Evidence-Based Investing

Our Evidence-Based approach to investing draws on more than 90 years of data and research 

Our Evidence-Based Solution

Achieving your most important goals shouldn’t depend on guesswork, gut instincts, emotions or unnecessary risks. 

You need a solidgloballydiversified approach—grounded in decades of data and academic research—that harnesses financial science and puts the power of markets to work for you.

1. Evidence-Based

We begin with the evidence: decades of data, analysis and insights from some of the best minds in finance and academic (including 12 Nobel Laureates) on factors that can help decrease risk and increase potential returns.*

*Nobel Laureates

2. Best-of-Breed

Using a rigorous screening process, we identify and implement an optimized blend of investment management expertise for each. We work with a team of top investment managers, carefully aligning their expertise in accessing specific asset classes and factors of return in order to optimize each portfolio.

3. Disciplined & Independent

We believe a consistent, long-term approach is essential, but readily embrace new research when it can make a real difference for investors.

We also go to exceptional lengths to try and minimize every fraction of returns lost to income taxestransaction costs, and other inefficiencies.

All of our Evidence-Based solutions employ an exclusive blend of top Money Managers and offer a world of smart-diversification.

Putting the Factors of Return in Your Portfolio

key component of our Evidence-Based approach is incorporating factors of return. Factors are characteristics of stocks or bonds that have been identified by extensive research as offering the potential for:

  • Higher returns over time
  • Reduced risk*

Just as healthy diets depend on the right nutrients…portfolio returns depend largely on the right factors. This is why we believe that factor diversification is just as important as asset class diversification for a better long-term investment experience, especially when it comes to portfolios. Because not all factors outperform all of the time, we believe that a factor strategy requires a long-term focus, regardless of short-term performance.

There are risks involved in investing, including loss of principal. Asset allocation may not protect against market loss. Investment in the fund(s) is subject to the risks of underlying funds.

Diversification seeks to reduce volatility by spreading your investment dollars into various asset classes to add balance to your portfolio. Using this methodology, however, does not guarantee a profit or protection from loss in a declining market. Rebalancing assets can have tax consequences. If you sell assets in a taxable account you may have to pay tax on any gain resulting from the sale. Please consult your tax advisor.

Symmetry Partners’ investment approach seeks enhanced returns by overweighting assets that exhibit characteristics that tend to be in accordance with one or more “factors” identified in academic research as historically associated with higher returns. Please be advised that adding these factors may not ensure increased return over a market weighted investment and may lead to underperformance relative to the benchmark over the investor’s time horizon. The factors Symmetry seeks to capture may change over time at its discretion. Currently, the major factors in equity markets used by Symmetry and some associated academic research are: the market risk premium (Sharpe, William F. “Capital Asset Prices: A Theory of Market Equilibrium under Conditions of Risk.” The Journal of Finance, Vol. 19, No. 3 (Sept. 1964), 425-442.), value (Fama, Eugene and Ken French. “Common risk factors in the returns on stocks and bonds.” Journal of Financial Economics, 33, (1993), 3-56.), small (Banz, Rolf W. “The Relationship Between Return and Market Value of Common Stocks.” Journal of Financial Economics, 9 (1981), 3-18.), profitability (Novy-Marx, Robert. “The Other Side of Value: The Gross Profitability Premium.” Journal of Financial Economics, 108(1), (2013), 1-28. ), quality (Asness, Clifford S.; Andrea Frazzini; and Lasse H. Pedersen. “Quality Minus Junk.” Working Paper.), momentum (Jegadeesh,Narasimhan and Sheridan Titman. “Returns to Buying Winners and Selling Losers: Implications for Stock Market Efficiency.” The Journal of Finance, Vol. 48, No. 1, (March 1993), 65-91), and minimum volatility (Ang, Andrew, Robert J. Hodrick, Yuhang Xing and Xiaoyan Zhang. “The Cross-Section of Volatility and Expected Returns.” The Journal of Finance, Vol. 61, No. 1 (Feb. 2006), pp. 259-299.) On the bond side, Symmetry primarily seeks to capture maturity and credit risk premiums (Ilmanen, Antti. Expected Returns: An Investor’s Guide to Harvesting Market Rewards. WileyFinance, 2011, p157-158 and 183-185.). All data is from sources believed to be reliable but cannot be guaranteed or warranted.
