Lyxor recently inked a similar deal to launch a UCITS-compliant long/short equity fund with New York’s Corsair Capital Management. Counting the new deal with Chenavari, Lyxor has seven alternative managers on its UCITS platform.

Founded in 2008 by Loic Fery, Chenavari manages approximately $5.4 billion across both credit and structured finance products.

The new fund has been passported for sale in ten countries, and will be offered on Lyxor’s Alternative UCITS platform in a number of currencies. Winton Capital Management, Canyon Capital Advisors, Tiedemann Investment Group, Capricorn Capital Partners, Corsair Capital Management and Lyxor.

Lyxor, already well known for its fund-of-funds and indexing businesses, hopes to grow its overall assets under management to €150 billion by the end of 2018.
