Theo Andrew

BlackRock has been consulting clients in a bid to gauge interest in the launch of a nuclear ETF, the firm’s head of sustainable indexing for EMEA Manuela Sperandeo has said.

In the first of a new webinar series, ETF Investigations, Sperandeo said it found the sector interesting and has been talking with index and data providers about how it could capture the sector.

“The topic of nuclear is a very interesting one that we have been consulting clients on over the past few months,” Sperandeo said.

“We have been discussing extensively with our index provider partners around a plan on consulting the marketplace. There is going to be future evolution as we get greater clarity on what the EU’s sustainable taxonomy looks like.”

Speakers in this webinar include:

  • Manuela Sperandeo, managing director, EMEA head of sustainable indexing, BlackRock

  • Hortense Bioy, global head of sustainability research, Morningstar

  • Sergey Dolomanov, partner, William Fry

ETF Investigations is a new webinar series from ETF Stream which examines the key issues facing ETF investors in Europe.
