EXQIM has launched Exqim Blue Fund, a multi-asset fund whose investment process is based on quantitative strategies and allocation.
EXQIM is a French asset management company based in Paris, approved by the AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers), founded by Jacques Lucas and three partners.
Jacques Lucas, President and founding partner, and Philippe de Gouville, one of the co-founders, headed for ten years the alternative and structured business of Société Générale Asset Management Alternative Investment. Under their responsibility, a team of 135 professionals built an investment management department, managing EUR50 billion invested in all asset classes through 300 structures.
With a 20-strong team of highly qualified mathematicians and computer scientists, EXQIM has built up partnerships with several top-tier universities.
EXQIM offers to investors, through Exqim Blue Fund, an original and innovative management process based on a series of quantitative, systematic and diversified strategies.
Exqim Blue Fund features a threefold diversification: firstly through different types of strategies, secondly through the wide range of underlying assets used and finally through the spectrum of trading frequencies. The fund exclusively invests in liquid and listed assets. It does not invest in exotic, structured and non vanilla financial products.
Based on a fully-automated management process, the fund targets a performance of 15% and EUR100 million of assets under management by the end of the year.
“A fully-automated quantitative management process is something I have wanted to develop for several years” says Lucas. “The innovative model that we have created with my partners is unique. It combines an investment universe comprised of listed, liquid and diversified asset classes with the most sophisticated quantitative decision processes. Thus, we meet our customers and investors’ needs, that is, performance, transparency and controlled volatility.”
