Welton's Global Quantitative Equity Portfolio (QEP) program selected as "Systematic Equity Fund of 2015" by a distinguished panel of institutional investors at the Investors Choice Awards Americas.
CARMEL, California, April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Welton Investment Partners, a leading U.S.-based quantitative multi-strategy investment manager, won the prestigious "Systematic Equity Fund of 2015" award for the firm's Global Quantitative Equity Portfolio ("QEP") program. Welton's selection was announced at the Investors Choice Awards Americas ceremony at the Plaza Hotel in New York on April 12.
"We are extremely honored to receive this award for our newest strategy," said Dr. Patrick Welton, CEO and Chief Investment Officer. "This is especially gratifying because the independent judges included some of the most established institutional investors around the world, and their evaluation was based on not only quantitative performance but also qualitative criteria such as investment process, risk management, and team depth."
Launched in June 2015, Welton's QEP program is a low-capacity quantitative strategy that seeks to deliver market neutral absolute return performance within global equity markets.
Welton's longest-running program, the Welton Global Directional Portfolio (GDP), was also in contention for an award, "CTA Fund - Long Term Performance." Last year, Investors Choice honored GDP with the "CTA Fund of 2014" award. GDP's other recent recognitions include Bloomberg's "Top-10 Performing U.S. Hedge Funds" in 2014, and "Top-25 Midsize Hedge Funds Globally" in 2014.
