Ex-GSAM Exec Hua Raising Institutional Capital For Quant Investments

Oct 17 2017 | 9:41pm ET

Former Goldman Sachs Asset Management CIO Ronald Hua is reportedly raising institutional capital for quantitative investments at a new hedge fund.

Hua joined Qtron Investments in July 2017, according to his LinkedIn profile. Although Hua is listed on the company’s website as a founder, Qtron was formed last year by former PanAgora Asset Management director of equities Dmitri Kantsyrev. 

Based in Boston, Qtron offers a range of global equity, smart-beta and emerging markets strategies and manages approximately $120 million, according to an article in Bloomberg. Further details, such as how much he is trying to raise for the fund, were not disclosed. 

At Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Hua oversaw more than $10 billion in assets as chief investment officer for active equity within the firm’s quantitative group. 

Hua worked with Kantsyrev on dynamic equity products during a stint as CIO for equities at PanAgora from 2004 to 2011. He was a portfolio manager for Putnam Investments before that, and began his career as a quantitative analyst for Fidelity in 1994.
