As part of Societe Generale's series of Meet the Experts presentations, Lydia Chan discusses exchange-traded funds.
Over the past 20 years, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have attracted significant interest from investors globally, gaining assets at an accelerating pace. We know that ETFs tracking the same index do not necessarily produce the same performance outcome, and it is necessary to know which objective criteria to use when selecting an ETF. We work with our experts on a daily basis to increase the efficiency of our ETFs. Our objectives are to maximise performance versus the index, minimise the cost of trading and minimise the tracking error versus the index. Lyxor is a pioneer in the market with this innovative approach to evaluating ETFs. Selecting the right product is a challenge for ETF investors, and Lyxor’s EI offers a solution to simplify investment decision.
