Trackinsight: ETFs tracking the Dutch AEX gain on semiconductor frenzy

11/22/2021 | 11:15am

The imbalance in semiconductor trade due to the global supply chip shortages have lifted almost every semiconductor stock on the planet, including the Dutch ones.

Dutch shares are among the top performing European shares with the Netherland's benchmark index, the AEX, gaining 31% year-to-date on the surge of semiconductors stocks. AEX is beating the French CAC 40 (+27.8%), the Italian IT40 (+23.2%), the German DE40 (+17.6%) and the EU50 indices (+22.27%) so far this year. The index is composed of a maximum of 25 of the most frequently traded securities on the Euronext Amsterdam.

Spearheading the index's stellar performance this year are shares of ASM International (Semiconductors, +140%), IMCD (Specialty Chemicals, +101%), ASML Holding (Semiconductors, +91%) and BE Semiconductor Industries (Semiconductors, +74%). The imbalance in semiconductor trade due to the global supply chip shortages have lifted almost every semiconductor stock on the planet, including the Dutch ones.

iShares AEX UCITS ETF (IAEX) and VanEck Vectors AEX UCITS ETF (TDT) are good tools to ride the AEX's success gaining each more than 33% year-to-date. The iShares AEX UCITS ETF is the largest with ?488.34 million in assets under management. The funds trades on the Euronext Amsterdam, the London Stock Exchange, the SIX Swiss Exchange and the BATS Chi-X Europe, charging 0.3% in annual fees
