Lazard Asset Management launches three new mutual funds


Lazard Asset Management has launched three new mutual funds: the Lazard International Equity Advantage Portfolio, the Lazard Emerging Markets Equity Advantage Portfolio, and the Lazard Managed Equity Volatility Portfolio.

The Lazard International Equity Advantage Portfolio and Lazard Emerging Markets Equity Advantage Portfolio are designed to offer investors core exposure to international or emerging market equities providing a consistent pattern of performance through various market cycles. Using a systematic, bottom-up security selection process, the funds seek to identify companies that have attractive risk-reward characteristics, while avoiding unintended exposures from tactical positions (eg, style, sector, region, or market capitalisation).

“By taking on active risk through bottom-up stock selection and diversification, these core equity funds seek to neutralize biases and deliver a stable return stream,” says Charles Carroll, Deputy Chairman and Head of Global Marketing at Lazard Asset Management.

The Lazard Managed Equity Volatility Portfolio is designed to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns while reducing portfolio volatility. The fund seeks to achieve its objective by employing a systematic, investment process intended to identify high quality companies with sustainable operating performance. Each company is evaluated daily using a multi-factor approach according to a proprietary ranking system developed by a team of seasoned investment professionals.
“Using an active, systematic process driven by fundamental inputs, the Lazard Managed Equity Volatility Portfolio seeks to keep pace in rising markets, while offering a buffer in falling markets,” Carroll adds.
