Lyxor launches ETFs tracking inflation expectations

Lyxor has launched the Lyxor USD 10Y Inflation Breakeven Ucits and the Lyxor EUR 2-10Y Inflation Breakeven Ucits ETFs.

These ETFs seek to provide exposure only to changing inflation expectations through the spread between traditional bond yields and those of inflation linked bonds, without the risk of changes in interest rates.

Both ETFs have a total expense ratio of 0.25%.

Francois Millet, head of ETF and Index Product Development at Lyxor, said: “Lyxor’s Breakeven Ucits ETFs gives investors exposure to the breakeven rate of inflation with the benefit of transparency and liquidity, thus turning it into a proper and investable asset class.”

Lyxor ETF managed €45.3bn in assets as of 31 March 2016.
