Lyxor has announced a partnership with Quantmetrics to join Lyxor’s AIFM managed account platform. This will allow the launch of Lyxor’s first AIFMD-compliant strategy on the platform.

Lyxor’s managed account platform counts over 80 managers running various alternative strategies.

Established in 2003, London-based Quantmetrics’ expertise focuses on short term systematic strategies. The firm believes that alpha can be generated in different markets by identifying short term supply/demand imbalances.

Quantmetrics’ investment strategy will consist in a short-term commodity trading advisor program invested in all asset classes. The goal is to combine behavioural insights with quantitative analysis to capture alpha.

“It aims to exploit small and temporary price discrepancies in financial markets in the US, Europe and Asia by pursuing a short-term systematic trading of futures and spot FX positions”, Lyxor said.

James Fowler, founder of Quantmetrics, commented: “With the current environment, institutional investors are finding it difficult to source opportunities that can offer sustainable performance. Our strategies have been developed to generate returns across different market environments. This is especially so at times of crisis, where we believe our niche strategies can exploit short term opportunities in highly liquid futures.”
