This fund aims to benefit from the expected further re-rating of the sector. Indeed, structural improvements in the eurozone such as an end to external deficits, a much better balance between fiscal tightness and accelerating structural reforms make euro-zone financial assets particularly attractive. The LYXOR UCITS ETF EUROSTOXX BANKS is an investment solution to help investors benefit from this improving environment.
At the same time, the ECB should continue to be supportive for the financial sector. Moreover, the Asset Quality Review may help investors gain better confidence in euro-zone banks, which continue to offer value. Consequently, Societe Generale research analysts do not expect a negative surprise from a major bank in the core euro-zone. As a result, Lyxor believes it is timely to make new tools available to investors so they can take positions in this sector.
