The Lyxor ETF range offers in depth & efficient access to the mid and small cap universe, enabling investors to capture the risk premium from small & mid cap equities over the long term.
According to the company, in Europe, small caps have outperformed Large Cap by 4.8% on an annualised basis over the last 10 years.
Passive investment solutions for small and mid caps, proves as relevant as for large caps as, consistent generation of outperformance by active managers is hard to find in this universe.
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.”
