A Nobel Prize, well-earned.
A new awakening is occurring among serious investors worldwide.
After 80 years of overwhelming dominance, active management—stock picking, market timing, and other strategies based on predictions and forecasts—is giving way to a more modern, scientific, and disciplined approach to the challenges of long-term investing.
This paradigm shift is due, primarily, to the work of Eugene Fama at the University of Chicago. Professor Fama was awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his work on the efficient market theory. Fama, along with his colleague Ken French at Dartmouth, introduced additional research in the early 1990s that indicates markets are multidimensional (in terms of risk and return) and therefore long-term portfolio results can be improved through more thoughtful diversification among these dimensions.
Combining this knowledge with additional research on investor behavior by people like Daniel Kahneman at Princeton University, another Nobel Prize winner, Equius Partners has made a significant positive impact on our clients’ knowledge, attitude, confidence, and investment results for over two decades.
We share this knowledge with you in ways that treat you as more of a partner than a client.
