Societe Generale launches UK ETP range


Societe Generale has listed 74 ETPs on the London Stock Exchange, offering exposure to equities, commodities and currencies. 

The launch is one of the largest seen in the leveraged ETP sector, in the UK. It includes products based on the S&P 500, FTSE 100, DAX, and Euro Stoxx 50.

The launch also includes coverage of hard commodities (oil, silver, gold, copper and natural gas) and currencies (GBP/USD, EUR/USD and JPY/USD). Soc Gen writes that investors can use the ETPs to take long or short positions and can leverage returns between two, three and five times over on a day-by-day basis.
The ETPs were developed as part of Societe Generale’s strategy to diversify its broadly-based offering of investment solutions and meet growing investor demand for liquid products with a broad choice of leverage. The products are priced to be highly competitive against competing ETPs.
Zak de Mariveles, Managing Director, Head of UK IFA Sales, Societe Generale says: “With over GBP2.8 billion traded over the LSE last year, leveraged ETPs are a popular way to gain leverage to a wide range of popular underlyers. Societe Generale benefits from a solid expertise in providing ETPs across Europe. By broadening our offering in the UK, we look forward to provide sophisticated retail and professional investors that seek to gain leverage within their portfolios with an even greater choice and flexibility.”
