Lyxor unveils program for pension funds
French asset manager Lyxor AM has launched the Lyxor’s Enhanced Architecture Program (LEAP), a platform aimed at helping pension funds to achieve their investment objectives.
The platform relies on a combination of modules enabling pension funds to rise operational efficiency by cutting costs and gaining access to a selection of investment solutions, in order to improve their investment performance.
Lyxor, currently managing $8.5bn for a number of global institutional clients, also provides services such as strategic allocation, fund selection and management.
According to the firm, LEAP is to address the structural challenges currently facing pension funds (increased longevity, regulatory constraints) as well as circumstantial challenges (low interest rates, financial market volatility) which translate into large deficits for European retirement plans.
Amber Kizilbash, head of Sales and Client Strategy at Lyxor AM, said: “In a complex environment, pension funds must examine every aspect of their business to ensure they are functioning optimally.
“The implementation of LEAP, supported by Lyxor’s proven expertise in fund selection and structuring, enables greater efficiency and consistency in pension fund operation, which translates into direct benefits for future pensioners.”
Lyxor Asset Management managed and advised €115.5bn of assets as of end March 2016.
