Related Topics

Quantitative investment firm WorldQuant has launched WorldQuant Accelerator, an independent portfolio manager platform comprising approximately 15 teams, a number the company is committed to doubling in the next two years.

World Quant says the platform will continue to attract and retain exceptional independent portfolio managers, providing them with full access to the firm’s leading technology and capabilities, including proprietary impact modelling and back-testing technologies. Managers will benefit from the full support of WorldQuant’s established internal Operations, Execution and Data teams, allowing them the opportunity to grow and develop more rapidly in an entrepreneurial environment without having to manage the challenges associated with starting and running their own firms. The Accelerator platform will allow WorldQuant to further scale and diversify its Alphas, or trading signals, which will be deployed within WorldQuant’s global portfolio.
“We are seeing more and more interest from the industry’s top quantitative talent in joining established institutional investment platforms that have been built by quants for quants,” says Igor Tulchinsky (pictured), Founder and CEO of WorldQuant. “We have a proven track record of enabling distinguished managers to continue to grow while maintaining their independence. These managers get to focus fully on what they love doing most in an entrepreneurial and collaborative environment within our flat organisational structure.”
