20 years of innovation

Lionel Paquin portraitLyxor Asset Management turns 20 this year. This means we have spent two decades embracing innovation. At the heart of our identity, Lyxor’s innovation is driven by our talented staff– from our research teams to our engineers – for the benefit of our clients.

The capacity to innovate has marked every major stage of our history. Our pioneering spirit has seen us conquer new markets and push the boundaries of the investment world: a case in point being Lyxor’s creation of the first alternative managed accounts platform in 1998, which offered investors a chance to reap the benefits of alternative investment performance in a transparent, liquid and secure format. In the same spirit, Lyxor pioneered the European ETF market, with the first ETF on the CAC 40 index in 2001 – a market that has since grown exponentially.

When the financial crises struck, Lyxor kept innovating with customised solutions to help our clients navigate the increasingly complex and unpredictable landscape.

Today, the asset management industry faces a period of deep change, where appetite for services and advice will prevail over the demand for products. It is now that our capacity for innovation can help build the savings landscape of tomorrow: designed for institutional clients of course, but also for our private clients, distributors and savings professionals.

Happy birthday Lyxor!

Looking forward, we will continue to innovate and grow the ETF landscape for all our clients.

Pension funding: and so, what about us innovating?

"Although it has garnered less media attention than the likes of the labour, tax or rail reforms, it promises to be one of the biggest challenges for France in 2019. I am speaking, of course, of the reform of the country’s pension system..."
