"The combination of Axiomaâs powerful analytical toolset with QSGâs proprietary pre-trade forecasts marks a significant step toward bridging the gap between idea generation and strategy implementation,â stated Tim Sargent, QSGâs President. âBy leveraging our patent-pending post-trade analytics and tick-based market data, we have been able to create a robust, empirically based, forecast methodology that responds to the need for more accurate trading cost estimates."
Dr. SebastiÃ¡n Ceria, Chief Executive Officer of Axioma, added, "In todayâs complex markets, implementation costs are critical inputs in the successful execution of an investment strategy. The combination of QSGâs impact forecasts and Axiomaâs advanced technology will better equip investment managers to realize alpha while controlling implementation costs.â
As part of the alliance, QSG will leverage Axioma Portfolio, a suite of analytical tools that performs portfolio risk and exposure analysis and portfolio rebalancing, as part of QSGâs own proprietary equity research activities. The addition of Axiomaâs powerful portfolio risk and exposure analytics, portfolio rebalancing and optimization tools to QSGâs internal research platform will speed the development of exciting new equity research innovations for clients.
