Our Approach
  • Investment Strategy - Classic Mid & Small Cap equity strategy leveraging 40 years of hand-scrubbed US data by size, sector/industry, risk, and style. We identify under and overvalued sectors and make active calls on select industries within those sectors.
  • Quantitative Modeling - Cirrus Signature Models, using proprietary factors, regularly produce portfolios that generate alpha signals; 24 Long and four Short models covering Large to Micro, Growth and Value that are individually back tested.
  • Research Reports - Designed to put our best ideas to work. Reports range from active strategy work on sector/industry developments or factor behavior that discuss the near and long-term implications to concise investigations of a market trend, zeroing in on drivers, impact, correlations and leaders/laggards. The macro picture is always illustrated at the stock level.
  • Proprietary Indicators - Market intelligence tools to gauge risk and shifts in behavior; examples include Cirrus Risk Indicator (CRX), a contraindication on risk appetite for identifying market-timing opportunities, Polarization Measure to gauge expected volatility, etc.
