Fundamental…or Quant?

Topics - Portfolio Construction Factor/Style Investing

The Curious Investor hosts Gabe Feghali and Dan Villalon welcome three guests to discuss the differences between quantitative and fundamental investing styles and how implementing them affects portfolios. AQR co-founder and Managing Principal Cliff Asness, and Lee Ainslie, Managing Partner of Maverick Capital, talk about how they arrived at these different approaches to investing. They also debunk some common misconceptions about both quant and fundamental investing and discuss how managers within each type are correlated. And finally, Adrienne Ross, from AQR’s global stock selection team, helps listeners put the two investing approaches into perspective when it comes to returns.
