Risk management

The investment team focuses beyond sector and factor exposure to gain a view of a portfolio’s positioning and biases. Their factor-based risk analysis is used when constructing portfolios to better understand what active positions are in those selections and any unintentional exposures that may come through when constructing a bottom-up portfolio.
