Our History

Since 2007 Lumyna has been providing clients with leading investment solutions to meet their diverse needs.

At the core of this offering is our pioneering and market-leading Alternative UCITS funds platform – Lumyna Funds; bringing the best of the alternative investment universe to the regulated and liquid UCITS marketplace.

Our business began over a decade ago under the guidance of Merrill Lynch. We recognised then the huge structural shift in investment markets that was about to take place and anticipating this, partnered with our first leading hedge fund, Marshall Wace, to launch one of the very first ‘Alternative’ UCITS funds in November 2007.

The business grew and developed under the ownership of Bank of America. Partnerships with AQR, York Capital and others soon followed.

In 2014 we established our own management company to manage both our growing UCITS fund range (formerly Merrill Lynch Investment Solutions), and our long-standing non-UCITS funds business.

In November 2018 the latest stage of our evolution began, as the business was acquired by Generali Group. The acquisition forms an important step in the build-out of Generali Group’s multi-boutique growth strategy.

For our clients the acquisition provides a continuity of the existing fund range; the assurance of service from the existing team of investment professionals; and the confidence brought by the backing of one of the largest Insurance and Asset Management companies in Europe.

The new name, Lumyna, represents the renewed pioneering spirit we bring to the market, alongside the institutional controls and processes that has helped us become the largest Alternative UCITS funds platform and win multiple awards over the past decade.

Our business is now well set for the next chapter in our evolution. Bringing new funds, new strategies, new asset classes, bespoke solutions, and our unwavering commitment to serving you, our clients.
