We are committed to working with organisations to improve the opportunities for employment within the asset management industry for younger people with diverse backgrounds. To this extent, Lyxor Asset Management are involved with the following initiatives; 

Sutton Trust- Pathways to Banking & Finance

Launched in 2017, Pathways to Banking and Finance is a pioneering programme that seeks to improve social mobility in banking and finance by providing industry access to high-achieving students from disadvantaged backgrounds and building essential life skills.

Supporting our staff, supporting others

Giving back to the community helps staff develop important skills whilst benefitting those less fortunate. Staff member participation in charitable endeavours is therefore actively encouraged at Lyxor Asset Management, with employees regularly taking part in sponsored activities or other charitable work. Flexible working options help our staff maintain their charitable commitments alongside their core Lyxor Asset Management responsibilities.

Help for Children

A global foundation, HFC has a history of strong support from the hedge fund industry (so much so, many refer to it as “Hedge Funds Care”). HFC provides substantial grants to several charities with the remit of effectively preventing and treating child abuse around the world.

Operation Christmas Child

Lyxor Asset Management is a regular supporter of Operation Christmas Child. Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child has been delivering gift-filled shoeboxes to underprivileged children around the world. It is now the UK’s largest children’s Christmas appeal. The idea is simple. Children and adults wrap and pack shoeboxes with a range of gifts and take them to a convenient ‘drop-off point’. Each shoebox is an unconditional gift, given to a child with nothing asked for, or expected in return.
