The growth in the volume of data worldwide - especially on the financial markets - knows no bounds. In order to cope with this flood of information, an investment system is needed that channels and filters the data and converts it into emotionless investment decisions based on clearly defined rules. We cater to just this need with our systematically managed funds and construct portfolios with optimised risk-return profiles.
With our systematic investment products, we aim for consistent excess returns regardless of the market environment. The investment process used has proven its worth in both rising and falling markets as well as in varying volatilities.
Our clear principles can be described as follows:
Our quantitative models, developed in-house, are based on many years of experience and are continuously optimised. Using rule-based optimisation algorithms, we reliably identify the most promising securities from the extensive investment universe and combine them into promising risk-controlled portfolios.
Most investors tend to have strong emotions when it comes to securities investments: losses are deemed unbearable, securities are sold at the wrong time and cluster risks are accepted despite knowing better. With our systematic investment products, which do not allow subjective decisions, investors overcome these typical barriers that prevent investment success.
When selecting securities, we focus on the return drivers (factors) "value", "quality" and "momentum". Value filters out inexpensive shares. Quality identifies companies with high-quality balance sheet ratios. Momentum prefers companies whose equities performance has been above average in the past.
The three factors described, "value", "quality" and "momentum", are extensively documented in the financial literature and are very well substantiated both economically and empirically. Each of these return drivers demonstrably generates attractive, risk-adjusted returns over the long term.
Our products within the systematic range differ not only in their geographical focus but also in terms of the degree of risk. With the Responsible product line, we also offer systematic funds for responsible investors.
Within our dynamic multi-asset funds with target risk, we continuously identify those asset classes with an increased risk and then reduce the asset class to an equally weighted target risk. Price fluctuations are thus systematically cushioned without slamming on the brakes.
