The fund provides investors with exposure to shorter maturity government bonds of Eurozone countries with the lowest quality investment grade ratings.

It is linked to the EuroMTS Lowest Rated Investment Grade Government Capped 1-3 Index, an index composed of government bonds issued by Eurozone member states with ratings at lower than AAA (or equivalent rating from S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch) and a maturity of 1-3 years.

This new asset allocation tool broadens Amundi fixed income ETF range, providing investors with a choice of exposures to Eurozone government bonds by rating (lowest or highest within the investment grade universe) and maturity (all maturities or 1-3 years).

Valérie Baudson, Global Head of ETF and Indexing at Amundi, commented: “This latest launch is in line with our wish to offer investors a range of quality and competitively-priced products, enabling them to allocate assets according to their market expectations.”

As of 31 March, 2014, Amundi had more than €12 billion in ETF assets under management.

This ETF has a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.14%.
