Who are Winton Capital?
Founded in 1997, Winton is a systematic investment manager that uses the scientific method to develop advanced investment systems. Through the statistical analysis and mathematical modelling of historical data, we strive to identify profitable investment opportunities for our clients.
We value discipline, curiosity, collaboration and ambition. Together, we want to show what science can achieve in investment management for the mutual benefit of our clients, society and ourselves. The traditional attitude to research and development used by pharmaceutical, engineering and information technology companies is, in our view, every bit as applicable in the world of finance. This requires us to have a large and well-organised team of trained professionals working on specific problems, all contributing to a central agenda.
Our people are bright, hard-working and passionate about what they do. In turn, we believe our approach to investment management, which does not subscribe to economic orthodoxy, can provide our clients with compelling diversification benefits. We have over $30 billion in assets under advice and employ over 400 people in nine locations around the world.

“We feel very strongly about encouraging women into science and promoting the outstanding research contributions female scientists continue to make worldwide.
