The iShares Edge MSCI World Minimum Volatility UCITS ETF EUR Hedged (Acc) enables investors to participate in the performance of the MSCI World Minimum Volatility Index. Using a minimum volatility strategy, the reference index accepts companies from the MSCI World Index with particularly low, absolute volatility.

The iShares Edge MSCI World Multifactor UCITS ETF EUR Hedged (Acc) enables investors to participate in the performance of the MSCI World Diversified Multiple-Factor Index. The reference index selects companies from the MSCI World Index based on the following four factors: company value, momentum measured by share price performance, size in terms of market capitalisation and quality with a view to return on equity, level of debt and earnings volatility.

Both ETFs minimise the exchange rate risk between the US dollar and the euro.

The product offering in Deutsche Börse's XTF segment currently comprises 1,150 exchange traded funds. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around €13 billion, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
