ETF discussion and crypto panel

The German XENIX ETF AWARDS 2023 were awarded on the evening of March 2, 2023 on the premises of the Munich Stock Exchange. Qualitatively outstanding ETFs were honored, which currently have the best ETF rating according to the Berlin ETF specialists XENIX in their respective comparison groups.

In the ETF discussion between Dr. Robert Ertl, gettex exchange, and Claus Hecher, BNP Paribas Easy ETF, it became clear that private investors are increasingly turning to global equity ETFs and monthly ETF savings plans as an entry strategy. By contrast, despite higher nominal interest rates, interest in bond ETFs among German investors is manageable.

In the crypto panel, Martin Leinweber, Market Vector Indices, and Sven Wagenknecht, BTC-ECHO, discussed not Blockboster ETFs but possible complementary building blocks. They highlighted the regulatory environment for bitcoin as a direct investment and explained the indirect, exchange-traded access routes such as crypto basket ETPs and equity ETFs with blockchain exposure. These highly volatile niche ETFs allow you to take indexed exposure to listed technology companies without investing directly in cryptocurrencies.
