Lyxor Asset Management (Lyxor) has teamed up with Koris International for a two year partnership offering alternative investment solutions for distribution across continental Europe.
Lyxor will be managing the portfolios while Koris International will act as an independent advisor. Both firms will undertake the task of marketing the investment solutions to European investors and money managers.
Lyxor will bring its “state-of-the-art” managed account platform, which applies liquidity and systematic risk control to alternative strategies, while Koris International’s side will deliver quantitative asset allocation technology.
The solution is aimed at both institutional and high net worth clients and tailored to the needs of small institutions, family offices and private banks seeking asymmetry in the risk-return profiles of their investments, as well as access to the wide range of alternative investment strategies available on the Lyxor Managed Account Platform.
Both Lyxor and Koris International believe their alliance will create a “new era” for funds of hedge funds offering fund selection, risk control, liquidity as well as dynamic quantitative asset allocation.
Lxor’s Managing Director, Christophe Baurand, said the new partnership provides a comprehensive framework for hedge fund investing.
And, CEO of Koris International, Jean-René Giraud, added, “We are delighted to roll-out what we believe is a unique combination of asset allocation expertise with cutting-edge operations and infrastructure. 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.”
