Arrowstreet’s investment process uses forecasting models that combine the experience and judgement of Arrowstreet’s investment team with quantitative analysis to forecast individual stock returns. Stock forecasts are based upon a diverse set of predictive factors that can be categorised as value, momentum, earnings, high frequency and currency signals.
Value signals allow the strategy to identify stocks that are either undervalued or overvalued relative to fundamentals.
Momentum signals allow the strategy to identify stocks that are expected to outperform based on the slow reflection of information in security prices and the speculative behaviour of investors.
Earnings signals help the strategy identify future profits and changes in market sentiment.
High frequency signals, such as price patterns, help identify short-term opportunities and are useful in timing longer term trades driven by value, momentum or earnings considerations.
Currency signals help improve the currency exposure in a given portfolio.
In constructing the final portfolio, Arrowstreet uses an optimisation process to balance the trade-off between a stock’s expected return, its contribution to portfolio risk, and its trading costs.
