UBS ETFs announces price reduction for A share class

UBS Global Asset Management has reduced the charges for its A share class UBS Exchange Traded Funds.

The A share class range is said to be more accessible due to its low minimum investment unit size. T

he move underlines UBS Global Asset Management’s commitment to providing best-in-class service to ETF investors at the most competitive prices, UBS said.

UBS ETFs said it is also committed to transparency in all fees and charges, all of which are publicly available on its website.

For its range of swap-based ETFs, UBS is the only European ETF provider to disclose a pre-defined ‘drag level’ which includes not just the TER, but all other costs applied to the fund.

Thus, investors know in advance exactly how much the ETF will lag the benchmark due to costs. Swap-based ETFs comprise 25 % of UBS’s range of ETFs, while 75% are physically replicating funds.

New TERs from 16 September 2013 will be as follows:

  • UBS ETF (LU) FTSE100 UCITS ETF A new TER of 0.20% (was 0.35%)
  • UBS ETF (LU) MSCI World UCITS ETF A new TER of 0.30% (was 0.45%)
  • UBS ETF (LU) MSCI Japan UCITS ETF A new TER of 0.35% (was 0.55%)
