Lazard Asset Management launches real assets fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Lazard Asset Management has launched the Lazard Real Assets and Pricing Opportunities Portfolio, which is based on Lazard’s existing real assets strategy.

LAM’s multi-asset team has managed the strategy for nearly two years, and aims to provide a multi-faceted defence against different inflationary forces while seeking to generate current income and capital appreciation.
 
The fund invests in liquid real assets, including real estate investment trusts (REITs), listed infrastructure companies, commodity futures, companies affected by commodity prices and broader inflation trends, and global inflation-linked bonds.
 
“After over 30 years of low inflation, conditions are in place for accelerating price increases, particularly in the United States,” says Ronald Temple (pictured), managing director and co-head of multi-asset at LAM. “We believe investors should evaluate their portfolios to ensure that they are protected against the possibility of a structural shift toward higher rates of inflation in the future.”
 
“No single asset effectively protects investors against the many potential sources of inflation,” says Jai Jacob, managing director and portfolio manager of the fund. “By leveraging liquid investment options, we believe a multi-asset approach can more effectively defend against a range of inflation drivers.”
 
The fund is managed by the Lazard Multi-Asset investment team, led by Jacob, which has an average of 20 years of investment experience and 12 years at LAM. The multi-asset team manages more than USD4.2 billion in assets across a wide range of solutions tailored to meet each client’s specific needs.
