Euroclear and Lyxor launch e-data liquidity tool
Brussels based Euroclear and Lyxor Asset Management have teamed up to launch e-Data Liquidity, a tool that will enable fixed income players to assess the full liquidity of an asset.
Stephan Pouyat, global head of Funds and Capital Markets at Euroclear said: “The current market climate is prompting investment managers, treasurers, risk managers, insurers, collateral takers, central counterparties and other buy-side institutions to better manage their asset portfolios and strengthen their balance sheets, including liquidity buffers.
“e-Data is a modular tool and the liquidity module provides key indicators founded on our neutral settlement data and presented in its simplest form, relying on the infrastructure stamp of Euroclear.
“This first module, designed in close collaboration with Lyxor, focuses on supporting the management of fixed income and more specifically high quality liquid assets.”
Jean Sayegh, co-head of Sovereign Bonds Investments, Lyxor Asset Management commented: “Lyxor has always helped its clients understand and adjust to a rapidly changing environment.
“By teaming up with Euroclear we are participating in the current regulatory drive for market transparency and providing fixed income investors with an innovative tool helping them better manage their portfolios.”
The Euroclear group settled around €675trn in securities transactions in 2015.
Established in 1998, Lyxor Asset Management managed and advised €115.5bn in assets as of end March 2016.
