Prior to the market’s peak in October 2007, IQS managed nearly $38 billion in client AUM. It developed a scalable investing platform that enabled its 59 team members to implement more than 50 unique optimizations, and it created a solutions-oriented platform that could manage long-only, market neutral, 130/30 and TAA-related strategies.
