SYDNEY, February 3, 2021 – Qontigo, an investment intelligence leader and provider of best-of-breed analytics and world-class indices, has announced that Australian fund manager Redpoint Investment Management has expanded their existing relationship with Qontigo. Redpoint has been a user of Axioma portfolio construction solutions for their Australian and global systematic strategies and will partner with Qontigo to produce joint research focused on customised investment solutions.
For the last ten years, Redpoint has been working with Qontigo (formerly Axioma) tools which include Axioma Portfolio OptimizerTM, Axioma Portfolio AnalyticsTM and the Australian (AU4) and Worldwide (WW4) equity risk factor models.
“It is important to us to have investment solutions that allow us to meet our client’s needs – those that we can use to construct the most efficient portfolios with the best long-term risk-adjusted return profile for our clients … The breadth of Qontigo’s capability enables us to leverage our global stock selection insights across active, sustainable and tax aware investment solutions. Our client’s investment needs are increasingly “multi-objective” in nature and Qontigo’s tools enable both our research and client delivery.”Max Cappetta, Redpoint Investment Management
Axioma Portfolio Optimizer is an open platform which allows managers to seamlessly integrate Axioma’s – or any other third party – risk models, factors and software into their workflow using APIs. Using the tool alongside Axioma Portfolio Analytics, the ability to isolate and analyze sources of risk, assess exposure to factors and generate print-ready reports, is accessible on a single platform.
“Core to our philosophy is simplifying the investment process with this kind of plug-and-play technology,” said Rick Chau, Head of Asia Pacific, Qontigo. “For a boutique firm like Redpoint, it’s important that the portfolio management and trading, research and development, and compliance team are all aligned when it comes to risk and return. We’re very pleased that Redpoint continue to entrust us with this business and look forward to our future together. “
