The ETFS Diversified-Factor Developed Europe Index Fund tracks the Scientific Beta Developed Europe Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy Equal Weight Index, which “is composed of the 700 largest and most liquid stocks listed in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom,” according to ETF Securities.

The ETF currently holds 476 stocks, nearly a third of which are U.K. companies. France and Germany combine for over 23% of the new ETF’s weight. Top sector weights include 22.6% to financial services, 17% to industrials and 13.3% to consumer cyclicals.

Both new ETFs charge 0.4% per year.

SBUS and SBEU debuted on the heels of ETF Securities’ initial forays into U.S.-listed equity ETFs. Those ETFs, the ETFS Zacks Earnings Large-Cap U.S. Index Fund (NYSEArca: ZLRG) and the ETFS Zacks Earnings Small-Cap U.S. Index Fund (NYSEArca: ZSML) launched last week.
