Lyxor Asset Management named Fabian Pavlowsky as head of quantitative strategies within the Societe Generale subsidiary’s Hedge Fund Research team based in New York.

Pavlowsky joins Lyxor after serving eight years at New York-based Financial Risk Management where he most recently was responsible for manager selection in directional trading strategies, a Sept. 16 press release said.

According to the announcement, the 12-year old firm also recently hired Francis Chu as its head of discretionary trading strategies for the hedge fund team as well.

Currently, the Paris-based firm offers tracker funds, structured, alternative and absolute return funds to its clients. As of June 30, Lyxor had nearly $88.6 billion (EUR) or $114.8 (USD) billion in assets under management.
