Winton Long-Only Fund Joins Billion-Dollar Club

Jul 28 2014 | 11:10am ET

Winton Capital Management’s long-only stock fund has topped US$1 billion in assets for the first time.

The five-year-old Winton Global Equities Fund has been the beneficiary of a number of mandates from U.S. public pension funds over the past three months, as well as of its continued strong performance: The fund, which rose nearly 30% last year, is up 7.5% this year.

Winton manages a total of US$25 billion.

Winton last month launched two regional versions of the long-only strategy, one focused on North America and the other on Europe.
