AQR specializes in quantitative investment analysis. 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. They perform ongoing research to monitor and maintain the effectiveness of its models over time. In developing quantitative forecasting computer models, they use external data. AQR may also utilize discretionary and/or hybrid strategies through a combination of quantitative and fundamental techniques. They utilize several investment strategies including, but not limited to, arbitrage strategies, equity strategies, global macro strategies, fixed income strategies, and risk parity.

BIM offers a range of investment solutions from fundamental and quantitative active management to indexing strategies designed to gain broad exposure to the world's capital markets. They offers both US and non-US equity investment strategies using a variety of investment styles including growth, value, core and enhanced equity, that are targeted to specific market-cap ranges, including small-, mid-, small/mid-, large- and all-cap, as well as geographic and industry sectors. The firm also offers alternative asset and multi-asset separate account strategies. The product range may also include sector funds, long-only and long-short portfolios, as well as products that combine different strategies to create balanced and asset allocation portfolios. For certain private investors and other SMA program investment strategies, BIM creates and maintains 'target' portfolios of securities, to which securities are added and from which securities are removed from time to time. The firm utilizes fixed-income strategies that are actively managed, model or index based. Actively managed fixed-income mandates generally employ an active investment style that emphasizes rotation among different types of debt on a relative value basis, specific security selection, quantitative analysis of each security and the portfolio as a whole and intensive credit analysis and review. Model-based institutional strategies typically invest across a broad spectrum of global fixed-income securities as well as currencies, futures and swaps. BIM employs a risk controlled, systematic process for portfolio construction and alpha generation. Alpha sources may include security selection, duration and yield curve positioning, industry rotation, asset allocation, and currency positioning. For institutional index strategies, BIM typically invests in accordance with the risk and return profile of the benchmark either by replicating the index, or utilizing security level or stratified sampling.

Bridgewater structures portfolios in a manner designed to produce consistent and uncorrelated returns. They believe that building portfolios based on risk allocations is more effective than using capital allocations; and those investors should consider their strategic asset allocation (beta) separate from tactical moves (alpha). The firm also believes investors can improve their portfolios' overall results by separately creating a well-diversified beta portfolio that is balanced against environmental biases and calibrated to one's targeted returns, and a well-diversified alpha portfolio that reduces systematic biases (and also calibrated to one's targeted returns). Bridgewater applies this approach to investing across the portfolios it manages. The firm offers an active management strategy (Pure Alpha), a constrained active management strategy that invests in a subset of the markets in which Pure Alpha invests (Pure Alpha Major Markets), an asset allocation strategy (All Weather), and an investment strategy which applies its best understanding of how to combine All Weather with tailored active market views (Optimal Portfolio).
