Simplify your investments with Amundi’s indexed funds
Amundi is a leading European index management specialist. We provide investors with a wide range of simple, liquid and transparent products, from traditional indexed funds to Exchange Traded Funds (also called trackers).
Indexed funds closely replicate the performance of their benchmark index, as it moves up and down. Due to their simplicity, you benefit from the diversity of investing in the benchmark index plus competitive management fees1. Given these characteristics, they can be an excellent investment choice.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs): indexed funds that are quoted on the market
Also called trackers, ETFs combine the characteristics of an indexed fund, i.e. a regulatory structure (compliance with UCITS IV2 European norms) with those of equities (simple to buy and sell). Trading an ETF share takes place on the stock market so they can be bought or sold during the market’s opening hours. The flexibility and variety of ETFs makes them a useful and simple investment tool in your portfolio.
The advantages of investing with Amundi
Amundi offers exceptional quality, innovation and competitive prices1.
From traditional index funds to ETFs, we provide a range that gives you access to approximately one hundred indices covering all types of exposures (country, region and sector) through simple, liquid and transparent funds.
