HANetf Products

  • Sprott Uranium Miners UCITS ETF | U3O8 seeks to provide investors with a way to invest in the growth of nuclear power through exposure to uranium miners.

    This comprises companies involved in the uranium industry, spanning the mining, exploration, development and production of uranium. The ETF also invests in entities that hold physical uranium, uranium royalties, or other non-mining assets.

    Nuclear is increasingly viewed as critical to the clean energy transition, and demand for uranium is set to surge. Uranium miners could be poised to benefit from this trend.

    The uranium miners tracks the North Shore Sprott Uranium Miners Index (URNMX), which seeks to invest in holdings that have a significant part of their business operations related to uranium mining, exploration for uranium, physical uranium investments, and technologies related to the uranium industry.

  • Future of Defence UCITS ETF | NATO provides exposure to the companies generating revenue from NATO and NATO+ ally defence and cyber defence spending.

    Global military spending is rising. In 2023, .2 trillion was spent on defence — the highest level ever recorded. With the ongoing geopolitical tensions, one area of growth is among European NATO members. But despite such record spending, most European NATO members are still lagging the 2% of GDP target.

    But defence is no longer just about physical borders and military strength – since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, state-sponsored actors have targeted hundreds of governmental organisations in dozens of countries that support Ukraine, highlighting the importance of cyber defence.

    The Future of Defence ETF tracks the EQM Future of Defence Index (NATONTR). Using a passive, rules-based approach, companies must derive more than 50% of their revenues from the manufacture and development of military aircraft and/or defence equipment or have business operations in cyber security contracted with a NATO+ member country.

  • AuAg ESG Gold Mining UCITS ETF | ESGO seeks to offer exposure to an equal-weighted basket of 25 ESG screened companies that are active in the gold mining industry.

Only the top 25 lowest ESG Risk companies are included within the index. The equal-weighted design also helps to avoid concentration risks; the possible underweighting of a few dominant mega-companies may also provide a beneficial return profile for ESGO in a bull market for gold and gold miners.

    The fund tracks the Solactive AuAg ESG Gold Mining Index (SOLESGON) which focuses on companies that have low ESG risk characteristics.

  • Sprott Junior Uranium Miners UCITS ETF | URNJ provides exposure to small- and mid-cap uranium miners that offer the potential of outperforming in the near future.

  • Sprott Energy Transition Materials UCITS ETF | SETM provides exposure to the companies that are providing the critical materials needed for the global clean energy transition.

    As a result, demand for these critical materials should boost their prices. We believe companies that are upstream in the supply chain will benefit from the increased investment in the critical minerals necessary for the clean energy transition.

    The energy transition materials ETF tracks the Nasdaq Sprott Energy Transition Materials Ex Uranium Index (NSETMU), which is designed to track the performance of a selection of global securities in the energy transition materials industry.
