HANetf Europe’s first full service &lsquowhite label’ ETP platform is delighted to announce that it has registered 19 of its ETFs in Spain.[2] This is in addition to the existing 16 ETCs that are already passported into Spain including The Royal Mint Responsibly Sourced Physical Gold ETC (RMAU) and SparkChange Physical Carbon EUA ETC (CO2).

HANetf is Europe’s most extensive thematic ETF issuer with over 40 products listed on major exchanges across Europe including London Stock Exchange Deutsch B&oumlrse XETRA Borsa Italiana and Euronext Paris. [3]

HANetf has received increasing demand among Spanish investors for ETFs. The new registrations give Spanish investors access to our wide range of innovative thematic ETFs.

HANetf is at the forefront of the ETF innovation. The new registrations in Spain include several first-of-their-kind funds including:

Also being registered is EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce UCITS ETF (EMQQ) which provides exposure to the growth of online consumption in the developing world. The plunging costs of smartphones and wireless broadband are providing unprecedentedly large swaths of the population in developing countries with access to the Internet for the first time enabling revolutions not just in consumption patterns but also digital payments communication healthcare education entertainment grocery delivery and more.

Moreover of over half of the new registrations in Spain are SFDR Article 8 approved. In May the HANS-GINS Tech Megatrend Equal Weight UCITS ETF (ITEK) achieved Article 8 SFDR status owing to its objective to have a positive impact on the environment and society.[5] Spanish investors will therefore be able to access disruptive technology companies with the peace of mind that the fund benefits from best-in-class screening and promotion of sustainable investment characteristics.

In addition to this environmentally conscious investors in Spain will gain access to our iClima Global Decarbonisation Enablers UCITS ETF (CLMA) which is Article 9 under SFDR regulations demonstrating that the companies in its portfolio directly enable CO2 avoidance. [6]

Hector McNeil co-CEO and co-Founder HANetf comments:

“We are thrilled to register 19 of our ETFs in Spain a number we hope to see continue to grow. Spanish investors increasingly want access to thematic ETFs and HANetf is well placed to satisfy this demand. Spain is a vital and growing market that no pan-European ETF issuer can afford to ignore.”
