Philosophy

Our views on factor investing

A simple idea

  • Some factors explain abnormal return
  • Many well-documented factors in the academic world, invested on for decades

In real life, many challenges on the way

  • Overfitting, execution costs, correlations
  • Differences in design, assembling and implementation lead to very different results

Our values

  • Scientific rigour and transparency
  • Cutting-edge and systematic implementation

True scientific approach and state-of-the-art engineering are key to achieve outperformance
