Lyxor Asset Management, Société Générale’s wholly-owned subsidiary, has launched two Ucits III funds aimed at giving a large audience access to the performance and diversification benefits of the hedge fund industry.

They are the Lyxor Hedge Fund Index Fund and the Lyxor Active Edge fund.

Lyxor has developed the largest platform of advanced managed accounts worldwide, consisting of more than 110 top-quality hedge funds, giving access to the full range of alternative strategies. The Lyxor platform represents a diversified investment universe, offering a wide choice of managers and strategies.

Lyxor says it is the first provider of Ucits III multi-manager alternative funds that bring full transparency, controlled risk and weekly liquidity to a hedge fund-linked investment.

The Lyxor Hedge Fund Index Fund is designed to mirror the performance of the Lyxor Hedge Fund Index – an investable, asset-weighted index tracking the performance of the hedge fund industry. Through one single onshore investment, this new Lyxor fund provides investors with direct exposure to hedge funds as opposed to synthetic replication.

Lyxor has also launched the Lyxor Active Edge fund, the first Ucits III diversified actively managed fund on the market. By allocating dynamically across strategies, the Lyxor Active Edge fund is well positioned to capture mid to long-term opportunities and has the capacity to make swift tactical adjustments in response to changing market conditions. In order to capture all opportunities, the fund applies a fine-tuned multi-strategy allocation across the 15 different Lyxor Hedge Fund Indices. This high level of flexibility enables maintenance of a portfolio that is highly specific to Lyxor’s top-down views.
