronext.

Today ETF Securities listed a range of currency Exchange Traded Vehicles (ETVs) on Euronext Amsterdam, which are the first ETVs on Euronext that give exposure to currency pairs.

The new products allow investors to capitalize on an increase or decrease of the Japanese Yen without any leverage, or to anticipate on an increase or decrease of the Japanese Yen or US dollar with a leverage factor of 3. Leveraged ETVs enable investors to trade on a short term basis with a competitive total cost of ownership.

Currency ETVs appeal to investors wishing to diversify their portfolio through the addition of a new asset class which has a low correlation with equities and bonds, or wanting to take advantage of tactical or strategic macro opportunities using the foreign exchange market.

Philippe Roset, Head Benelux of ETF Securities states: 'ETF Securities have seen currency ETPs becoming increasingly popular in recent years as evidenced by US$100 million inflows in our currency ETPs in 2013 and US$144 million YTD in 2014. Even though more investors are using our currency ETPs in other European markets, they have not previously been easy to access for investors in The Netherlands or Belgium. The 6 new currency products will offer investors in these countries an efficient way of accessing this new asset class. The EUR/USD currency ETPs continue to be the most popular with investors as concerns over deflation within the Eurozone has prompted over US$90mn in inflows into ETFS 3x Long USD Short Euro in 2014.'

Danielle Ballardie, Head of Cash markets at Euronext, said: 'We're delighted to welcome the new currency ETVs to our Amsterdam market. With these new products we're adding a new asset class to Euronext's wide offering of ETFs and ETVs, providing investors with new investment opportunities. It is yet another example of expanding our product offering, being a leading capital raising center.'

ETVs provide investors exposure to underlying assets such as futures contracts, commodities, and currencies without actually trading futures or ever taking physical delivery of the underlying assets.

Currently Euronext has 609 ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) and 23 ETVs listed on its markets.
