Quantitative hedge fund shop AQR Capital Management has launched its seventh mutual fund as the firm’s mutual fund assets have crested $1 billion.
The Greenwich, Conn.-based firm rolled out its Managed Futures Strategy Fund yesterday, just a week after it launched a global-stock mutual fund, The Wall Street Journal reports.

All told, AQR manages $24 billion, almost 40% less than it did in 2007.
