The team

AQ Investors is the quantitative investment group of Aberdeen Asset Management. Formed in 2005, the team manages a diverse range of products across the risk-return spectrum including passive, smart beta and active quant strategies. Using proprietary, systematic (rules-based) approaches to investing, our team manages equity, fixed income, and derivative portfolios across all markets to provide clients with cost-effective, risk-controlled, and transparent customised solutions.

Our investment process

Our investment process is grounded in academic research and proven investment theory. We identify sources of excess risk-adjusted returns, test them throughout the business cycle, and implement them in a systematic, cost-effective, and risk-controlled manner. By having a deep understanding of the individual sources of returns, we are well placed to optimally combine them to create solutions in line with our clients’ requirements, which could encompass pure index tracking, enhanced indexation, smart beta or derivative overlays such as call options overwriting.
