Quantitative U.S. Large Cap Faith-Based Equity

Investment Objective

Above-benchmark long-term performance through capital appreciation.

We seek to create and consistently maintain a strategy with favorable attributes relative to the benchmark index utilizing unique stock ranking models for each sector, downside risk screens and leading industry group indicators. This strategy has managed to exclude companies that violate the principles of faith-based organizations (such as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) as directed by clients.

Key Tenets of Our Approach

Key 1

Proprietary, multi-factor stock selection models for each sector (can include ESG metrics)

Key 2

Downside risk screens (e.g. earnings surprise indicators, quality of earnings)

Key 3

Leading industry group indicators, integrating top-down and bottom-up metrics
