QIM's Funds Up In January

Feb 7 2011 | 2:01pm ET

Whether trading commodities or equities, Quantitative Investment Management did better than most of its peers in the first month of the year.

The Charlottesville, Va.-based firm said that its flagship Quantitative Global Program rose and estimated 0.3% last month in spite of "a difficult month" for commodity trading advisers. It would have done even better, QIM said, had it not been for the unrest in Egypt, which took its toll late in January.

The $4.5 billion Global program lost 3.4%.

Meanwhile, QIM's Quantitative Tactical Aggressive continued its hot streak from last year, when it rose 15.16%. The $500 million equity long/short vehicle was up an estimated 6.17% in January.
