Acadian Asset Management

201-500 employees

Systematic investing built on 35+ years of data-driven insights.
Company Overview
Acadian is a global investment manager that applies fundamental insights with a systematic lens to find attractive, unique investment opportunities across multi-asset class, ESG, alternative alpha, managed volatility, and long-only strategies. Our decisions are made using a cutting-edge array of disciplined, data-driven investment and portfolio construction techniques across stock-specific, macro, and peer forecasting models. In a world of data proliferation, meaningful conclusions can be difficult to reach. Our time-tested insights are built on over three decades of data and engineering, underpinned by the understanding that well documented, recurring behavioral errors drive irrational actions in financial markets. Structural challenges also limit market efficiency. Together, these factors create mispricing on a global scale. This is where we find our advantage.
