Paris, 3 March 2010 – NYSE Euronext announces that all ETFs traded on the NYSE Euronext Paris market of reference are, since 1 March 2010, eligible for the Deferred Settlement Service (SRD). This amounts to a total of 369 products versus 147 previously. Thanks to this evolution, investors, especially private investors, now have access to a broader scope of SRD eligible ETFs. They now have access to all Paris traded ETFs with leverage in a regulated and secure environment. Beyond its performance increasing effect, using the Deferred Settlement Service, when trading ETF, is an efficient portfolio diversifier.
However, as these newly eligible ETFs will not be admitted to trading on NYSE Euronext’s centralised borrowing and lending market, they are titled 'eligible to the SRD, long only'.
