What Sets Us Apart


Our resilient leadership, solid ownership structure, and unified culture have led to remarkably low turnover rates. In an industry marked by significant upheaval in recent years, our investment team's stability shines brightly.


Our investment philosophy is rooted in market rationality, behavioral awareness, and active management. We prioritize real shareholder value, utilize a broad opportunity set, and rigorously control risk through systematic processes.


Our investment process is anchored in our multi-factor model, which has a long, successful history of identifying stocks poised to outperform and those that will lag. We (and our predecessor firm) have been refining and improving the model throughout the last 40 years.


Compared to other systematic managers, our portfolios are relatively concentrated. Our bottom-up process and high “active share” further distinguish us from our competitors.
