Guide to Quantitative Portfolios

Quantitative Portfolios (“QPs”) are separately managed accounts designed and constructed to offer several primary attributes, including: cost-efficient exposure to beta, tax-efficiency, and the ability to be customized. At their core, QPs are passively managed, and are structured to provide a pre-tax return similar to a broad-based benchmark index at a cost that is competitive with ETFs. We attempt to enhance after-tax return through active tax management. As their name suggests, the portfolios are constructed quantitatively, with risk assessment and tax management considerations being the sole criteria.
