John Liew: A Founder's Perspective

April 03, 2014

AQR Founder John M. Liew discusses how his lifelong passion for research has affected the way that he and his fellow cofounders have consciously shaped AQR’s culture. They not only conduct research themselves but actively encourage others — both inside and outside the firm — to do the same. "One of the things that's unique about AQR is we maintain a very high level of engagement with the academic community," he says.
