Methods of Analysis
In addition, Winton Capitals methods of analysis include:
In constructing our investment strategies, we follow a process that is based on statistical analysis of historical data. The initial stage of this process involves collecting, cleaning and organizing relevant data. We use a variety of data inputs including technical, i.e. data intrinsic to markets such as price, volume and open interest; and fundamental, i.e. data external to markets such as economic statistics, industrial and commodity data and public company financial data.
We conduct research into this data to identify relationships that may be used to make statistical inferences. This research is used to develop investment systems that attempt to forecast market returns, the variability or volatility associated with such returns, the correlation between different markets and transaction costs. These investment systems are aggregated in investment strategies that determine, within the portfolio’s risk framework, what positions should be held to seek to maximize profit.
We implement the investment systems using computer programs that generate signals which are applied to the instruments traded. These systems are continually modified, including in the light of market developments and as we undertake further research. Changes to the systems occur as a result of, amongst other things, the discovery of new relationships, changes in market liquidity, the availability of new data or the reinterpretation of existing data.
The implementation of our investment strategies incorporates certain subjective elements, such as the decision as to which investment signals to use, the weightings of particular signals, the leverage to be applied and the instruments on which to focus. In addition, we continually monitor the behavior of the investment systems, portfolio composition, and market conditions, and we have the discretion to make decisions based on factors other than the output of the investment systems.
Our quantitative investment strategies are systematic and are applied to a diverse investment universe. They invest globally long and short, using leverage, in instruments that we believe are sufficiently liquid, and for which there is sufficient data available. These instruments include, without limitation, equity securities (which include some or all of the following: common stocks of companies of any market capitalization; depositary receipts; exchange traded funds; and securities or other interests issued by collective investment funds managed or advised by us), fixed income securities, and a range of derivative instruments. Such derivative instruments include swaps, currency forwards, futures on equity indices, bonds, interest rates, currencies and commodities and options.
