Lyxor has created 16 indices tracking hedge funds available on its hedge fund platform.

The group said the fully investable indices offer straightforward access to the global hedge fund industry.

Products on offer include 14 Strategy Indices, each corresponding to a specific hedge fund’s performance.

Global Index offers a combination of strategy indices and Thematic Index encompasses a wide range of alternative strategies that gives exposure to global emerging markets.

The benchmarks, owned by Société Générale Index, are asset-weighted and rebalanced monthly in line with investment guidelines.

The group added that it is to provide investors with a range of investment solutions including onshore and offshore investment vehicles.
