Lyxor Asset Management Launches New Multi-Manager Fixed Income Fund

Sep 30 2016 | 9:19pm ET

Lyxor Asset Management has debuted a new multi-manager fixed income UCITS fund that seeks to address the asymmetric risk faced by investors confronted with the very low returns generated by fixed income investments and the risk of a rise in interest rates.

The new fund, named Lyxor Evolution Fixed Income fund, was kicked off in August with $100 million in capital and now has approximately $180 million in AUM, according to a Citywire article. The fund is reportedly passported in ten countries and joins the nine funds already on on Lyxor’s Dublin-domiciled $2.4 billion alternative UCITS platform.

"Investors need to consider new approaches in order to capture yields that can still be generated in the current fixed income market environment,” Lyxor said in a statement announcing the launch. “Traditional fixed income investment levers, based on a long-only approach, are running out of steam, Evolution provides a response that is innovative both in its design and structure.’

The fund will offer investors a myriad of diversified strategies that generate exposure to  new and diversified performance drivers such as credit, carry, liquidity, volatility, momentum, and duration. 

Founded in 1998 and comprised of two wholly owned subsidiaries of Societe Generale Group, Lyxor is home to a series of hedge fund industry index products, asset management services and research. In total, Lyxor managed more than $127.3 billion in assets as of June 30, 2016.
