Lyxor receivesTEEC certification for the Lyxor Green Bond (DR) UCITS ETF

Lyxor Asset Management has received the TEEC (energy and ecological transition for the climate) certification for the Lyxor Green Bond (DR) UCITS ETF, the world's first ETF[1] offering investors exposure to investment grade green bonds. Launched two years ago on the basis of a Solactive index with support from the Climate Bonds Initiative, the Green Bond ETF is the first ETF to receive this label.

Introduced by the French government at the end of 2015 following the COP21, TEEC is the first national certification for private investment in the green economy. Awarded on the basis of exacting standards regarding the “green” quality of underlying assets, it guarantees that investment funds carrying this certification are committed to financing the green economy as well as ecological and energy transition. In addition to following the Green Bond Principles[2], TEEC certification requires a calculation of the "green part" of bonds, the total exclusion of certain activities (such as nuclear energy and fossil fuels) and the monitoring of ESG controversies that could affect the projects financed. It also requires an analysis of these projects' environmental impact.

TEEC certification for investment funds completes the range of financing instruments provided for by the Energy Transition for Green Growth Act of 17 August 2015. The aim is to channel savings to benefit energy and ecological transition and assure investors that the assets and projects financed meet the highest market standards throughout a project's life. It is in line with current efforts to create a European ecolabel for green financial products, making France a pioneer in green certification. To date, 28 European funds have been certified, with global assets under management of around EUR 5.5 billion[3].

Florent Deixonne, Head of SRI at Lyxor Asset Management: "Reflecting Lyxor's strong culture of innovation, the TEEC-certified Lyxor Green Bond (DR) UCITS ETF combines the transparency and liquidity advantages of passive management with the benefits of an active analysis of projects financed by the green bonds held in the portfolio, meeting the label's strictest quality demands".

The Lyxor Green Bond UCITS ETF is invested in an index of EUR or USD denominated investment grade green bonds representing more than 300 million, with a “green share” accounting for over 95% of assets financed according to the requirements of this certification. It is listed on Euronext, London Stock Exchange, Nasdaq-OMX Stockholm and Xetra, and has ongoing charges of 0.25%. A EUR hedged share class is also available.

[1] Launched on 21 February 2017, the Lyxor Green Bond (DR) UCITS ETF was the first Green Bond ETF in the world.

[2] The Green Bond Principles are guidelines to be followed voluntarily, calling for transparency and the disclosure of information aimed at increasing  the integrity of the green bond market by detailing issuance procedures. These guidelines cover such factors as: transparency over the types of projects financed, the project evaluation and selection process, management of funds allocated to these projects, and associated reporting requirements.

Key risks:

CAPITAL AT RISK: ETFs are tracking instruments: Their risk profile is similar to a direct investment in the Underlying Index. Investors' capital is fully at risk and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.


REPLICATION RISK: The fund objectives might not be reached due to unexpected events on the underlying markets which will impact the index calculation and the efficient fund replication.

COUNTERPARTY RISK: With synthetic ETFs, investors are exposed to risks resulting from the use of an OTC swap with Société Générale. In-line with UCITs guidelines, the exposure to Société Générale cannot exceed 10% of the total fund assets. Physically replicated ETFs may have counterparty risk if they use a securities lending programme.

UNDERLYING RISK: The Underlying index of a Lyxor ETF may be complex and volatile. For example, when investing in commodities, the Underlying index is calculated with reference to commodity futures contracts exposing the investor to a liquidity risk linked to costs such as cost of carry and transportation. ETFs exposed to Emerging Markets carry a greater risk of potential loss than investment in Developed Markets as they are exposed to a wide range of unpredictable Emerging Market risks.

CURRENCY RISK: ETFs may be exposed to currency risk if the ETF is denominated in a currency different to that of the Underlying Index they are tracking. This means that exchange rate fluctuations could have a negative or positive effect on returns.

LIQUIDITY RISK: Liquidity is provided by registered market-makers on the respective stock exchange where the ETF is listed, including Societe Generale. On-exchange liquidity may be limited as a result of a suspension in the underlying market represented by the Underlying Index tracked by the ETF; a failure in the systems of one of the relevant stock exchanges, Societe Generale or other market- maker systems; or an abnormal trading situation or event.

 

It is important for potential investors to evaluate the risks described above and in the fund prospectus which can be found on www.lyxoretf.com
