OREANDA-NEWS. A new exchange traded commodity (ETC) issued by BNP Paribas Arbitrage Issuance B.V. has been tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Tuesday.

ETC name: BNP Paribas RICI Enhanced Brent TR Index ETC
Asset class: Commodity index ETC
Total expense ratio: 1 percent
Benchmark: Rogers International Commodity Enhanced Brent Crude Oil Index

The BNP Paribas RICI Enhanced Brent TR Index ETC enables investors to participate in the performance of Brent crude oil. The reference index contains Brent crude oil futures contracts with differing maturities. The reference index is denominated in US dollars. The limited maturity of the futures contracts requires a switch prior to expiry in exchange for a futures contract with the next expiry date (roll-over). Possible losses as a result of the roll-over are minimised using a selection procedure. Only contracts expiring in June or December are bought for the index. A rollover takes place twice a year and takes five trading days.

Deutsche Börse’s product range in its ETF and ETP segment currently comprises 1,127 ETFs, 186 ETCs and 136 ETNs. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around €15 billion, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue.
