Colorado Fire & Police Pension Association Makes $30 Million Institutional Investment with KeyQuant
18 September 2017
PARIS, FRANCE – KeyQuant, the award-winning Paris-based systematic asset management firm, today announced a $30 million allocation from the Colorado Fire and Police Pension Association (FPPA).
After careful consideration of KeyQuant’s investment record and thoughtful approach to trend following and risk management, FPPA opted to invest. The allocation was made directly from the association’s $4.6 billion Fire and Police Members' Benefit Investment Fund.
“This substantial new investment from FPPA represents another important step for our firm as a wide range of institutional caliber clients continue to broaden their investment portfolios with us,” said Robert Baguenault de Viéville, co-founder of KeyQuant. “Since our firm’s inception, KeyQuant has won notable CTA awards and recognition, as well as a devoted following among quantitative investors seeking uncorrelated returns and emphasized crisis alpha, and we aim to continue that progress.”
The FPPA investment pushes KeyQuant’s growing Assets Under Management (AUM) above $350M. In addition to the FPPA commitment, KeyQuant has earned additional allocations throughout the last 12 months from a wide variety of sophisticated investors including European and US pensions, Registered Investment Advisors and well-established fund of hedge funds.
“We’re very excited that FPPA has chosen KeyQuant for this noteworthy investment and has put its trust in our firm’s alternative asset management expertise,“ said Raphaël Gelrubin, co-founder of KeyQuant. “Top institutional investors demand the best and that’s why we continue to focus our resources on meeting and exceeding their financial goals.”
