Lyxor signs distribution agreement with Intesa Sanpaolo Private Banking for Alternative UCITS range


Lyxor Asset Management (Lyxor) has signed a distribution agreement with Intesa Sanpaolo Private Banking, the wealth management arm of the Intesa Sanpaolo banking group, making Lyxor’s range of Alternative UCITS and Multi-Asset funds now available to private banking investors in Italy. 

The range of funds available through this agreement is comprised of Lyxor’s seven Alternative UCITS funds and two Multi Asset funds. 

Alternative UCITS funds allow for alternative investment strategies focused on delivering performance with limited correlation to markets, within the robust European UCITS regulatory framework. Lyxor’s Alternative UCITS Platform is one of the fastest growing platforms in the industry with USD2 billion in assets, recording a 30 per cent growth in 2015. Lyxor has been a pioneer in the liquid alternative segment with its managed account platform since 1998, combining the advantages of transparency and high liquidity with the performance potential of alternative strategies. 

The 2 Multi-Asset funds are internally managed by Lyxor with an innovative Risk Budgeting approach, associated with proprietary tactical models of trend following and macro signals. Within a risk- controlled investment process, the Lyxor Multi-Asset Range offers investors a dynamic asset allocation through different asset classes, depending on the market cycle and market structure. 

Amber Kizilbash (pictured), Head of Sales and Client Strategy at Lyxor, says: “Joining the exclusive range of brands distributed by Intesa Sanpaolo Private Banking is an important achievement for us. The selected absolute return strategies that we offer via our UCITS range can fully respond to the specific investment needs of private customers, particularly in the current uncertain market context”.
