UBS lists ETFs on five platforms

UBS has listed 14 exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on five adviser and direct-to-consumer platforms.

The company has added products listed on the London Stock Exchange to Ascentric, Hargreaves Lansdown, Nucleus, Raymond James and Transact. The ETFs track a range of indices and asset classes, including UK, US, Japanese and emerging markets equities, commodities and corporate bonds.

The move comes after UBS cut its fees across its ETF range last month, reducing some costs by as much as 20 basis points.

Andrew Walsh, head of ETF sales UK at UBS Global Asset Management, said the company was “in dialogue” with other platforms.

“Platforms are becoming ever more central to the investment landscape for financial advisers and DIY investors alike, and ETFs are seeing increased demand as they offer efficient, cost-effective access to the global markets,” he added.

The 14 ETFs added to the platforms are:
