LRI Group Teams With TAO Alternatives For New Liquid Alternative Launch

Sep 5 2017 | 10:11pm ET

Independent investment services company LRI Group has partnered with TAO Alternatives to launch a new liquid alternative version of a €250 million strategy managed since 2007.

The investment strategy is available to institutional investors in the Opportunities Fund, as a UCITS-compliant vehicle and Luxembourg SIF, the company said in a statement. CACEIS Bank Luxembourg is acting fund administrator and custodian.

TAO Alternatives is managed by fund managers Dr. Lukas Goetz and Achim Motamedi. Goetz is an experienced fund manager who formerly worked as senior portfolio manager at UNIQA Capital Markets and has been managing Absolute Return Portfolios for many years. He is a certified alternative investment analyst and has been widely published in journals such as the European Journal of Finance and European Financial Management.

Motamedi was formerly head of tactical asset allocation at UNIQA Capital Markets, where he managed absolute return portfolios. He is an active member of the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) and certified alternative investment analyst

“We are thrilled about working with TAO Alternatives,” said Michael Sanders, managing director of LRI, in the statement. The ever-changing institutional landscape and high demand of asset managers, pension funds, family offices and insurance companies, shows that liquid alternatives are an attractive option for regulated investors due to the lack of liquidity and transparency of traditional hedge funds.”

Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Luxembourg, LRI Group is an independent investment services company providing asset managers with the structuring and management of traditional and alternative investment strategies. The firm has more than €10 billion in assets under administration across over 140 funds.
