MTS licenses Lyxor for MTS France and MTS Italy indices


MTS has granted a licence to Lyxor to create exchange-traded funds based on its MTS France and MTS Italy Government Bond 1-3 year Indices.

The indices track the performance of all MTS-listed sovereign debt instruments issued by the French and Italian governments that have more than EUR2bn outstanding and a maturity of between one and three years.
Jack Jeffery, chief executive of MTS, says: “We are delighted that Lyxor has again chosen to create ETFs based on MTS Government bond indices. MTS France and MTS Italy Government bonds indices continue to provide key benchmark tools for bond investors and Lyxor’s new instruments are a further demonstration of this.”
Nizam Hamid, head of product line management ETFs with Lyxor, says: “Lyxor is pleased to offer investors, through its new Government Bond ETF products, the opportunity of a direct and precise exposure to front end debt instruments of two major eurozone economies  based on independent, accurate and well-established indices provided by MTS.”
The MTS France Government Bond Index and MTS Italy Government Bond Index are calculated and published in real time. They are freely-available on the MTS website and through major data vendors.
