WisdomTree launches US quality growth Ucits ETF

US-based exchange-traded product specialist WisdomTree has launched an ETF that seeks to track the performance of US large-cap high-growth companies.

The US Quality Growth Ucits ETF (QGRW), which has a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.33%, lists today on Frankfurt’s Börse Xetra and Milan’s Borsa Italiana. From tomorrow it will list on the London Stock Exchange.

The fund will follow WisdomTree’s proprietary US Quality Growth Ucits Index and aims to provide higher upside participation in bull markets and generate positive excess returns over a full market cycle.

Pierre Debru, WisdomTree’s head of quantitative research, said: “Growth tends to capture disruptive and growing companies, which translates into higher allocation to technological giants, yet historical returns suggest that investing in growth stocks with no filters can be a losing game over the long run.

“The new ETF is an alternative to growth strategies such as the Nasdaq 100, as it takes a more holistic approach to portfolio construction instead of focusing solely on the market capitalisation of constituents or their stock exchange listing.”

The new ETF aimed at European investors complements a similar strategy launched in the US in 2022 and joins WisdomTree’s $360m range of Quality Growth ETFs.
