Northern Trust Global Investments, the multi-asset class investment management business of Northern Trust, has launched its Quantitative 130/30 Core Equity Strategy, which seeks to outperform the Russell 1000 Index by applying a multi-factor investment process and disciplined, risk-controlled approach.
NTGI's Quantitative 130/30 Core Equity Strategy has a goal of outperforming the Russell 1000 by 4% annually. The strategy enables the portfolio manager to take short positions up to 30% and long positions up to 130%, and is designed to leverage the strategy's alpha while maintaining 100% exposure to the market.
"With this strategy, institutional investors get to capture the full benefit of our research capabilities while overcoming traditional long-only inefficiencies," stated Jeremy Baskin, global head of quantitative active strategies for NTGI.
Northern Trust is a provider of investment management, asset and fund administration, fiduciary and banking solutions for corporations, institutions and wealthy individuals worldwide. As of the end of December, Northern Trust had assets under management of $3.5 trillion, and assets under investment management of $697 billion.
