Bespoke Equity Solutions
Capturing the systematic risk premia associated with your investment styles

Helping you achieve the optimal exposure to equity markets you seek:

A growing body of empirical studies shows that systematic risk premia such as value, size or momentum account for a substantial part of long-term portfolio performance, and that substituting traditional mandates with risk premia strategies has historically reduced volatility and enhanced long-term risk adjusted performance.
Q.M.S Advisors believes that this
approach to investing can play a crucial role in redefining portfolio construction by providing low cost easily accessible building blocks for Strategic Asset Allocation, therefore we developed advanced optimization techniques that help you devise products and solutions that provide you with the optimal exposures to the systematic risk premia you seek.

Minimum Volatility Solutions

We help you design solutions that reflect the performance of a minimum variance (or managed volatility) equity strategy. Minimum Volatility solutions are calculated by optimizing a traditional cap weighted index to attain the lowest level of volatility for a given set of constraints. These constraints are generally designed to ensure index replicability and investability and include limits to index turnover and to index constituent, sector and country weights relative to the parent index.

Risk Weighted Solutions
We help you design solutions that
tilt a traditional market cap weighted index towards stocks with lower risk. Each Risk Weighted solution reweights all the constituents of a cap weighted index so that stocks with lower historical return variance are given higher index weights. By emphasizing low volatility stocks in this way, our Risk Weighted solutions have historically exhibited lower realized volatility compared to their respective indices, while maintaining reasonable liquidity and capacity and a full representation of the parent index.

Risk Control Solutions

Risk Control solutions aim to replicate the performance of a strategy that targets a specific level of risk by dynamically varying the weights of an underlying parent index, based on the realized volatility of the index, and a cash component.

High Dividend Yield Solutions

High Dividend Yield solutions aim to capture the high dividend yield equity opportunity set within a standard index, by including only securities that offer a meaningfully higher than average dividend yield relative to the parent index and that pass dividend sustainability and persistence screens.

Equal Weighted Solutions

Equal Weighted solutions weight each security equally at each quarterly index rebalancing, removing the influence of prices from the weighting scheme at rebalance. Equal weighted solutions can provide greater exposure to smaller cap index constituents than cap weighted solutions where larger cap constituents have the dominant impact on index valuations.

Factor Solutions

Factor solutions are designed to reflect our risk model factors that can represent important drivers of both risk and return in equity markets. Q.M.S Advisors' Factor solutions are constructed through optimization and aim to achieve constant high exposure to a target factors, very low active exposure to all other factors and minimum tracking error relative the standard parent index. Current factors include Momentum, Value, Earnings Yield, Volatility and Leverage.
