Quantitative International

Equity Portfolio

GIM believes that a benchmark-agnostic portfolio of international American Depository Receipts (ADRs), constructed with a disciplined blend of proprietary multi-factor models and downside risk screens, may achieve long-term performance.

The competitive advantage of our International ADR strategy is derived from the following key attributes:

Quantitative discipline; fundamental insight
Models based on intuitive fundamentals that drive performance

Proprietary, diversified models for each country and sector
Unique models for buying and selling

Initial equal weighting vs. weighting by market cap
Seeks to minimize single-stock risk; avoids bias toward expensive ADRs

Discipline emphasizes high quality and valuation
Focus on superior upside and downside capture
