Winton Reaches $1B Mark for the First Time

The London-based hedge fund Winton, has reached the $1 billion mark for the first time in a sign that traditional stock managers may come under increasing pressure from computer-driven rivals.
Winton, which manages about $25bn in total assets using secret computer codes that analyse patterns in markets, has seen large inflows into its long-only equities fund this year, which was launched in 2009 to enable the hedge fund to trade in stocks alongside the futures markets that make up the bulk of its investments.
The Winton Global Equities fund, which rose 29.8 per cent in 2013 and is up 7.5 per cent so far this year, has won a number of large investments from US public sector pension funds in the past three months, including $200m from the state of Colorado’s police and firefighter pension fund.
