Lyxor builds out small and mid-cap equity ETF offering

Lyxor offers a comprehensive suite of ETFs providing exposure to European small and mid-cap equities.

With recent new launches, Lyxor becomes the first ETF provider to offer a complete range of European small and mid-cap equity ETFs both regionally and by country.

The provider’s latest funds in this suite are:

Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI Europe Small Cap
Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI Europe Mid Cap
Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI EMU Mid Cap
Lyxor UCITS ETF Germany Mid-Cap MDax
Lyxor UCITS ETF FTSE Italia Mid Cap
Lyxor UCITS ETF IBEX Mid 

Listed on NYSE Euronext, the funds add to the provider’s existing range of small and mid-cap ETFs linked to the MSCI EMU Small Cap, Russell 2000 and CAC Mid 60 indices.

The suite enables investors to capture the risk premium from small and mid-cap equities over the long term. In Europe, small-caps stocks have outperformed large-cap stocks by 4.8% on an annualised basis over the last 10 years.

According to Lyxor, passive investment solutions are as relevant for small and mid-cap stocks as they are for large caps, with consistent generation of outperformance by active managers typically hard to find.

Commenting on the launch, Marlene Hassine, Head of ETF research at Lyxor, said: “At a time when data points toward an improving environment and the opportunity for Europe to benefit from ECB action and structural reforms, we think that is opportune to propose high beta solutions that capture the performance of small and mid-cap stocks”.
