Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – The French asset manager Lyxor and the high profile US hedge fund manager Och-Ziff are launching the Lyxor / OZ U.S. Equity Opportunities Fund. The fund is a new long/short equity strategy focusing on special situations in the US. The fund will be launched on Lyxor´s Alternative UCITS platform according to a press release.

The fund´s focus will be on long and short investment opportunities in the US market with the ambition to generate consistent positive absolute returns to a low volatility. The investment strategy builds on an opportunistic value-oriented method for capital allocation with a focus on strong fundamental relationships. The method aims to profit from mispricings that occur in different corporate events such as mergers, spin-offs, management changes and restructurings.

Och-Ziff was founded in 1994 and offers alternative investment products going back 21 years. Current AuM stands at 44.4 billion USD. The company has a team of 23 american equity managers.

The fund will be marketed in 10 different countries and will be open to subscription on the Lyxor Alternative UCITS platform with a minimum investment of 10 000 USD.
