Claymore Eyes Infrastructure ETF

Claymore Securities is considering its first infrastructure exchange-traded fund for U.S investors. Christian Magoon, president, said the firm will watch an infrastructure ETF it launched last week in Canada to figure out whether a U.S. version is appropriate.

The Canadian fund, Claymore Global Infrastructure ETF, tracks the MFS Global Infrastructure Index and uses a quantitative bottom-up method to invest in companies in the infrastructure sector. Claymore considers the infrastructure sector to include transportation, energy, water, communications, energy, hospitals, schools and prisons.

Magoon also said that Claymore typically likes to try out ETF strategies on the institutional side, usually in the form of a unit investment trust, to gauge demand for an offering.

In June Claymore become the first firm to launch a frontier markets ETF (FA, 6/30).
