U.S. Enhanced Large-Cap Growth


The Enhanced U.S. Large-Cap Growth investment strategy seeks to enhance a portfolio’s performance relative to the Russell 1000 Growth Index, while keeping other risk-related attributes in line with the benchmark.

The Enhanced U.S. Large-Cap Growth investment approach is based on proprietary quantitative modeling strategies that seek out the most attractive large-cap value investment opportunities. These strategies are based on a set of quantitative factors, including fundamental valuation, market sentiment, profitability, earnings quality and financial/market momentum. The team continuously evaluates and tweaks its existing quantitative models by paying particular attention to changing market dynamics in order to successfully identify new investment opportunities.

This strategy attempts to outperform the Russell 1000 Growth Index using a multi-factor model to overweight undervalued securities and underweight overvalued ones. In addition to seeking to outperforming its own benchmark, the portfolio is structured to resemble and retain similar risk characteristics to its benchmark.
