Finvex Group acquires LuxHedge

Monday, August 31, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - Finvex Group, the Brussels based independent financial consulting boutique, has acquired 100% of LuxHedge S.A., the Luxembourg-based alternative UCITS funds data provider.

Finvex Group specializes in risk based investment solutions. The company advises institutional investors on optimal portfolio construction and balanced investing, using its advanced proprietary risk technology and framework. Finvex Group also owns a successful range of sustainable index solutions that are used for public and private offers throughout Europe and Asia.

LuxHedge S.A. is a Luxembourg data provider on funds that offer an easy access to alternative investment strategies within a UCITS framework. Today, there are more than 1,200 alternative UCITS throughout the EU and LuxHedge S.A. tracks them all in an exhaustive manner. Aggregate assets under management represent nearly €400bn and keep growing.

"We believe the data and know-how of LuxHedge S.A. will allow us to further enhance our offering to investors", says Benedict Peeters, CEO of Finvex Group. "LuxHegde information on true alternative UCITS funds is essential for our clients", says Christophe Pecoraro, partner and co-owner of Finvex Group "in a market where a long bull run in fixed income and equities is likely to come to an end, maybe even as we speak".

"We are very pleased to become part of Finvex Group", adds Daniel Van Hove, CEO and founder of LuxHedge S.A. “This acquisition comes at the right time and will help combining strong analytical and proven investment management/advisory skills between both companies. This synergy can only add value and better serve investment professionals and well-informed investors interested in this growing asset class”.

"Alternative UCITS funds aim at delivering returns in any market conditions while being more regulated, transparent and liquid than traditional hedge funds" says Alexandre Millet, Director at LuxHedge, "that makes those all-weather funds suitable for all investors".

Parties aim to bring new solutions to the market that include optimal portfolios of alternative UCITS funds.
