Lyxor Asset Management and Koris International are teaming up to design investment solutions for distribution across Europe based on funds available on the Lyxor Managed Account Platform (MAP).
The partnership combines Lyxor’s MAP, which applies liquidity and systematic risk control to alternative strategies, with Koris International’s quantitative asset allocation technologies, and will last for at least two years.
The investment solutions resulting from the partnership will be tailored to 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. Lyxor will manage the portfolios while Koris will act as an independent advisor. The two firms will jointly market the investment solutions to European investors and money managers.
Christophe Baurand (pictured), managing director and global head of business development at Lyxor, says: “We are delighted to step up a long-term business relationship with Koris International, a recognised player in the European industry. This new partnership highlights the leadership of Lyxor’s Managed Account Platform, which provides a comprehensive framework for hedge fund investing. Lyxor’s platform is amongst the largest in the industry in terms of assets under management as well as number and variety of managers and strategies available.”
