About Numeric Investors LLC

Numeric Investors is an institutional investment manager based in Boston, Massachusetts. We manage assets for clients globally, including corporate and public pension plans, foundations, endowments, and sovereign funds. Since our founding in 1989, we have remained committed and focused on efforts to consistently outperform our benchmarks to deliver excess returns over the long term for our clients. Strategies range from long-only, active extension and market neutral equities across geographic regions, investment styles and capitalization strata. Our long-standing commitment to carefully manage capacity has enabled us to focus on maximizing alpha for our clients.

In September 2014, Man completed the acquisition of Numeric. This provides attractive strategic, commercial and financial benefits, including the creation of a diversified, global quantitative investment platform represented by AHL and Numeric. As a result, Man's quantitative investment platform now offers clients a broad product range across alternative and long-only, trend following, technical and fundamental strategies. In addition, the acquisition further expands Man's footprint in North America, while enhancing its ability to achieve a strong risk-adjusted return on capital through an immediately accretive transaction.
