  • HANetf’s Uranium Miners ETF has surpassed $10 million AUM, after launching in May

  • The European Union is now set to classify nuclear energy as ‘green’ in the bloc’s sustainable finance taxonomy

HANetf, Europe’s first full service ‘white label’ ETP platform, is delighted to announce that Sprott Uranium Miners UCITS ETF (URNM) has now passed the $10 million assets under management (AUM) milestone.

URNM was launched in May and provides investors exposure to uranium miners through the North Shore Sprott Uranium Miners Index. Alongside uranium mining equities, the ETF invests in physically backed uranium investment trusts. The Uranium Miners ETF has bucked the trend of the wider thematic universe which has seen lack lustre growth.

The ETF was launched in partnership with Sprott Asset Management. Sprott are experts in the uranium space, overseeing a US-listed sister uranium miners ETF with around $700 million AUM[1] and a physical uranium trust with almost $3bn AUM. [2]

As Europe begins its transition towards net-zero, with an aim to achieve it by 2050, nuclear energy could be an essential part of the process.[3] Nuclear energy’s role in the net-zero transition has been further solidified thanks to the European Union agreeing to classify nuclear energy as ‘green’ in the bloc’s sustainable finance taxonomy.

 

Hector McNeil, co-CEO and co-Founder HANetf comments:

““We’ve seen bold government commitments on restraining the rise in global temperature to 1.5C but that will require a revolution in how we generate our energy. While wind and solar have made huge strides and will be core parts of future electricity generation, it is becoming clear that nuclear generation also needs to be part of the panoply of solutions. Investors are clearly recognising this and investing accordingly.

“On the other hand, the short-term crisis is also likely to accelerate adoption and expansion of renewable and alternative energy sources and an affirmation of the Paris Agreement goals which should also in the mid-term benefit the Electric Vehicle ecosystem and provide an additional push for the expansion of the charging networks.”

Please remember that the value of your investment may go down as well as up and past performance is no indication of future performance. When you trade ETFs, your capital is at risk.
