THEAM’s Model-Driven Asset Management


The link between quantitative and conviction-based management

THEAM’s model-driven management segment includes 19 managers who have extensive experience of quantitative research and financial markets. It combines two teams with complementary investment philosophies: the Global Quant Team and the Cross-Asset Team.

Both teams use quantitative research and models for innovative and effective investment solutions for investors. These may be combined with the manager’s involvement on a discretionary basis or with the use of derivatives.

Our teams work closely with the financial engineering teams at BNP Paribas Investment Partners and with BNP Paribas quantitative and structured investment teams to design innovative investment strategies that meet the changing requirements of both private and institutional investors as closely as possible.

The Global Quant Team

The global quant managers focus on purely systematic management, i.e. they use a quantitative model directly to manage funds invested in a single asset class, for example equities, bonds or commodities.

These funds are known as smart-beta funds.

The Cross-Asset Team

Cross-asset managers use quantitative models and decision-making assistance tools. They combine quantitative and discretionary approaches which are based on their convictions about the markets, managing diversified, flexible or absolute return funds invested in several asset classes and strategies.
