Quality Investing – Managing Volatility, Delivering Returns

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.

Institutional investors 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

Investors, both taxable and tax-exempt, also are showing more interest in high-quality municipal bonds as a source of yield in this extended period of low interest rates. But this is a large and inefficient market with more than 50,000 issuers and more than 1.5 million outstanding issues. The sectors, revenue sources, and securities structures allow, and require, proprietary credit analysis and evaluation. Northern Trust experts will discuss factors used to identify quality municipal securities, including:
• Creditworthiness of individual issuers and issues
• Trading levels, supply and demand, and other relevant market factors
• Relative value of municipals to other fixed income markets

Join us for a look at quality investing in today’s markets.
