Lyxor adds short-dated Gilts ETF to core fixed income range


Lyxor has expanded its range of core fixed income ETFs with the launch of the Lyxor FTSE Actuaries UK Gilts 0-5Y (DR) UCITS ETF. The firm writes that this new exposure completes Lyxor’s range of Gilts ETFs, giving investors the choice of short, all maturity or inflation linked Gilts, with a very competitive pricing advantage.

Lyxor’s decision to expand their range of gilt exposures allows investors to gain access to the short-dated end of the UK government bond market, which looks set to benefit from a lengthy period of accommodative monetary policy by the Bank of England in the wake of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union. It also strengthens Lyxor’s position in the UK bond market which has been steadily expanding recently, with short-dated gilts making up 21 per cent of all UK Bond ETFs.
The wider trend for Government Bond ETFs has been strong this year, attracting EUR4.7 billion in new assets as investors sought safe haven assets. The pricing of the Lyxor FTSE Actuaries UK Gilts 0-5Y (DR) UCITS ETF is consistent with Lyxor’s pricing strategy for core fixed income, which is designed to help investors deliver performance in an environment of record-low interest rates. Gilts and Treasury ETFs are priced at just 0.07 per cent and UK & US Corporate Bond ETFs at 0.09 per cent.
Chanchal Samadder, Head of UK and Ireland ETF Sales at Lyxor says: “We have a clear ambition to be the number one choice for core fixed income ETFs, providing investors with a wide range of low-cost tools to invest in what has become a very complex interest rate environment. This isn’t just about lowering fees, but providing the right exposures, and using the right replication. This new ETF means we can now offer low cost, physical exposure to all parts of the Gilts market”.
