Lyxor Launches Kingdon Global Long/Short Equity

Constructive on long term stock-picking

The latest addition to Lyxor’s UCITS platform, which won The Hedge Fund Journal’s 2016 award for ‘the Leading UCITS Hedge Fund Platform’ is Lyxor/Kingdon Global Long/ Short Equity Fund. This is the 10th fund to be on-boarded, and asset growth to $2.4 billion since it started three years ago makes Lyxor one of the fastest growing UCITS platforms, according to Andrew Cocks, Head of Third Party Distribution at Lyxor Asset Management. Notwithstanding the speed of the ramp up, Lyxor is highly selective, only adding three or four funds per year on average, and quality is prioritised over quantity. For example, earlier this year, THFJ profiled the Lyxor Tiedemann merger arbitrage and event strategy UCITS.

Kingdon plugs an important gap in the growing suite of strategies: “Lyxor now has a fundamental global equity long/short fund with a wide geographic spread and variable directional bias,” says Cocks. Kingdon’s 30+ year track record has the type of institutional pedigree and longevity that Lyxor – which launched its first managed account back in 1998 – seeks. “We are seeing real client demand for this strategy, which has annualised at 13.7% since the inception of its offshore fund in March 1986 and provided downside protection,” says Cocks. Kingdon aims for attractive riskadjusted returns through the cycle, and rolling three-year returns have been positive 97% of the time.
