Quant Stock Funds Make a Comeback
Morningstar: Bogle Small Cap Growth and AQR Momentum to outperform peers
Here are some highlights my dear:
Although many think of quant funds as static computer-driven strategies, the highest-quality quants continuously evaluate their models and add or remove factors, which may include companies’ cash flow, revenues and price-to-earnings ratios, says Tim Barron, chief investment officer at Segal Rogerscasey, which helps investors research and select money managers
Andrew Lo, a finance professor at MIT Sloan School of Management and founder of AlphaSimplex Group, a quantitative investment manager in Cambridge, Mass., agrees that the models should evolve.
“I would argue that quantitative strategies really aren’t that different from proprietary discretionary strategies,” he says.
Mr. Lo defines quant methods as those that use “algorithmic, disciplined analytic methods in a technologically leveraged manner.”
Philip Blancato, president and chief executive of … Asset Management, is also looking to quantitative strategies to help shield investors in the event of a downturn.
