Achieving Excess Returns by Avoiding Unintended Risks.

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 build an equity portfolio to employ the most efficient strategies to help you reach your objectives?

With quantitative equity strategies, 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 quantitative 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 custom solution tailored for your needs

Collaborative Solutions in Action

Our global equity team works with clients to target factors to meet portfolio objectives. 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:

  • Quality Low Volatility
