We Are Adapting

Over the last three decades the exponential growth of sophisticated analytic tools, along with significant improvements in the accuracy and size of research databases, has led to tremendous advances in the fields of finance, econometrics, and statistics.  As a result, quantitative portfolio management strategies have become increasingly more effective for all asset classes.  When properly designed and implemented, they can provide more meaningful return, risk, and cost advantages than traditional subjective strategies.  Having gained popularity in recent years, the quantitative trend is expected to continue as investors recognize its disciplined approach can increase the probability of long-term success.  By reducing the investment equation to key time-tested variables, thereby eliminating the subjectivity of human nature, quantitative strategies function in a more optimal manner.

In today’s highly uncertain market environment, no single approach can guarantee future success.  Quantitative strategies help investors more effectively manage their return, risk, and expenses, and can help shift the probability of long-term success more greatly in their favor.
