Rule #1: Never lose money. Rule #2: Never forget rule #1.  

Have you taken Warren Buffett’s injunction to heart? We have. Since 1 July 2015, our market risk scores have provided 65.6% capital protection in the worst market crashes across dozens of the world’s riskiest equity markets. For you and your team, this level of capital protection virtually guarantees long-term market outperformance.

Fundamental? Quantitative? Macro-driven? It all works for us.

Whichever approach you favor, our binary risk data can be easily integrated into your proprietary investment process. If you’re running a quantitative, machine-driven process, it literally becomes a weighing exercise. And if it’s a fundamental or macro-driven investment strategy, then the binary risk scores become one more quantified variable among the many others that enter your decision equation: GDP, CPI, M1, M2… We even optimized the duration of our risk scores for seamless integration into weekly, monthly and even quarterly portfolio rebalancing schedules.

Look at risk differently.

That's what we finally did.

Volatility. VaR. Standard deviation. Have you tried using these standard measures of risk for allocating capital? We did. And we learned the hard way that it just doesn’t work. Long story short: high volatility markets can go up. And low volatility markets can go down. By contrast, our multi-factor algorithms seek to capture the directionality of markets. And this makes our risk scores highly effective for your capital allocation process.

Bottom-up. Top-down.

Macro views are traditionally generated in a top-down fashion. But we flipped this process upside down: all of our macro views are generated from the bottom-up. For example: to generate a market view on China, we systematically analyze and evaluate hundreds of individual Chinese stocks. We then combine all of this single stock data to generate an overarching view on the China equity market. So micro drives macro.
