Actively managed, responsibly invested

Why ETFs?

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) have seen enormous growth in the past 20 years due to a popular combination of:
  • The same all-in-one diversification offered by mutual funds
  • With the ease of trading like stocks
  • Full visibility of the underlying holdings

Traditionally passive investments, today’s ETFs have evolved to offer investors access to a much wider range of investment strategies, including an increasing number of actively managed funds.

Investing public votes AXA IM ACT Biodiversity Equity UCITS ETF as ETF of the Year.

The Swiss ETF Award honours the best exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded products in Switzerland. In addition to an independent 9-member jury consisting of experts and decision makers from the financial sector, nearly 1000 private investors also vote for the winners in each category.1
