Amundi ETF – competitive and innovative
As a leading European ETF Issuer Amundi, stands out for its competitive pricing*, innovation and the quality of the funds available to investors.
A useful tool in an investor’s portfolio
The global ETF market has grown considerably over the last decade. ETFs, also known as ‘trackers’, aim to replicate as closely as possible the performance of their benchmark index, whether it rises or falls. They combine the advantages of index funds (compliant with European UCITS IV regulations) with those of equities (easy to buy and sell).
