Leonteq announced today that it has entered into a new collaboration with Ixios Asset Management (Ixios) for the exclusive distribution of Ixios funds and the launch of a series of thematic AMCs.
As part of its long-term strategy to enrich its thematic investing universe, Leonteq has entered into an agreement with Ixios for the exclusive distribution of the entire range of Ixios funds into Switzerland and selected EEA countries. Through this collaboration with Ixios, Leonteq clients will have access to a specialised range of thematic long-only UCITS funds such as the following:
- Ixios Gold, a global equity fund which invests in gold mining companies
- Ixios Recovery, a flexible, cross asset, multi-thematic fund with a strong focus on undervalued assets
- Ixios Energy Metals, an equity fund which invests in companies mining and producing the metals which will enable the energy transition
All Ixios funds are constructed based on a rigorous fundamental analysis that aims at reducing downside risk for investors, a process which has been honed through decades of experience gained by Ixios fund managers in the research department of a large European investment company. Additionally, Leonteq and Ixios will be launching thematic AMCs in order to seize more tactical market opportunities.
Alessandro Ricci, Head Investment Solutions and member of the Executive Committee of Leonteq, stated: “We are pleased to announce the collaboration with Ixios as it confirms our strategic commitment to further diversify our offering in the thematic investing space. The expansion of our offering is a key aspect of our Growth Strategy 2026 and of the development of our ecosystem. As a highly specialised asset management company with a focus on investment themes, Ixios brings extensive knowledge and very credible offerings in this area.”
David Finch, CEO of Ixios, said: “I am delighted to enter into this comprehensive collaboration which marks a new stage in the development of Ixios. Leonteq’s breadth and depth of client base and its experienced multi-jurisdiction sales force will be a key asset for us in growing our AUM. We look forward to working closely together to market our existing funds and to develop a new range of research based thematic AMCs.”
Ixios is an independent asset management company based in Paris. Ixios specialises in thematic fund management and currently runs four funds: Ixios Gold, Ixios Energy Metals, Ixios Recovery and Ixios Smart Manufacturing with a total of approximately EUR 300 million AUM.
