Candriam Quant Eqs USA S

Candriam Quant Equities USA is managed on the basis of a quantitative model designed and tested in-house. That model is linked to a vast database of more than 40 alpha factors with a history of more than 15 years. Alpha factors are factors which might generate an outperformance or alpha (price/earnings ratio, growth forecasts, profit revisions and so on).
On the basis of an optimum combination of alpha factors, different for each sector, the model selects the most attractive stocks in each sector. That selection is applied to the fund, taking account of limitations with regard to risk and turnover in the portfolio. The sector and country allocation is neutral in comparison to the reference index, which explains the fact that sector and country weightings in the fund are very close to those of the MSCI USA.
