Lyxor ETF reports blockbuster year


Lyxor ETF reports that 2015 was a record year, with net new assets of EUR8.9 billion. The firm writes that these record inflows have strengthened Lyxor’s foothold as the third largest ETF provider in Europe with EUR48.3 billion in total assets, and a growing market share of 10.7 per cent.

Lyxor also retained its number two ranking for liquidity in the European ETF market, with one in every five Euros traded in ETFs being in a Lyxor fund.
At EUR5.9 billion, the bulk of these inflows were on European equity exposures. Lyxor’s range of products on this particular asset class is diverse, with 89 ETFs and EUR24 billion in assets.
The firm writes that it maintained its leadership position on its flagship Euro Stoxx 50 ETF, which remained the biggest ETF in the world for this index (EUR7.225 billion) and had some of the largest single country European ETFs such as the CAC 40 (EUR4.1 billion), FTSE MIB (EUR1.2 billion) and IBEX 35 (EUR980 million).
On the fixed income side, Lyxor ranked third in Europe for the year with assets at EUR9.6 billion. With inflows of EUR2.7 billion, the firm writes that this asset class contributed significantly to Lyxor’s growth in 2015. The Smart Beta segment also gathered considerable inflows for Lyxor last year with EUR1 billion in new assets.
In 2016, Lyxor will continue to reinforce its offering within fixed income and Smart Beta. Arnaud Llinas, Head of ETFs & Indexing at Lyxor says: “We are delighted with the growth in our assets as it clearly illustrates our strategy is resonating with investors: to offer a comprehensive range of the most efficient products for our clients. We will keep innovating in order to respond to the needs of our clients, and to help them adapt to the ongoing challenges posed by financial markets”.
