Franklin Templeton a new Smart Beta ETF issuer on Xetra
September 7, 2017

Four exchange-traded funds issued by Franklin Templeton have been tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Thursday. The new ETFs allow European investors to participate in the performance of Franklin LibertyQ indices for the first time.

The composition of these indices is based on a weighting of four factors: quality, valuation, momentum and volatility. The underlying smart beta strategies represent an investment alternative to conventional indices weighted by market capitalization.

Said Dr Martin Reck, Managing Director Cash Market at Deutsche Börse: "The primary listing of Franklin LibertyQ ETFs further expands our smart beta offering by adding multi-factor strategies. As there is currently very keen investor interest in Europe in these two types of strategy, the funds are an ideal supplement to our Xetra product range."
