Our subsidiary Lyxor Asset Management offers asset management and advisory solutions in all asset classes. With a strong culture of risk management and research, Lyxor stands among the leaders in innovative, flexible and transparent asset management.
Lyxor Asset Management turns 20 this year. This means we have spent two decades embracing innovation. At the heart of our identity, Lyxor’s innovation is driven by our talented staff– from our research teams to our engineers – for the benefit of our clients.
The capacity to innovate has marked every major stage of our history. Our pioneering spirit has seen us conquer new markets and push the boundaries of the investment world: a case in point being Lyxor’s creation of the first alternative managed accounts platform in 1998, which offered investors a chance to reap the benefits of alternative investment performance in a transparent, liquid and secure format. In the same spirit, Lyxor pioneered the European ETF market, with the first ETF on the CAC 40 index in 2001 – a market that has since grown exponentially.
When the financial crises struck, Lyxor kept innovating with customised solutions to help our clients navigate the increasingly complex and unpredictable landscape.
Today, the asset management industry faces a period of deep change, where appetite for services and advice will prevail over the demand for products. It is now that our capacity for innovation can help build the savings landscape of tomorrow: designed for institutional clients of course, but also for our private clients, distributors and savings professionals.
Happy birthday Lyxor!
