Lyxor launches government bond tracker

The EuroMTS Global Master Unit is part of a family of exchange-traded funds (ETF) belonging to the French asset manager. The index comprises six maturity band indexes ranging from one to three years up to over 15 years. EuroMTS Global Master Unit will be traded on Borsa Italiana, with liquidity provided by SG and Banca IMI from tomorrow.

The company said in a statement that the new product will "provide investors with a simple, cost-efficient way of diversifying their bond portfolios, securitising cash or hedging portfolio risk with a single transaction".

“The EuroMTS Global Master Unit is the first of its kind, the first to track the eurozone government bond market, and so represents an important development in the European ETF industry,” added Scott Stark, chief executive officer of MTSNext, the joint venture between Euronext and EuroMTS created to manage the EuroMTS index family.
