Lyxor Announces New Partnership with Quantmetrics for its AIFM Managed Account Platform
  • With this partnership, Lyxor will launch its first AIFMD-compliant strategy on the platform

Lyxor Asset Management announces a new partnership with Quantmetrics Capital Management to join Lyxor’s AIFM managed account platform. With this partnership, Lyxor will launch its first AIFMD-compliant strategy on the platform.

In a context where the environment for CTAs has significantly improved in 2014, this strategy could appear as a strong diversifier to deliver positive and uncorrelated returns to investors.

James Fowler, Founder of Quantmetrics, commented: “With the current environment, institutional investors have difficulties to source opportunities that can offer sustainable performance. Our strategies have been developed to generate returns across different market environments. This is especially true during volatility peaks, where we believe our niche strategies can exploit short term opportunities in highly liquid futures. We are pleased that Lyxor has chosen to partner with Quantmetrics, and we expect institutional investors’ portfolios to benefit from our strategy.”

With over 80 managers running a diverse range of alternative strategies, Lyxor’s Managed Account Platform gives access to a broad universe of best-in-class talent. Superior capabilities in hedge fund selection, portfolio construction and risk management, combined with a high level of customization in terms of transparency or liquidity provide value to investors and address their key decision criteria.
