New MSCI ETFs in the AppStocks & ETFs
As you probably know, we are constantly adding new ETFs to BUX Zero. You can find out about the latest newcomers in today’s article.
The ETFs we are introducing today come from Xtrackers (in our case, ‘X’ for short). The funds are managed by a German group called DWS, which is one of the world’s leading asset managers with more than €895 billion under management. It emerged from the asset division of Deutsche Bank.
Our new ETFs replicate parts of the large MSCI World Index family. The MSCI World Index is a well-known stock index that tracks the performance of companies from 23 developed countries. There are also smaller portions of this index that focus on different sectors, such as finance, technology, or energy. Our new ETFs today follow some of these sub-indices.
Below you’ll find a brief description of the individual ETFs. For each one, we’ll list a few well-known companies included in the fund. You can also see the return of each ETF year to date. Of course, past results are not a guarantee of future results.
We’ve also included the total size of the fund. And, finally, you can see the number of companies included. Take a look at the four ETFs and click on the title to go straight to the ETF in the app.
