Analytic Investors, the quantitative money manager in Los Angeles with roughly $1 billion in assets under management, is renewing efforts to expand sales of its retail mutual funds.
Analytic plans to increase its marketing staff and will become part of the 46-fund United Asset Management, or UAM, fund family, according to a company official and recent SEC filings. Analytic, currently a subsidiary of UAM of Boston, hopes the moves will help it increase sales of two of its high-performing funds, the Analytic Enhanced Equity and Defensive Equity funds. Although Analytic is a subsidiary of UAM, its funds have been separately marketed and distributed. Becoming part of the UAM family means Analytic funds will be marketed and distributed along with UAM funds.
