Amundi has expanded its environmental, social and governance (ESG) range with the launch of Europe’s first euro aggregate bond SRI ETF.
The Amundi Index Euro Agg SRI UCITS ETF (EGRI) is listed on Euronext Paris with an ongoing charge (OGC) of 0.16%.
EGRI tracks the Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Euro Aggregate Sustainable SRI Sector Neutral index.
It offers exposure to sustainable euro-denominated fixed income government and corporate bonds.
Using a customised SRI methodology, EGRI implements a negative screening process while maintaining a broad exposure.
EGRI is part of a 10-strong range of SRI ETFs by Amundi which include three other fixed income products.
The launch follows high demand from Amundi’s clients for simple and transparent environmental, social and governance (ESG) ETFs.

Fannie Wurtz (pictured), head of Amundi ETF, indexing and smart beta, said: “This new listing demonstrates our commitment to meeting investors’ increasing demand for ESG passive solutions.
“The euro aggregate exposure offers investors the opportunity to build a diversified responsible investing portfolio tailored to their individual objectives.”
Amundi has launched several other sustainable ETFs in recent months including a climate change range last week and an equity ESG range in June.
