Wilshire, a global investment technology and advisory company, and Rayliant, an Asia-focused fund manager and provider of quantitative investment solutions, are partnering develop a new generation of quantitative strategy indexes to give institutional investors access to new passive investment opportunities. 

The new ‘FT Wilshire’ indexes will be available in early 2022.

Mark Makepeace, Chief Executive of Wilshire, says: “Collaborating with Rayliant will allow us to fast track the development of new indexes which combine established quantitative approaches with more innovative machine learning techniques. Rayliant’s considerable expertise and experience of quantitative investment in China and emerging markets complements our deep knowledge of the US and global markets. This puts us in the unique position to offer innovative index solutions to global institutional investors.”

Jason Hsu, Chief Executive of Rayliant, says: “I’m excited to partner with Mark Makepeace and his team – they are true disruptors in the strategy indexing space. We look forward to helping Wilshire leverage our pedigree in machine learning and robust technology to develop a new and exciting range of systematic strategic beta for global investors.”
