More recently, he introduced the concept of Fundamental Indexation, built on a theoretical foundation which challenges some of the core assumptions of modern finance. Mr. Arnott previously developed quantitative asset management products and teams as Chairman of First Quadrant, LP, as global equity strategist at Salomon (now part of Citigroup), President of TSA Capital Management (now part of Analytic) and as Vice President at The Boston Company (now PanAgora).
