Why Invest In This Fund

Capitalizes on market inefficiencies

RAE selects and weights stocks based on fundamental measures of company size including sales, cash flow, dividends, and book value. By removing price from the portfolio construction process, this value fund aims to buy low and sell high, and to outperform its benchmark over time.

Enhanced by active insights

Starting with fundamental weighting, the strategy then refines these weights by incorporating active insights into quality, momentum, style and size with the goal of further enhancing returns. These insights continually evolve based on the ongoing research of the portfolio managers.

Offers the benefits of investing systematic equity strategy

The fund’s unique rules-based approach seeks a consistent investment process and a contrarian portfolio designed to deliver market outperformance.

Our Expertise
