When the formal relationship with State Street ended, Acadian Asset Management began managing institutional assets directly. Since then, the firm grew to over $100 billion of assets under management and continued to be a pioneer in developing a variety of active management strategies for global investing.
Gary retired from Acadian in 2017 so he could devote more time to helping the next generation of entrepreneurs and young companies — mainly MIT spin offs — to achieve their full potential, on the global stage. After a year of following ECM’s progress closely as an active investor, Gary was elected to the ECM Board of Directors in early 2018. He also serves on the Board of Advisors of Thasos and the Martin Trust MIT Center of Entrepreneurship, among other ambitious enterprises.
Gary has been a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Portfolio Management. His award-winning article, “A New Route to High Returns and Lower Risks,” published in the journal in 1975, was one of the first to advocate significant allocations of the assets of US–based funds to global equities. His other publications include articles in the Financial Analysts Journal, Columbia Journal of World Business, Management Science, The Wall Street Journal, and The MIT Sloan Management Review, as well as chapters in many books.
Gary currently also serves on the boards of several major non-profit institutions. He has a particular interest in development economics and emerging markets, gained in part from his extensive research experience in India. He earned a doctorate from MIT’s Sloan School of Management, where he also served on the faculty.
