Based in Philadelphia and Boston, AJO is an independent, registered investment adviser founded in 1984 by Ted Aronson. The firm manages more than USD 26 billion in value-oriented quantitatively managed equity mandates for over 100 institutional clients worldwide (as at 31 December 2015).

US equities have always been one of UBP’s long-term calls, so we are extremely pleased to partner with AJO who have long-standing expertise in managing US large-cap value portfolios. AJO´s credentials and business approach match UBP’s and therefore provide investors with a unique investment philosophy.”
