Company Description

Quantitative Management Associates (QMA) uses proprietary quantitative models to systematically identify undervalued stocks or those they believe are mispriced because of investor sentiment or bias. The firm offers an array of investment strategies that fall under four broad categories: actively managed equity; equity indexing; asset allocation; and structured strategies.QMA's actively manages core equity and value equity strategies. These domestic, non-US and global strategies employ proprietary quantitative stock evaluation processes and proprietary portfolio construction models. Portfolios are managed against specific benchmarks. The firm emphasizes stocks that are attractively rated on a number of quantifiable attributes such as valuation and accounting-based measures. Portfolios are constructed using portfolio optimization algorithms.QMA's Equity Indexing strategies seek to replicate the performance and characteristics of US or international equity indices. The strategies offer low cost passive exposure to an equity index either through replication or sampling methods.QMA invests in non-traditional asset classes that seek diversification and enhanced risk adjusted returns. For certain accounts, they may actively manage an overlay portion of the account. These investments typically include ETFs, as well as, futures on interest rates or broad-based stock indices and other derivatives.QMA's asset allocation strategies seek to match or outperform a performance benchmark unique to each client. Such benchmarks may represent a composite return consisting of a combination of component index returns. Underlying investments may be actively and/or passively managed by QMA, their affiliates, or unaffiliated managers. They may also include positions in derivatives, ETFs, or pooled and similar investment vehicles.The firm offers structured strategies that use a combination of derivatives and other securities in an attempt to provide investment characteristics that meet specific risk and return objectives.
