Our story

An exhilarating journey 

We launched Lyxor’s Exchange Traded Fund business in 2001 when the market was in its infancy. Our unquenchable desire to break new ground has enabled us to discover new investment opportunities for our clients. Our pioneering spirit has propelled us to become one of Europe’s top three ETF providers (by assets under management). Our insatiable curiosity and indomitable spirit inspires innovation. Our team’s experience, passion, and expertise help us to deliver better results for our investors.

Like the pioneers we admire and respect, Columbus, Da Gama and Amundsen, we have vision. We introduced many of the market’s first ETFs and we are the longest standing European ETF provider in Europe. Always seeking the unknown, building on what we learn; we are the original pioneers.

“We have never been afraid to venture into new territories, or push the boundaries of what has gone before. Our only concern is what works best for our investors.”

Arnaud Llinas, Head of ETFs & Indexing
