Amid 2015’s financial market turbulence, demand for hedge funds increased dramatically. Asian high net worth individuals, their holdings typically lacking in global diversification, have demanded better management of portfolio volatility and the generation of returns during market drawdowns.

Enter Lyxor, this year’s Best Service Provider – Hedge Fund Platform. Lyxor has carved out a niche for itself as the one-stop shop for hedge fund solutions, boasting 70 funds on its shelf and US$7.8 billion in global investor assets, as of December 2015.

Lyxor stands out on a number of fronts. It provides a high level of transparency, a multitude of risk metrics and, perhaps most crucially for these Awards, Lyxor’s shortened on-boarding cycles have significantly reduced the time-to-market – an important point of difference for private banks that lack sufficient resources to conduct due diligence and monitor hedge funds.

Furthermore, Lyxor is sparing no expense in enhancing the quality of its client servicing, conducting both generic and tailored monthly product training and review sessions. Lyxor has also bolstered its global team of hedge fund analysts to 19 in response to the growing demand.

Gatekeepers in Asia have recognised the calibre of Lyxor’s alternatives platform, with stellar inflows confirming the fact that Lyxor is the deserving recipient of this year’s Best Service Provider – Hedge Fund Platform award.
