Investlinx has become the latest to enter the European ETF market with the launch of two active ETFs tracking equities and fixed income.
The Investlinx Capital Appreciation UCITS ETF (LINXC) and the Investlinx Balanced Income UCITS ETF (LINXB) will list on the Borsa Italiana on 27 February with total expense ratios (TERs) of 0.35%.
LINXB will split its portfolio allocation roughly in half between equities and fixed income while LINXC will” primarily invest” in global equities.
Investlinx said it would look to list the ETFs across other exchanges in Europe in the “medium term” and expand its product offering to meet “a diverse set of return objectives and risk appetite for investors”.
Founded by Mario Bonaccorso in September 2021, Investlinx will also offer discretionary portfolio management and investment advisory services to individual clients across Europe.
Dutch holding company Exor is a minority shareholder in the business.
“Investlinx brings a distinctive offering in wealth management in Europe, allowing investors to broaden their investment options through global and diversified portfolios available for purchase as ETFs,” Bonaccorso said.
“We offer our clients investment knowledge and expertise built over several years to provide quality portfolios at competitive costs.”
Matteo Solfanelli, CEO of Investlinx, added: “ETFs are simple and cost-effective instruments but are currently used primarily as passive or thematic funds.
“With Investlinx, investors will benefit from diversified active portfolios managed through ETFs. By providing portfolios which meet different investors’ return objectives and risk appetites, we aim to generate attractive returns over time while preserving investors’ capital.”
