The alliance between the two firms and the pairing of their respective value-added offerings signals the beginning of a new era for funds of hedge funds designed to promote excellence in fund selection, risk control, liquidity as well as dynamic quantitative asset allocation. Investment solutions proposed by this partnership will combine each firm’s respective strengths, with Lyxor managing the portfolios and Koris International acting as an independent advisor. The two firms will jointly market the investment solutions to European investors and money managers.

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.”
