Engineering Equity to Work in Your Favour

What if you could find a way to identify which risks are most likely to move you closer to your goals – and which are most likely to be rewarded? What if you could engineer your equity portfolio to employ the most efficient strategies to help you reach your objectives?

With engineered equity, we provide a more rewarding approach to better compensate you for the risks you're taking.

Think Differently, Optimise Exposure
We see the space between active and index blurring, and this shift presents new opportunities for investors to find a better route to achieving their objectives. Whether you use alternative or customised indices, factor-based strategies or incorporate our proprietary quality score, we can help you gain the most effective exposure possible.

Our engineered equity approach optimises equity risk to:

  • Identify portfolio risks worth taking based on your goals
  • Analyse your existing portfolio to determine the true current risk
  • Create a best-in-class solution tailored for your needs

Collaborative Solutions in Action
Our global equity team works with clients to engineer equity factors to their best advantage. Solution agnostic, they create a range of answers – alternative index, factor-based and proprietary quality solutions – to address our clients’ unique and complex challenges. Some examples of our solutions include:

  • Focused investment, controlling for uncompensated risks: 
    • Intersection of high quality and dividend yield
    • Intersection of small size and value, eliminating companies with signs of distress
  • Funded index strategies benchmarked to Russell indices: 
    • Fundamental Emerging Markets Small Company
    • Fundamental Developed International Small Company

A Range of Vehicles to Meet Your Needs
Choosing the right vehicle is important to your investments’ overall success. We offer a full range of structures and we work with you to determine which one best suits your needs - considering tax status, domicile, liquidity, compliance and flexibility.
