Barclays Global Investors (BGI) is America's largest money manager, providing structured investment strategies such as indexing, risk-controlled active products, and exchange traded funds to investors worldwide. For 35 years, BGI has been at the forefront of developing innovative investment ideas, applying science and technology to the investment process. Headquartered in San Francisco and winning first place in the SF Business Times' ''Best Places to Work in the Bay Area 2008" Awards (Large Companies category), the Barclays PLC subsidiary employs over 3,700 people globally and manages approximately $2 trillion in assets.





The Proprietary Analytics Group is responsible for proprietary tools (including optimization) used for portfolio construction, backtesting, attribution, and other applications.  We believe that Proprietary Analytics represents one of BGI’s key competitive advantages.
