Aiming for stable alpha from high integrated multi-factor exposure

Key points:

  • Proven stock ranking model, focused on selecting stocks that exhibit good value, quality, momentum and analyst revisions characteristics
  • Disciplined and transparent portfolio management process that controls relative risks and integrates sustainability
  • Delivering stable alpha in emerging markets since 2008 and given its success also available in Developed Markets, Asia-Pacific and Chinese A-shares

Philosophy

Robeco’s quantitative investment strategies are based on the following beliefs:

Evidence-based research. Identifying factors that are rewarded with superior risk-adjusted performance. This includes extensive empirical testing over longer periods and in different markets.

Economic rationale. We want to move beyond statistical patterns and understand the economic drivers behind factors. Risks that are not adequately rewarded should be avoided.

Prudent investing. We manage easily explainable portfolios and prevent unnecessary trading costs, and we integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.

Process

The strategy invests in, on average, 250 global stocks by applying a quantitative investment strategy that aims to maximize the excess return versus the benchmark while controlling relative risk. The sector and country weights resemble those of the MSCI World Index but we overweight attractive stocks and underweight unattractive ones. Attractiveness is assessed by an integrated multi-factor model that considers a balance of valuation, quality, momentum and analyst revisions.

This strategy is also available for other universes, such as emerging markets, the Asia-Pacific market and the Chinese A-share market.
