Amundi slashes fees on emerging markets ETFs

The total expense ratio (TER) on eight ETFs has been slashed from 0.45% to 0.20%. The TER is a measure of the total management and operating costs of an ETF to an investor.

The price cuts – of more than 50% – come at a time when emerging markets are enjoying renewed interest from investors. This interest was particularly evident in April, with inflows into global emerging markets ETFs ranking first in the European ETF market.

The ETFs in question (listed below) are all linked to indices produced and calculated by MSCI. They include the flagship MSCI Emerging Markets Index, which captures large and mid-cap representation across 21 emerging markets countries, and regional indices MSCI EM Asia, MSCI EM Latin America and MSCI Eastern Europe Ex Russia.

Commenting, Valérie Baudson, Global Head of ETF and Indexing at Amundi, said: “We want to offer our clients the cheapest available ETFs for this asset class. This fee reduction again demonstrates our willingness to constantly meet investors’ needs with quality products at low cost.”

The ETFs enjoying fee reductions are:
