ROBERT J. ANSLOW, Chief Investment Officer, is a managing partner and co-founder of GlobeFlex Capital, LP. Mr. Anslow guides the firm's investment management process with 20 years of experience and a recognized position as one of the first to apply systematic portfolio management to international investing. In creating GlobeFlex, Mr. Anslow and Marina Marrelli chose a hand-picked team of investment professionals, most of whom had worked together for years. The stability of their shared experience and common goals took GlobeFlex quickly through the startup phase to reach $1 billion under management within three years. Prior to founding GlobeFlex, Mr. Anslow built the first systematic process for international investing at Nicholas-Applegate Capital Management. As Director of the six-person Systematic and Global Portfolio Management/Research Group, he was responsible for the investment of $6 billion in US and international assets for nearly eight years. Their success brought widespread acceptance of systematic investing within what was then a traditional management firm; when he departed to found GlobeFlex, nearly half of Nicholas-Applegate's assets were managed systematically. Mr. Anslow was previously responsible for systematic portfolio management and research processes at two major investment institutions: the California Public Employee's Retirement System (CalPERS) and BayBanks Investment Management of Boston. He is a former member of the Wharton Fellows' Advisory Board and the Investment Management Institute Advisory Board. He received his BS degree in Economics from the University of the Pacific. Mr. Anslow is married to GlobeFlex co-creator Marina Marrelli. Profile
