Lyxor Asset Management is planning to expand its exchange traded product range in Japan and the rest of Asia as investors in the region gradually gain more knowledge about the funds.

The subsidiary of Société Générale will introduce 15 new ETFs into Japan this year, and market them through online brokerages, Lyxor says. That will add to the asset management firm’s existing 13 ETFs currently available to Japanese investors. The new ETFs will feature funds already listed in Europe.
