Mirae's Global X ETFs brings two new funds to London
The two thematic funds — Global X Video Games & Esports UCITS ETF (HERU) and the Global X Telemedicine & Digital Health UCITS ETF (EDOC) — were listed on the London Stock Exchange on Friday.
HERU includes companies involved in the development or publishing of video games as well as distributors of video gaming and e-sports content.
EDOC offers investors exposure to companies driving advancements in telemedicine and digital health care, a sector in focus because of the coronavirus pandemic.
With the latest listing, the Seoul-based Mirae Asset Global Investments has listed ETFs across five continents: Asia, North and South America, Australia and Europe.
The Korean asset manager manages ETFs worth 60 trillion won ($54.4 billion) in 10 countries including Korea, the United States and Hong Kong, as of the end of last month, the company said.
Global X ETFs was acquired by the Seoul company in 2018.
