Lyxor & Bridgewater plan sustainability fund

Lyxor Asset Management and Bridgewater Associates are to launch a new sustainability strategy

The strategy will use Bridgewater’s research to select public market assets aligned to the SDGs and will apply their “All Weather” asset allocation strategy. Expected to launch in March 2021, the strategy will be available in a UCITS format, and will be managed by Lyxor and sub-advised by Bridgewater.

Brian Kreiter, Bridgewater’s Chief Operating Officer, added “The journey of scalable sustainable investing is a strategic priority for Bridgewater and our clients. Using the same research process that we have developed over the last forty years, we have built a systematic process to engineer both the sustainability and financial characteristics of portfolios. We are excited to continue to collaborate with Lyxor in meeting the challenges of global investors.”
