The SGI Merger Arbitrage II Index aims to provide an exposure to the performance of strategies called "Merger Arbitrage", which consist of the acquisition of shares in American and European listed companies subject to takeover bids. This index is based on the expertise of Lutetia Capital, one of the most renowned and awarded merger arbitrage team in Europe.


The components of the strategy are selected by specific criteria (geography, minimum size, liquidity, type of operation, sector diversification) based on its performance target and volatility. The exposure to the strategy is achieved through a daily investment with a 200% leverage on a UCITS compliant managed account -Lyxor-Lutetia Merger Arbitrage Fund (LYLMAIE)- dedicated to the Index.
