We obtain refined generating series formulae for equivariant characteristic classes of external and symmetric products of singular complex quasiprojective varieties. More concretely, we study equivariant versions of Todd, Chern and Hirzebruch classes for singular spaces, with values in delocalized Borel–Moore homology of external and symmetric products. As a byproduct, we recover our previous characteristic class formulae for symmetric products and obtain new equivariant generalizations of these results, in particular also in the context of twisting by representations of the symmetric group.
