Societe Generale Open the London Stock Exchange to celebrate the launch of their new leveraged Exchange Traded Products



In what was the UK’s largest ever one-day product launch in the history of the exchange, Societe Generale was honored to be invited to Open the Market at the London Stock Exchange, celebrating the launch of 74 new leveraged Exchange Traded Products.

Zak de Mariveles, Managing Director, Societe Generale commented: “With over £2.8bn traded over the LSE last year, leveraged ETP’s are a popular way to gain leverage to a wide range of popular underlyers. Societe Generale is one of the largest European financial services groups with significant experience in providing ETPs across Europe. By broadening our offering in the UK we look forward to helping provide those investors that seek to gain leverage within their portfolios with an even greater choice and flexibility.” 

The launch included products covering four of the world’s most prominent indexes - S&P 500, FTSE 100, DAX, and Euro Stoxx 50. The launch also includes coverage of hard commodities (oil, silver, gold, copper and natural gas) and currencies (GBP/USD, EUR/USD and JPY/USD). Investors can use the ETPs to take long or short positions and can leverage returns between two, three and five times over on a day-by-day basis.
