Interviewed with Ashler last year. Typical interview with a PM consisting of why HF, why Ashler (deep value a big focus), and two stock pitches (one long, one short). I knowingly picked two stocks they held long, and we spent ~15 min discussing the pitches. What position is this for?

No offer. Nothing went wrong to be honest, it came down to experience. They were looking for someone a bit more senior. Nothing but good things to say about my experience interviewing with Ashler. Great fund.

Deep value meaning they don't neutralize growth and value factors? I assumed they just use the citadel risk model.

It seems like a platform where people from SM background would have an easier time fitting in vs GE/surveyor.

I was told by someone at Citadel that CGE, Surveyor and Ashler are all doing the exact same thing, but because of how successful Citadel's equities strategy has been, they started having too many pods that covered the same companies. As a result, management teams would get overwhelmed meeting with tons of different people that all were from Citadel, so they decided to start branding teams under Surveyor and (more recently) Ashler. That way, management teams would talk to a reasonable number of people from each "firm" even though in reality, they're all the same. Would be curious if other people have heard different things because the website does characterize Ashler a bit differently
