The ETFs include three disruptive technology ETFs (cloud computing, healthcare innovation, and innovative technologies) created in partnership with GinsGlobal Index Funds; an emerging markets internet and e-commerce ETF, known as EMQQ, in cooperation with Big Tree Capital; and a medical cannabis ETF in collaboration with Purpose Investments.

The listings mark the first time that Swiss investors can gain access to cloud technology and medical cannabis investment themes through locally listed ETFs.

The funds are scheduled to begin trading on SIX in early June. They are already listed on London Stock Exchange, Deutsche Börse, and Borsa Italiana.

All five ETFs are UCITS-compliant and currently registered for distribution in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Austria, Finland, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands.

Hector McNeil, co-Founder and co-CEO at HANetf, commented, “Most of the ETFs we are initially offering are firsts in the Swiss market and we have already seen significant demand from Swiss investors who have pushed us hard to bring these ETFs to the mass market.

“We see megatrend ETFs as being particularly well suited to the Swiss wealth management market as they are typically highly differentiated and target long-term social or technological trends that have seen high growth in recent years.

“With HANetf, asset managers can plug into an extensive pre-existing distribution infrastructure, supported by on-the-ground sales teams that encompass all major ETF markets and platforms. This significantly reduces the time, cost, and complexity of developing these relationships on their own.”

HAN-GINS Cloud Technology UCITS ETF
HAN-GINS Indxx Healthcare Innovation UCITS ETF
HAN-GINS Innovative Technologies UCITS ETF
EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce UCITS ETF
