Our EURO STOXX 50 ETF just turned 20

This week, Lyxor celebrates 20 years since it launched its EURO STOXX 50 ETF. To mark this anniversary, Lyxor Head of ETF and Indexing Arnaud Llinas and Stephan Flagel, Head of Indices and Benchmarks at Qontigo, discuss how both the index and the ETF have evolved during these two decades, and explain how ETFs continue to lead a technological revolution in the financial sector, in particular in the context of ESG and Thematic investing.
 
How significant is the 20th anniversary of the launch of Lyxor’s ETF on the EURO STOXX 50 index?
 
Arnaud Llinas: This is a very significant anniversary for Lyxor Asset Management. The EURO STOXX 50 is one of the top five indices in the world, alongside the S&P 500, NASDAQ-100, FTSE 100 and DAX. Twenty years ago was the right time to launch the Lyxor EURO STOXX 50 UCITS ETF. The EURO STOXX 50 was already the main benchmark for Eurozone equities in 2001, and in the past 20 years it has further cemented its role as the main index of reference for the region.
 
It’s been an outstanding 20 years for ETFs, up on average 20% a year in Europe in terms of assets, thanks to an ever-expanding range of investors — from individual investors to multi-asset managers, diversified portfolio managers, and more recently a significant growth with private banks and retail investors, who are more aware than ever of the advantages that ETFs bring.

Stephan Flagel: The history of the EURO STOXX 50 and of the Lyxor EURO STOXX 50 UCITS ETF runs parallel to our own histories as companies. We have grown together in the past 20 years, so this anniversary is especially meaningful for us. The outstanding feature over this period is how the ETF has established itself as a vehicle of choice for both strategic and tactical investments, and positioned itself right at the core of very different types of portfolios. Institutional, retail investors and traders today turn to ETFs as a natural choice. The move to passive investing has been nothing short of a quiet revolution that has democratised and facilitated investing.

The Lyxor EURO STOXX 50 UCITS ETF has been at the center of this revolution in Europe, contributing to the EURO STOXX 50’s position as the undisputed benchmark for Eurozone blue-chips. Since its inception in 1998, the EURO STOXX 50 index has closely tracked the fate of the best-known European companies and has been an accurate barometer of the region’s economic evolution. The index has also reflected the Eurozone’s changing industry dynamics: over the past two decades, financials, energy, utilities and telecommunications shares lost ground, while industrials, basic-materials, healthcare and consumer-related companies gained in weight.

Why have ETFs become so popular?
 
Arnaud Llinas: The quiet revolution that Stephan mentioned is the growing awareness of how much ETFs have brought efficiency, simplicity, transparency, and, importantly, low cost to financial markets. The Lyxor EURO STOXX 50 ETF is the perfect illustration of this. It is an exact representation of the entire index, without the friction or liquidity costs of buying the basket of 50 shares. For example, if a retail investor wanted to buy the shares of each company in the index, it would cost them around 2,500 euros. But investors can buy the ETF, giving them an investment in the complete EURO STOXX 50 range, for as little as 50 euros.  
 
Stephan Flagel: ETFs have brought great efficiency to investing, and for investors, the ease and affordability of trading an entire basket of stocks in one go is an unbeatable proposition. Within this efficient wrapper lies an underlying index that brings transparency, neutrality and a rules-based methodology to stock selection, giving investors certainty and clarity as to what they hold. ETFs are also these days a near guarantee of liquidity, which has been a huge benefit during the various crises we’ve seen on markets in the last two decades. Very few indices in the world offer the liquidity and tradability of the EURO STOXX 50. Just to illustrate this, nearly 30 million futures tracking the index trade every month, further supporting liquidity in its ETFs.
 
What does the future hold for the Lyxor EURO STOXX 50 ETF, and more broadly for ETFs?
 
Arnaud Llinas: ETFs have established themselves as an efficient investment model that continues to lead in technological innovation. Surveys point to increased usage in coming years, and investors will undoubtedly benefit from continued growth of the EURO STOXX 50.
 
The focus now is on the new generation of investors – especially retail investors and private banks – looking for cheap and efficient investment vehicles. To better respond to their needs, we also offer a low-cost Core EURO STOXX 50 ETF. This next generation of investors is also looking beyond traditional allocation by markets and sectors, which is why we are seeing more thematic investments, and also a boom in ESG investments.
 
On March 10th, the European Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (SFDR) went into force, requiring asset managers to disclose more information on ESG products and to describe the climate transition elements of each asset in the prospectus where applicable. This is a significant moment that will have an impact on the future of ETFs, and I can foresee that in 20 years from now, ESG and non-ESG regulatory requirements will merge, and that all indices will have to include extra-financial criteria.
 
Stephan Flagel: I think we’ll see significant growth in the ESG version of the EURO STOXX 50 index, with many pension funds and large asset owners adopting it in coming years as the benchmark for Eurozone portfolios. Sustainability is one of a dozen families built from the flagship EURO STOXX 50 and its methodology. As investing becomes ever-more sophisticated, I expect to see more solutions built around these index offerings, to the benefit of a wider public.
 
This will further enhance the EURO STOXX 50 universe and pave the way for more successful and popular ETFs. We are extremely proud and pleased with the success of the Lyxor EURO STOXX 50 (DR) UCITS ETF and look forward to continuing developing the Qontigo-Lyxor partnership over the next two decades.
