What is quantitative investing?

Quantitative investing uses technology and modelling to perform investment analysis, identify investment opportunities and to select what goes into, and what is left out, of a portfolio.

An ongoing evolution

Investing and client requirements have changed dramatically in the past decade. Technology has advanced and, with it, the sophistication of investors. Increased use of passive approaches, lower fees and a growing focus on client outcomes means that investment needs are increasingly solutions driven. At the same time, big data and environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are becoming ever more important to investors. The quantitative investing process can be highly adaptable to these trends, offering scalable, low-cost solutions that target outcomes and can easily incorporate new data and technologies for the benefit of clients. 

Our approach

We are pioneers in quantitative equity investing and continue to be at the cutting edge of where data, technology and investment strategy meet. We have been using advanced modelling techniques since 1985 to conduct deep, fundamental analysis of companies around the globe and continue to innovate, both in the use of new technology and data but also in the solutions we develop for our clients. We pride ourselves on being responsible investors – aiming to incorporate ESG considerations, control risk and minimise costs. Our mission is to partner with clients to deliver sustainable, outcome-oriented investment solutions.
