Northern Trust’s NETS FTSE CNBC Global 300 Index Fund ETF (MYG) was introduced for trading on the NYSE Arca stock exchange on November 19.
The new fund follows a broad basket of 300 global stocks and is calculated by the FTSE Group.
Exxon Mobil, Proctor & Gamble, and Microsoft are the fund’s three largest stock holdings. Financials, energy, and consumer goods represent the fund’s three largest industry sectors.
Up until now, most of Northern Trust’s ETFs have been focused on the equity markets of single countries or niche sectors like real estate.
The fund’s underlying index selects stocks with a passive strategy and weights each company by its market capitalization or size. All of the holdings are reconstituted annually.
