ETFS Hydrogen ETF (ASX Code: HGEN) offers investors exposure to the leading hydrogen companies in the world, with a focus on pure plays. Sometimes described as the Swiss army knife of decarbonisation, hydrogen contains three times more energy on a weight for weight basis than petrol while producing no carbon dioxide emissions. Hydrogen can be used to replace fossil fuels like coal in areas that have proved hard to green up in the past.


HGEN aims to provide investors with a return, before fees and expenses, that tracks the performance of the Solactive Global Hydrogen ESG Index. The index holds 30 companies from developed markets, Taiwan and Korea with a focus on pure play hydrogen businesses. These include hydrogen fuel cell makers; companies developing hydrogen based infrastructure like refuelling stations; and companies creating hydrogen or making storage facilities.


HGEN uses a full replication strategy to track the index, meaning that it holds shares of every company in its index. Pure play hydrogen companies, which are identified using natural language processing, receive more weight in the fund and have their weights capped at 10%. Non pure play hydrogen companies receive less weight, and have their weights capped at 4% each.
