How we do it 

  • We comb through the vast amount of stock market anomaly research. We find the most robust factors, test them, and when appropriate, incorporate them into our model. We document our research efforts, and publish reports highlighting our findings
  • All stocks covered by our platform receive a ranking based on the quantitative factors we have selected
  • The weight each factor receives changes over time based on the investment cycle, thereby favoring factors that are likely to outperform
  • In addition to the quantitative data, we also leverage BCA Research’s macro expertise, and feed our qualitative macro calls back into the model
