Lazard Asset Management has expanded its quantitative equity platform with the addition of a San Francisco-based investment team.
The new US Systematic Equity team comprised of Oren Shiran, Philip Summe, Stefan Tang, and Seavan Sternheim, focuses on capturing fundamental insights within a quantitative framework.
The systematic investment process employed by the team utilises a multi-model approach to consistently identify and capture compelling inefficiencies. Currently, the team invests in companies listed in the US with a market capitalisation below $10bn and manages longonly and long/short portfolios.
The team joins LAM from Baylight Capital, which they founded in 2013. Each team member brings with them diverse knowledge and experience across disciplines, including financial markets, mathematics, and computer science. a
