Lyxor Asset Management has continued to strengthen its presence in the European ETF market, recording sales of EUR2.5 billion during the first five months of the year and a subsequent 13 per cent growth in ETF AuM since the end of 2013.
These inflows include EUR1 billion of sales during May alone, the third largest monthly inflows within the ETF industry globally.
Net inflows in 2014 come from two asset classes: EUR1.9 billion in equity ETFs and EUR600 million in fixed income ETFs. Within these asset classes, investors proved particularly interested in European equities, world equity and European government bonds.
Arnaud Llinas, global head of Lyxor ETF, says: “Lyxor ETF is the second provider in terms of net inflows in Europe since the beginning of the year. This result confirms the success of our ETF strategy which is to achieve the best performance by selecting the appropriate structure whether physical or synthetic.”
