Amundi adds Complus strategy to alternative platform


Amundi Alternative Investments partners with Hong Kong based manager Complus Asset Management to make Asian focused global macro strategy available on its AIFM compliant platform.

The Asian macro strategy has been launched by Complus in 2011. The investment team aims to leverage its trading experience in these markets to lead a fundamental as well as a market dynamic analysis building therefore a balanced portfolio using relative value and directional positions.

Michael Hart, deputy chief executive officer and global head of Business Development of Amundi AI comments: “Complus has a well-established strategy, managed by a very experienced local team. It is focused on fixed income/rates and FX and is well placed to benefit not only from existing market inefficiencies in regional fixed income markets but as well as the repercussions of policy divergence.

“We feel that asset size has become a significant hindrance in certain parts of the market. We strongly believe that Complus is at an optimal point in its development cycle; assets are large enough to offer business stability yet small enough to maintain the nimbleness required to capture market opportunities.”

Amundi AI manages over $7bn in assets, including $3.3bn for its Irish platform, that includes 17 liquid and transparent funds of various strategies.
