Rize ETF launches Europe infrastructure ETF

Rize ETF has launched Europe’s first SFDR Article 9 global sustainable infrastructure ETF.

The Rize Global Infrastructure UCITS ETF looks to provide investment returns that correspond to the Foxberry SMS Global Sustainable Infrastructure USD Net Total Return Index. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with listing on the SIX Swiss Exchange due in the coming weeks.

Rize says the fund is Europe’s first and only SFDR Article 9 sustainable thematic ETF specifically targeting companies that are making a substantial contribution to global sustainable infrastructure development. These are companies involved in maintaining and upgrading the existing infrastructure of more industrialised economies, as well as companies developing new infrastructure required for the economic advancement of less industrialised economies as part of our transition to a greener, more sustainable economy.

Rahul Bhushan, Co-Founder and Director of Rize ETF says, “The Rize Global Infrastructure UCITS ETF (NFRA) enables traditional ETF investors to access global infrastructure in a way that balances economic, environmental and social objectives. It enables thematic ETF investors to access a theme with both a low volatility screen and a quality screen to help diversify otherwise growth-heavy portfolios. Finally, it enables sustainable/impact ETF investors to access an Article 9 solution with a novel and first-of-its-kind sustainability framework for infrastructure which is rooted in the EU Taxonomy and the UN SDGs.”
