Quality White Paper

Investing in quality companies is rooted in a thorough fundamental analysis of all aspects of a company’s financial strength, growth prospects, profit and income generation and overall stability. While various definitions of “quality” abound, we believe that most companies considered to be in this category possess similar attributes: consistent profit and income generation, reduced volatility, downside protection in bear markets, and superior risk-adjusted returns as compared to a market index. Quality companies have historically demonstrated predictable periods of outperformance within a market cycle as well as above-average returns versus the S&P 500 over longer time periods. Investing in such companies offers a source of diversification beyond traditional style boxes and should be considered as part of an investor’s overall asset allocation decision.
