RQSI uses a systematic approach that powers the alternative strategies we offer to our investors. In contrast to discretionary trading, systematic investing's rules-based approach offers considerable benefits to investors, namely efficient insulation from behavioral biases, added scalability, and enhanced risk management.
Alpha is generated through the nexus of two key concepts: The 6 Effects and The 12 Boxes. Structured by three distinct silos that further classify our trading models, the framework represents the orthogonal essence of our systematic macro strategies for attractive, risk-adjusted returns.
The 6 Effects
We source alpha through a collection of six behavioral and economic effects based on broad market phenomena.
Opportunities presented through The 6 Effects are subsequently segmented into silos defined by four classifications: the data used to generate signals, the way risk is allocated, the manner of trading, and the time frame. Through this system we are able to develop and offer transparent, bespoke liquid alternative products that optimally meet investor objectives.
