Lazard Asset Management LLC Key Developments

Lazard Asset Management Launches Emerging Markets Income Fund

Lazard Asset Management LLC (LAM) announced the launch of the Lazard Emerging Markets Income Portfolio. The Lazard Emerging Markets Income Portfolio (the "Portfolio") seeks to deliver capital appreciation and income from exposure to emerging-market currency and local debt markets, with a short duration bias. The Portfolio is designed to have low correlation to broad equity and debt indices, which can provide favorable diversification benefits for investors, while its limited duration and credit risk profile distinguish its sources of returns from traditional fixed income assets. The identification of idiosyncratic macro-economic factors, policy variables, and market inefficiencies form the crux of the team's fundamentally-based approach. The Portfolio is based on an existing strategy that the team has managed since inception in 2011. The Portfolio is co-managed by Ardra Belitz and Ganesh Ramachandran, Managing Directors and Portfolio Managers on Lazard's Emerging Income team, which manages short duration emerging markets local currency and debt strategies. Ardra and Ganesh have over thirty years of combined experience in the asset class. This experience provides a unique advantage in their ability to identify well-compensated opportunities from a highly diverse, lowly correlated local market universe and produce superior risk-adjusted results. The Emerging Income team leverages Lazard's deep emerging market resources across multiple disciplines, including over 60 investment professionals dedicated to emerging markets. As of March 31, 2014, LAM manages over $60 billion in emerging markets equity and debt assets on behalf of clients globally.

Lazard Asset Management Launches First Liquid Alternative Equity Fund

Lazard Asset Management LLC announced the launch of its first US-based open-end liquid alternative equity fund, the Lazard Fundamental Long/Short Portfolio. The Lazard Fundamental Long/Short Portfolio utilizes a long/short equity strategy that seeks superior risk-adjusted returns. The Portfolio employs fundamental bottom-up stock selection, focusing primarily on US-listed securities. It seeks to take long positions in equities of companies believed to have strong and/or improving financial productivity that have attractive valuations, and short positions in companies with deteriorating fundamentals, unattractive valuations, or other qualities warranting a short position. The Portfolio is based on the existing Lazard Fundamental Long/Short strategy, which Lazard has managed for over three years. The Portfolio Management team is led by Dmitri Batsev and Jerry Liu, who leverage a dedicated and highly experienced US equity investment team, comprising 24 investment professionals who, on average, have spent eighteen years in the industry and twelve years at LAM, as well as the firm's broader research resources.
