BNP Paribas Asset Management has launched the Easy Euro Aggregate Bond SRI Fossil Free ETF and the Easy JPM ESG EMU Government Bond IG 1-3Y ETF.
The BNP Paribas Easy Euro Aggregate Bond SRI Fossil Free ETF aims to replicate the performance of the Bloomberg MSCI Euro Aggregate ex Fossil Fuel SRI Select (NTR) Index and provides investors with exposure to euro-denominated sovereign and corporate investment grade bonds.
The index excludes issuers in sectors with a negative ESG impact (such as fossil fuels), those in violation of the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and those involved in ESG-related controversies.
The BNP Paribas Easy JPM ESG EMU Government Bond IG 1-3Y ETF tracks the performance of the JP Morgan ESG EMU Government Bond IG 1-3 Year (TR) Index by investing at least 90% of its assets in debt securities issued by eurozone governments. Index constituents are euro-denominated government bonds with maturities between one and three years.
Both funds are classified as SFDR Article 8.
