WorldQuant University founder Igor Tulchinsky named to The Bloomberg 50

December 4, 2017
The list features the defining global leaders in finance, business, culture and entertainment.

WorldQuant University is proud to announce our founder, Igor Tulchinsky, has been included in The Bloomberg 50, a list of the influential people in politics, tech, business and entertainment who shaped global business in 2017.

As Founder and CEO of WorldQuant LLC, Igor has worked tirelessly to grow the company and its funds across the world. From Bloomberg:

“Tulchinsky’s $5 billion quantitative investment company has been restricted to managing money for Millennium Management LLC, the shop that incubated it, even as Tulchinsky built an empire spanning more than 600 employees in 26 offices around the world. But now the company has launched a joint venture with Millennium to manage outside capital from some of the world’s largest institutional investors, including pension and sovereign wealth funds that are set to kick in $200 million to $300 million each. In the past year alone, WorldQuant has added an additional 100 staffers and opened offices from Cambridge, Mass., to Ho Chi Minh City.”

Just as Igor continues to execute on his mission to grow WorldQuant throughout the world, we’ll continue to execute on ours - making high-quality education accessible worldwide.
