Systematic, Factor-driven Equity Investors

The case for equity investing remains compelling but the way investors achieve exposure to stocks is changing rapidly.

The logic and attractiveness of passive investing have fueled a well-documented realignment by investors. The trend has matured to move beyond capitalization-based index investments in favor of factor-defined outcomes across efficient capital markets. This has enabled investors to channel their pursuit of alpha into less efficient marketplaces.

Factor Focused Strategies

The move to passive strategies has caused a reevaluation of the specific indexes or betas that investors target. Simple capitalization-weighted indexes expose investors to unintended risks due to outsized individual securities positions and sector concentrations. As a result, these traditionally constructed indexes are being challenged for primacy by specific factor or multi-factor oriented betas. At Cadence, we follow a rules-based approach with Factor Focused Strategies designed to capture specific factor and style risk premiums.

Growth Equity Strategies

The quest for equity alpha continues among investors seeking higher absolute returns and the diversification benefits that often coincide with investments in less efficient asset classes. Cadence Growth Equity Strategies target small and mid-sized companies pursuing a growth-at-a reasonable-price approach and using systematic tools to facilitate fundamental security analysis.
