“The art is in the combination of these models, where we can effectively recognize that banks in the US are not perfectly correlated with banks outside the US, or that value in the US may perform differently than value in emerging markets.”Melissa Brown, Head of Applied Research at Qontigo. Waters Technology, December 2020
