Active equity portfolios that offer both improved performance and managed volatility

Investors have long turned to Northern Trust for high-quality, risk-managed equity investments. Our core quality philosophy is based on thorough analysis, and lies at the heart of each equity strategy we offer. This foundation of quality helps us create and manage active equity portfolios that offer both improved performance and managed volatility.

What Does Quality Really Mean?
We use proprietary models designed to identify high-quality companies, undertaking detailed assessments of each company compared to its peers, using fundamental factors that are empirically tested, supported by academic research and applied quantitatively. We believe high-quality companies should exhibit characteristics such as:

  • Management efficiency
  • Profitability
  • Cash generation

Why is Quality Important for Investors?
Quality can help meet your investment objectives, as a single factor or in combination with other factors. Northern Trust’s proprietary method identifies high-quality companies and thoughtfully incorporates them into a portfolio that best suits your needs.
