Ossiam, which offers specialist exchange-traded funds (ETFs), is to list its minimum variance emerging market product on the London, Frankfurt, Milan and Paris stock exchanges later this month.
Aimed at investors that want to allocate to emerging markets but contain volatility, the fund will track a new index created by Ossiam called the Ossiam Emerging Markets Minimum Variance Index. The index is calculated and published in real time by S&P, and it includes a selection of emerging markets stocks, selected among the 400 most liquid stocks from the S&P IFCI Index.
Ossiam is an affiliate of France’s Natixis Global Asset Management.
