Amundi and ERI Scientific Beta form partnership


Amundi and ERI Scientific Beta have formed a partnership that will combine ERI Scientific Beta’s expertise in the design of smart beta indices and Amundi’s knowledge of index replication and ETF construction.

The partnership will involve the construction of smart beta passive investment solutions and their promotion to a broad institutional client base.
The offering is being developed on the basis of ERI Scientific Beta’s “Smart Beta 2.0” approach, which enables smart beta indices to be conceived as risk control ingredients within multi-smart-beta allocation.
“Providing our institutional clients with the most innovative and proven solutions have been two of the watchwords that have seen the successful development of Amundi ETF and indexing business over the past years. By partnering with ERI Scientific Beta we will be able to build on this approach by offering our clients efficient indexed managed solutions including the very latest in smart beta index construction expertise,” says Valérie Baudson, global head of ETF and indexing at Amundi.
“This strategic partnership will allow Amundi to access ERI Scientific Beta’s extensive offering of smart beta indices and the selection and tracking/evaluation tools for these indices with full transparency. We are very much looking forward to helping Amundi to provide its institutional clients with the most rigorously defined and best performing smart beta ETF & Indexed products,” says Noël Amenc, CEO of ERI Scientific Beta.
Amundi and ERI Scientific Beta will be jointly organising a series of seminars in Europe between April and May 2014 to present the benefits of the multi smart beta concept and its implementation using Amundi’s ETF and indexing capabilities.
