Quantitative Strategies & Risk Premia

The QSRP group delivers returns by building and maintaining a portfolio that spans both systematic alpha and risk premia factors across global asset classes. The group manages mathematical and statistical modelling to combine sources of return from alpha and risk premia into a portfolio with an attractive risk-return profile.

The portfolio is also designed to be diversifying over time to broad market indexes.
