Lyxor Asset Management partners with Koris International
Lyxor Asset Management and Koris International have launched a commercial and marketing
partnership to design investment solutions for distribution across continental Europe, based off the
funds available on the Lyxor Managed Account Platform.
The partnership will last at least two years. It combines Lyxor’s managed account platform, which applies liquidity and systematic risk control to alternative strategies, with Koris International’s quantitative asset allocation technologies.
The investment solutions resulting from this partnership correspond to the specific needs of institutional and high net worth clients.
The product will be tailored to small institutions, family offices and private banks seeking asymmetry in the risk-return profiles of their investments, as well as access the alternative investment strategies available on the Lyxor Managed Account Platform.
The alliance and pairing of the two firms’ offerings signals the beginning of a new era for funds of hedge funds designed to promote excellence in fund selection, risk control, liquidity as well as dynamic quantitative asset allocation, a statement said.
Lyxor will manage the portfolios and Koris International will act as an independent advisor. The firms will jointly market to European investors and money managers.
Jean-René Giraud, founding partner and Chief Executive officer at Koris International said the partnership is a “reflection of the successful cooperation that has been running for almost a decade with Lyxor Asset Management”. “Managed accounts are a smart and comprehensive way to gain access to the skill set of hedge fund managers in a transparent and controlled way.”
