The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:
The lessthan sign is a mathematical symbol that denotes an inequality between two values. The widely adopted form of two equallength strokes connecting in an acute angle at the left, <, has been found in documents dated as far back as the 1560s. In mathematical writing, the lessthan sign is typically placed between two values being compared and signifies that the first number is less than the second number. Examples of typical usage include 1⁄2 < 1 and −2 < 0.
Since the development of computer programming languages, the lessthan sign and the greaterthan sign have been repurposed for a range of uses and operations.
