Lyxor AM adds IKOS to its Dimension UCITS platform

Lyxor Asset Management has partnered with IKOS to launch the second alternative manager on its Lyxor Dimension UCITS platform reported Hedgeweek this week. The Lyxor/IKOS Futures Strategy Index Fund will offer investors access to a diversified managed futures strategy that uses a systematic quantitative global macro approach to trade highly liquid listed futures. IKOS is one of the industry’s most well known hedge funds and has been trading futures for over 15 years. The new fund strategy will offer investors diversified alpha generation across five asset classes including bonds, rates, equity indices, currencies and commodities using model categories such as macro, fundamental, trend and counter-trend. IKOS founder and CEO, Elena Ambrosiadou (pictured), said that the firm was excited to work with Lyxor to bring its flagship managed futures strategy to UCITS investors. “IKOS offers a strategic distinctiveness which aims to deliver consistent long term returns in different market environment [sic] and demonstrates low correlation with traditional asset classes and other CTA and hedge fund strategies,” commented Ambrosiadou. Lyxor CEO, Laurent Seyer, commented: “We are delighted to expand our offering by adding IKOS on the Lyxor Dimension UCITS Platform.” IKOS becomes the second fund to join the platform after Old Mutual Asset Management. Lyxor is believed to be planning more alternative UCITS fund launches over the coming months.
