Deutsche Börse welcomes ETF Willow as a new ETF issuer on Xetra

Actively managed ETF with AI-based model and focus on Eurozone companies

ETF Willow's first Active Exchange Traded Fund has been tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Thursday.

The investment objective of the AI-Enhanced Eurozone Equities UCITS ETF is to outperform the MSCI EMU Index through stock selection. This involves identifying companies with upside potential that are not closely correlated to systematic risk factors. These include risks related to individual countries’ fiscal policies, regulatory changes within sectors or sensitivity to global market movements.

The upside potential of the companies is determined using the expected returns based on a holistic AI-based model. Risk factors are derived from a global fundamental risk model.

The weighting of a security in the portfolio is determined by both its expected return and its risk assessment, with a higher expected return and a lower risk resulting in a higher weighting.
