Lazard Asset Management has launched the Lazard Emerging Markets Multi-Strategy Portfolio, a mutual fund that will employ both emerging markets equity and debt strategies

“A multi-strategy approach provides clients with the expertise of individual portfolio managers who select securities for their strategies, with a separate, dedicated team that independently allocates capital to them,” said Charles Carroll, a deputy chairman and head of global marketing at Lazard.

Driving the fund’s asset allocation will be the investment team’s assessment of the current market and economic factors, along with the fund’s investment objectives and goal of reducing volatility.

Jai Jacob and James Donald are portfolio managers of the fund.
