BUILDING BETTER FINANCIAL FUTURES

Active equities

Sometimes, market returns alone are not enough for financial well-being

Are you looking to fund a college education, build a rock-solid retirement nest egg — or maybe juggling both at once? Perhaps you’re a retiree seeking adventure or simple contentment and financial comfort. Maybe you’re just starting out with your sights on home ownership or financial independence.

Whatever your goals, an allocation to actively managed equity strategies can provide the means to target a leg up on market returns ... because tracking indexes may not be enough to put you on the path to your life’s financial ambitions.

What are your active pursuits?

Each of these investors holds a position in active equities to help them target their life's financial goals. This line should be in regular sentence case.

    Fundamental strategies are sometimes called “traditional” or “discretionary.” Portfolio management teams dig deep to assess the fundamental merit of a company. They often focus on a relatively small group of well-studied names, gaining in-depth insight into each individual company’s prospects. A quantitative screen helps teams to narrow their research universe.

  • Systematic strategies

    Systematic strategies are often termed "quantitative," "rules-based" or "model-driven." Portfolio management teams seek to identify information not yet reflected in market prices....

    Systematic strategies are often termed "quantitative," "rules-based" or "model-driven." Portfolio management teams seek to identify information not yet reflected in market prices. Systematic managers can cover thousands of stocks and take a computer-driven approach to drill down to each company’s fundamental strengths. They seek a first-mover advantage by tapping into emergent trends.
