Our investment philosophy is based on three core principles, built on decades of research and experience. By applying these principles, we seek to deliver sustainable, long-term value for our investors.
We rely on sound economic theory and analysis to help us deliver long-term, repeatable results.
A disciplined methodology underlies everything we do. Our investment process, built over 20 years, is based on a continuous process of design, refine, test, repeat.
In portfolio construction, risk management and trading, we seek additional value for our clients. Using both qualitative and quantitative tools, we’re meticulous in every detail of the investment process.
For 25 years, our goal has been to build portfolios that deliver active returns within a risk-controlled framework. We apply our systematic approach across our strategies, catering to the widespread investment needs of our clients.
These strategies seek to generate consistent excess returns over an equity benchmark. They combine established and proprietary signals based on rigorous research.
Strategies that build on Enhanced, but broaden the implementation through use of limited shorting in a 130/30 context while remaining beta-1 products.
These strategies extend our Enhanced capabilities by adding dedicated country and currency models, seeking to capture additional alpha opportunities.
AQR has a long track record of managing the complexities of alternative strategies. We offer both absolute return strategies, which target zero exposure to traditional markets, either at all times, or on average; and total return strategies, which additionally seek to capture premia from traditional markets.
