U.S. Disciplined Large Cap Growth uses a quantitative approach to invest in in companies with market capitalizations greater than $1 billion that are growing rapidly and have sustainable earnings.

We believe:

  • Investor biases create security mis-pricings
  • We can identify and capitalize on those security mis-pricings by:
    • investing with an objective, systematic, and disciplined process
    • incorporating multiple dimensions of alpha
  • A process should be constructed on the foundation of economically sensible, fundamental measures
  • A multi-dimensional view of risk minimizes unintended exposures
    • Continuous process improvement is key to success
