  • Quality Investing: Managing Risk, Seeking to Deliver Returns Jul 16 2015 8:15 pm UTC 60 mins
    Meggan Friedman & Ben Goetsch, Northern Trust Investment Strategists
    Investors are increasingly turning to quality investing as a way to manage turbulent market conditions. Our research reveals that quality driven strategies historically have offered stronger, more consistent returns with less volatility than other approaches. But “quality” is one of the most overused and hardest-to-define ideas in investing. In this webinar, Northern Trust experts explore the definition of quality as an investing factor, its application across different asset classes, and why these approaches appeal to risk-averse investors.

    Financial advisors attending this webinar will learn how Northern Trust applies the quality factor to equity strategies. Our experts will take a deeper dive into quality and discuss:
    • Our multidimensional definition of quality
    • How the Northern Trust Quality Score (NTQS) helps identify high-quality stocks
    • How our models are tailored to individual market segments
