First Trust Advisors Secures Approval to Sell Exchange-Traded Funds in Mexico
Nov 11 14
First Trust Advisors L.P. has secured approval from Mexican pension funds investment regulator, La Comision Nacional del Sistema de Ahorro para el Retiro (CONSAR), to sell two of its ETFs for sale to Mexican funded pensions, known as AFORES. Before an ETF can be purchased in a pension fund, it must be approved by CONSAR. This opportunity helps to further expand the footprint of its merit-based AlphaDEX ETFs into a new institutional market for First Trust. The two funds that have been approved are: First Trust Large Cap Value AlphaDEX Fund; First Trust Large Cap Core AlphaDEX Fund. In addition, both funds are cross-listed on the Bolsa Mexicana de Valores under the same ticker symbols. Currently, over 51 million Mexican workers save for their retirement in AFORES, according to CONSAR. There are approximately $164 billion (USD) in assets under management in Mexican pension funds and CONSAR projects Mexico's retirement savings will grow to $225 billion by 2018.
