Danny Yong, the Chief Investment Officer and founding partner of Dymon Asia has over 22 years of experience in trading FX, fixed income and index futures in Asia.

The Lyxor/Dymon Asia Macro Fund becomes the 13th fund on Lyxor's fast-growing USD4bn Alternative UCITS platform, illustrating investors' growing appetite for liquid and transparent investment vehicles.

Moez Bousarsar, Deputy Head of Hedge Fund Selection at Lyxor Asset Management says: "The Lyxor Dymon Fund identifies investment themes in a market that is rapidly growing with multi-asset class opportunities. Having traded through multiple investment cycles, Dymon has a strong, regional expertise in Asian markets, allowing the Fund to be well-positioned to react swiftly to market-moving information. As an asset manager, Lyxor's core capabilities are selecting and onboarding the best Alternative UCITS managers for our clients in their search for diversifying strategies in various market cycles."

We are excited and committed to be working in this partnership."
