Innovation and a thirst for knowledge have driven our own breakthroughs in quantitative investing. Hoping to inspire both, we established the Jacobs Levy Equity Management Center for Quantitative Financial Research at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in September 2011. The Jacobs Levy Center provides research grants and fellowships, and aims to motivate research leading to practical applications that can improve everyone’s financial well-being. We also support the CFA Institute Research Foundation and the International Association for Quantitative Finance’s Fischer Black Memorial Foundation.
Supporting innovation and its application is also the primary motivation behind our gift to create the Jacobs Levy Equity Management Personalized Genomic Medicine Program. Affiliated with Atlantic Health System, the program integrates genetic medicine into everyday practice, enabling physicians to diagnose and design highly personalized treatments for rare diseases as well as common conditions. Jacobs Levy received the Jody A. Morrow Humanitarian Award from the American Cancer Society in 2014 for its role in creating this innovative program.
Jacobs Levy supports many other charitable efforts both within our community and nationally. We support several initiatives at Morristown Medical Center; sponsor a local soup kitchen at which staff members volunteer; and contribute to United Way and the American Heart Association.
We are also pleased to support a number of New Jersey-based cultural institutions, including a program of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center that sponsors a resident teacher to bring music, dance, and theater education to underserved communities. Each year, the firm donates to dozens of other charities selected by our staff.
In striving to fulfill our role as a responsible corporate citizen, we will continue to seek opportunities that will allow us to make a positive impact on our local and business communities.
“The establishment of the Jacobs Levy Equity Management Center for Quantitative Financial Research is an extremely significant event for the Wharton School and for the field as a whole.”
Thomas Robertson, Dean, The Wharton School
