Lyxor records substantial AuM growth supported by strong ETF inflows in 1Q 2014.

Wednesday, May 07, 2014
Opalesque Industry Update - Lyxor Asset Management has continued to strengthen its presence in the European ETF market, with net inflows of USD1.6bn during the first quarter of the year thus reflecting a 6% growth in AuM since end of 2013. Furthermore, Lyxor dominated the European ETF market in March with USD468 million of net inflows.

This growth is the result of a strong focus on the performance and quality of Lyxor’s ETF offering. As a sign of its commitment to investors, Lyxor has implemented since 2011 the first ETF Quality Charter to ensure that every Lyxor ETF complies with the highest standards of performance, liquidity, risk control and transparency.

“The strong performance of our ETF business line has been accompanied by a global growth of our active investments businesses riding on our expertise in alternative, quantitative and specialized products. We are extremely pleased with such growth which reflects our continued efforts to develop innovative and performing investment solutions”, said Lionel Paquin, CEO Lyxor Asset Management.

At the end of March 2014, Lyxor has reached USD 115bn of assets under management up 4% since 31 December 2013.
