NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Quantitative Investment Decisions, LLC (QID) has been awarded a Top Gun designation by Informa Investment Solutions’ PSN manager database, North America’s longest running database of investment managers. QID has achieved the award for its U.S. Growth equity strategy “Titans,” its Global Balanced ETF strategy, and its Global Balanced Retirement Growth Portfolio.
“We are very pleased with the consistency of our tactical strategy performances,” said Ron Santangelo, QID CIO. “The firm has won Top Gun awards, as a Stock/ETF strategist, for at least one of our seven strategies in seven of the last nine quarters. Recently we extended our quantitative models to include stocks with the development of our Titans portfolio. The model identifies companies that are dominating their industry or are emerging contenders to the leaders. The unique feature of QID’s strategies is that they have built in defensive mechanism that determines when extreme downside risk is present for a sector. If all sectors indicate extreme downside risk, the strategy automatically goes to 100% cash equivalent ETFs or Treasuries. We provide advisors the ability to develop well-diversified portfolios that their clients need, coupled with the extreme downside protection that investors desire. QID also provides tactical strategies for U.S. equity, international equity, global fixed-income, and alternative assets. Our strategies provide financial advisors the ability to use any of our strategies as a tactical complement to a client’s portfolio or as a turnkey solution with diversification across several or all of our strategies.”
