KeyQuant granted $30m mandate by US public pension fund
French systematic investment firm KeyQuant has been allocated $30m from the Colorado Fire and Police Pension Association (FFPA), taking the firm’s AuM to over $350m (€294.1m).
This $30m (€25.2m) investment was made from the association’s benefit investment fund, managing $4.6bn (€3.86bn) of assets.
The Paris-based quantitative boutique has earned additional allocations over the last year from qualified investors including European and US pensions, registered investment advisors and funds of hedge funds.
“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,” commented Robert Baguenault de Viéville, co-founder of KeyQuant.
“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.
KeyQuant was established in 2009.
