Analytic Investors Team

The Analytic Investors team is widely recognized for a commitment to innovative factor research, disciplined quantitative methods, and sophisticated risk control techniques. Analytic's quantitative methods bring together the best attributes of individual security selection and unbiased portfolio modeling—yielding a management style that is both disciplined and responsive.

    Investment Process
  • The team's investment process is founded on the premise that the systematic application of quantitative techniques has the potential to deliver consistent risk-adjusted returns, regardless of market cycle.
  • Leveraging over 20 years of experience in fundamental factor investing, Analytic has created a robust proprietary investment process to extract value from investor behavior. The team believes that an actively managed quantitative strategy allows them to deliver portfolios with better risk-adjusted returns without taking on uncompensated or unnecessary risk compared to the broad market.
  • Through the use of intelligent quantitative techniques that analyze the factors or characteristics, the team seeks to exploit this persistency while maintaining adaptability.
  • The systematic and responsive weighting of these factors, along with the multitude of characteristics analyzed, is what differentiates Analytic from its competitors as both a leader in risk management and factor-based investing.

Risk Management
The Analytic Investors team views risk through a variety of lenses, using multiple historical risk models to identify where on the risk spectrum stocks have lived historically, and then supplementing the historical view with some more forward looking risk tools which allow us to risk budget at the stock level based on implied volatility, news events, and ESG scores.
