A quantitative investment process is a methodology employing a strict and rigorously tested strategy which consists of clear, set rules.
To remove human emotion R&I defines all investment rules mathematically to avoid ambiguity. These investment rules are then tested via the use of technology across economic cycles, a variety of markets and market conditions to demonstrate whether they enhance or detract from a strategies performance.
This allows the investor to execute the strategy within a systematic framework with a focus on decreasing the negative effects that emotional and behavioural biases have on the investor’s decision making process.
The rules and strategy must add value across different time frames and markets. R&I is then able to select its investments based on these definitive rules and mathematical filters. This methodology ensures R&I’s investment choices are made only after the established set of proprietary criteria is met. Utilising a systematic process has the added benefit of there being no psychological, behavioral or conflicts of interest at play. Investors receive truly independent and objective stock recommendations.
R&I’s utilities momentum to identify top-performing stocks in anticipation of continued out performance.
