Company Description

AQR specializes in quantitative investment analysis and utilizes a systematic research-driven approach to managing alternative and traditional strategies. The firm’s models may consider a wide breadth of factors – from traditional valuation measures, momentum indicators, and price signals, to textual analysis of financial reporting and terms of trade information. They perform their research internally. AQR begins the process of building a model to test the strategy’s viability once an investment approach is identified. The model building process generally consists of two steps: (1) designing an investing strategy to implement the given approach; and (2) producing testable implications. The firm performs ongoing research to monitor and maintain the effectiveness of its models over time. In developing quantitative forecasting computer models, they use external data.
