Deutsche Börse has announced the expansion of its XTF segment for exchange-traded index funds on the Xetra trading platform with the admission to trading of a new ETF issued by Lyxor International Asset Management, a subsidiary of France’s Société Générale.

The Lyxor ETF MSCI Asia Apex 50 tracks the performance of the MSCI Asia Apex 50 Price Return Index including dividends, an index containing the 50 largest companies in terms of market capitalisation in Asia outside Japan.

The benchmark index of the new Lyxor ETF is calculated in US dollars and only includes countries with a minimum five percent weighting, in order to minimise currency risks. Only countries with capital markets fully accessible to foreign investors are considered.

Deutsche Börse’s XTF platform on Xetra currently contains 370 exchange-traded index funds, the largest offering of any European stock exchange, and its monthly trading volume currently averages more than EUR9bn. The segment comprises ETFs from ComStage, db x-trackers, EasyETF, ETFlab, iShares, Lyxor, Market Access, PowerShares, SGAM, UBS Exchange Traded Funds and Xmtch.
