The Quality Value strategy builds on the proven power of value investing by adding the quality factor in an effort to lift returns and reduce volatility.
Our research has demonstrated that Quality is a solid complement to other factors such as Value, as it historically increased return, reduced volatility, and mitigated the effects of other factor cycles. By investing at the intersection of quality and value, the strategy seeks to capture a greater premium that value alone.
- Defines value universe with current and normalized value metrics
- Uses comprehensive, proprietary quality score to avoid distressed companies
