BlackRocks Launches Synthetic Swap ETF

BlackRock has recently announced the launch of a new ETF to add to their synthetic lineup. The iShares MSCI USA Swap UCITS ETF (MUSA) is available for trade on the Euronext Amsterdam and Euronext Paris and looks to replicate the performance of their first synthetic fund, the iShares MSCI USA UCITS ETF (CSUS) but with a much lower expense ratio of 0.07% compared to 0.33%. A quote from the head of iShares, Brett Pybus, states, “The launch of the MUSA expands choice for investors. We see a rising demand from certain investors for a swap-based alternative for this exposure where investors can realize a performance pick-up.”

ETF Newz Says:

The launch comes at a time when many investors are looking to swap-based products for investments.
