Factor Investing is a systematic and quantitative data-driven approach to investing that seeks to instil rigor and discipline, and to consistently capture excess returns from specific risk factors.
Our investment approach is best described as “fundamental quant”, or the use of quantitative methods to identify and systematise insights grounded in financial economics research. Our investment philosophy is simple and time-tested: buy good-quality credit at attractive prices.
