Deutsche Börse welcomes FlexShares as a new ETF issuer on Xetra

Quant and ESG combined: low volatility or high dividend yield

Two exchange traded funds issued by FlexShares have become tradable via Xetra and Börse Frankfurt for the first time since Monday.

With the FlexShares Developed Markets Low Volatility Climate ESG UCITS ETF - Acc and the FlexShares Developed Markets High Dividend Climate ESG UCITS ETF - Dist, investors have two actively designed ETFs with ESG filters available. Both ETFs are based on the STOXX Global 1800 index, a globally diversified equity index from industrialised nations.

From this universe, stocks are selected that are performing in terms of profitability, management experience and cash flow. At the same time, ESG criteria are applied to take ecological, social, and corporate governance principles into account when selecting companies.

The FlexShares Developed Markets High Dividend Climate ESG UCITS ETF - Dist offers investors access to companies with a high dividend yield. In contrast, the FlexShares Developed Markets Low Volatility Climate ESG UCITS ETF - Acc focuses on companies with overall lower volatility.
