Leonteq announced today its continued collaboration with Finanz und Wirtschaft (FuW), providing investors the opportunity to purchase a tracker certificate on the FuW-Value-Portfolio-Index.
After the successful cooperation between Leonteq and FuW on the tracker certificate for the FuW-Risk-Portfolio-Index released in January 2019, the two companies have come together again to broaden their offering to investors with a new exchange-traded tracker certificate on the FuW-Value-Portfolio-Index – the well-known equity portfolio with a long track record from the FuW financial newspaper.
The FuW-Value-Portfolio-Index is an international equity portfolio with a focus on Europe and North America. Portfolio components are chosen from all sectors, with the index replicating investments in global value stocks that have a medium- to long-term investment horizon. Allocation of components are made by an FuW editorial team based on a proprietary model that is based on fundamental analysis and aims to achieve a better risk and return profile than the S&P 500, the STOXX EUROPE 50 and the Swiss Market Index. With a starting investment of CHF 100, investors will now be able to easily, transparently and inexpensively add this portfolio to their own securities portfolio by purchasing the tracker certificate issued by Leonteq.
Jan Schwalbe, Editor-in-Chief of Finanz und Wirtschaft, commented: “Our first investment product – the tracker certificate on the FuW–Risk-Portfolio-Index – has received overwhelming approval and we are now looking forward, together with our partner Leonteq, to launching our second product on the market and thus allowing our readers to benefit from the know-how of Switzerland's largest business editorial office.”
David Schmid, Head of Investment Solutions of Leonteq, stated: “We are excited to continue our collaboration with FuW, a leading financial newspaper, and are proud to offer a second tracker certificate for an international equity portfolio that has such a long track record. This value portfolio will be a very attractive offer for both our domestic and our international clients and compliments our business progress with actively managed certificates, which has seen significant advancements over the past.”
