Alpha sources are based on in‐depth understanding of fundamental elements that drive a company’s growth trajectory.

DEPTH

We believe that systematically evaluating a company’s underlying strength and intrinsic worth is best accomplished using quantitative techniques.

We focus on automating the analysis of information from both traditional and unconventional sources to identify opportunities that arise from mispriced fundamentals.

BREADTH

We believe quantitative tools can better analyze vast amounts of data with greater speed to form a more comprehensive picture of a company’s growth prospects.

We diversify our portfolios based on the time horizon of our investments and their associated risk factors.

DIVERSIFICATION

We believe diversifying our portfolio is critical to minimizing risk and sustaining alpha in all market environments.

GLM Analytics: Our Quantitative Model

GLM Analytics is our proprietary research system that guides buying and selling decisions for our portfolios. It utilizes cutting edge machine-learning algorithms to analyze large volumes of data.  This platform enables us to take a deeply informed and differentiated view on thousands of securities, quickly identify a subset of investment opportunities, and act on them in real time.

GLM Analytics automates the analysis, development, testing, execution and risk management of investment strategies, leveraging a variety of data sources. It combines top down macroeconomic analysis with bottom-up fundamental analysis to identify high-quality securities trading at a discount to their intrinsic value.

Each stock in the universe is assigned an alpha score based on the company’s fundamentals and growth prospects, market dynamics and industry events. Investment opportunities are ranked according to their alpha scores which forms the basis of our buy and sell decisions.

GLM-Analytics

“We believe in win-wins, not unsustainable relationships. We are committed to a business model that prioritizes client success.”

 

-Andrew Middlebrooks, CEO & CIO

Why EIA

We are active investors, not closet indexers, and we have structured an investment process and environment that enables us to be disciplined, to be patient and to exercise good judgment.

Strong Track Record

Our proprietary analytics platform automates our investment process. Previous incarnations of our quantitative model have consistently outperformed the S&P 500.

Alignment of Interests

Our firm is wholly employee-owned and our leadership team is personally invested alongside our limited partners. We are therefore strongly aligned with the financial interests of our investors.

Unconstrained

Our portfolios are unconstrained by geography, market cap, sector, asset class or credit rating. We can “go anywhere” to discover value and generate alpha.

Risk Management

We institute automated risk controls on a daily basis at both the portfolio and position level, including daily stress tests, market change simulations, and setting hard limits.

Leadership

Our leadership team draws from several years of investing experience to generate alpha for our investors.
