Amundi has launched the Amundi Index MSCI Emerging Markets SRI – UCITS ETF DR (EMSRI) which is the latest addition to its Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) ETF range.
EMSRI is tracking the MSCI Emerging Markets SRI index with an ongoing charge of 0.25 per cent.
The graph above shows the performance of both the MSCI EM SRI (Blue) and the MSCI Emerging Markets (Yellow). The SRI screened version of the index has outperformed the original index, according to MSCI. From May 2011 to December 2018, MSCI EM SRI Index has risen 29.52 per cent, significantly higher than the MSCI Emerging Markets Index which has only increased 2.26 per cent.
Amundi’s SRI ETF range already includes three equity ETF exposed to the MSCI Europe SRI, MSCI USA SRI and MSCI World SRI as well as two fixed income ETFs tracking Euro and US corporate SRI indices.
Fannie Wurtz, Managing Director at Amundi, said in a statement: “This new listing follows on from Amundi’s ambitious three-year ESG action plan announced last October and demonstrates our commitment to meet investors’ rising demand for ESG passive solutions, at competitive pricing.”
