Lyxor Starts Fundamental Index Methodology ETFs

Société Générale subsidiary Lyxor Asset Management has launched four new exchange-traded funds that offer access to the Fundamental Index methodology, an alternative index methodology to traditional market-cap weighted indices. The new ETFs are tied to FTSE RAFI indices, which cover major sectors of the U.S., Europe, euro zone and Japan, and aim to beat traditional market-weighted indices that are less volatile.

The Europe, euro zone and Japan Lyxor RAFI ETFs are the first to be listed on the London Stock Exchange.

  • The Lyxor ETF FTSE RAFI US 1000 includes the largest 1,000 U.S.-listed companies by fundamental value, chosen from the constituents of the FTSE USA All Cap Index, part of the FTSE Global Equity Index Series.

  • The Lyxor ETF FTSE RAFI Europe is made up of European stocks represented amongst the constituents of the FTSE RAFI Global ex-U.S. 1,000 Index, essentially 1,000 non-U.S.-listed companies with the largest fundamental value, chosen from the constituents of the FTSE Developed ex-U.S. Index.

  • The Lyxor ETF FTSE RAFI Eurozone is made up of each euro-denominated nation in the FTSE RAFI Developed ex-U.S. 1,000 Index. Constituents within the FTSE RAFI euro zone Index come from Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.
