Lyxor moves three ETFs to physical replication

Lyxor Asset Management is switching three exchange-traded funds (ETFs), indexed to the CAC 40, IBEX 35 and DAX, to the direct replication method known as physical replication.

These three Lyxor funds, representing EUR5 billion of assets under management, will be managed as physical replication ETFs from 11 July 2014. This means that each fund will be directly invested in equities in the underlying indices.
 
Arnaud Llinas, global head of ETFs and indexing at Lyxor, says: “Our strategy is to offer our clients the most efficient ETFs by selecting the most appropriate replication method for each index. We believe we can now offer a better product on the CAC 40, IBEX 35 and DAX by using a direct replication method.”
 
Basing its strategy on the performance and quality of its funds, whilst remaining attentive to its clients’ needs, Lyxor ETF has seen assets under management increase by 13 per cent from the beginning of the year to the end of May, with net investment inflows of USD3.5 billion.
 
Lyxor has established itself in the number two slot for net investment inflows in the European ETF market both in May and since the start of the year.
