WisdomTree has partnered with online brokerage ING Germany to offer its ETFs and exchange-traded commodities (ETCs) through ING’s platform.

The partnership means two million investors will have access to 29 ETFs and ETCs through their brokerage account.

WisdomTree said seven ETFs will be available without any purchase fees while the remaining 21 are available for a discounted purchase fee of €3.90.

Investors will have access to equity, fixed income and commodity exposures including its $1.8bn thematic range.

Elsewhere, ETCs available at discount include WisdomTree’s commodities suite, consisting of the WisdomTree Core Physical Gold (WGLD), WisdomTree Copper (COPA) and WisdomTree Carbon (CARB).

The issuer hopes the move will capture the growing ETF market in Germany, which totals roughly $80bn, according to data from ExtraETF.

“As one of the leading online brokers in Germany, the relationship with ING Germany is of strategic importance and enables us to support investors in achieving their investment goals in this growing market.”
