LOS ANGELES--()--Analytic Investors LLC, a leader in quantitative investment solutions for institutional investors, today announced that Paul Runge, an asset management executive with more than 30 years of experience, has been named a Director of Business Development.
“Paul’s experience working with pension funds and endowments will be especially valuable to meet growing demand from investors interested in world-class asset management.”
Runge will work with institutional investors in the United States, with an emphasis on public pension plans.
"Paul Runge is an outstanding addition to our business development team who understands the needs of institutional investors,” said Harin de Silva, President of Analytic Investors. “Paul’s experience working with pension funds and endowments will be especially valuable to meet growing demand from investors interested in world-class asset management.”
Runge is the second senior business development executive to join the firm in two months. In November, George Mathews, an asset management executive with 17 years of experience, was named Head of Business Development. The two senior appointments follow the firm’s successful management buyout, which closed on December 31, 2012.
Prior to joining the firm, Runge worked at GE Asset Management, where he was responsible for institutional sales and key client relationships for public, corporate, endowments and foundation plans in the western U.S. Earlier in his career, he held senior positions at Mercer Investment Consulting, Provident Investment Counsel and BNP/Paribas. Runge earned an MBA in Finance and Economics from the University of Maine and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Thiel College. He also completed the AIMSE/Wharton Business School Asset Management Program.
“Analytic Investors is a firm with a global reputation for excellence and a proven track record for delivering risk-adjusted alpha across all asset classes,” Runge said. “As an independent, employee-owned firm, Analytic Investors has even more opportunity to build new relationships with individuals and institutions. I look forward to working with George and the entire team at Analytic Investors.”
