Investment Philosophy

The Salient Investment philosophy is separated into two sections covering “active” (quant model assisted stock picking) and “passive” (rules-based smart index) approaches to investing respectively:


The Salient Active Quants process (as used in the Salient SA Hedge Fund) aims to generate alpha through the simultaneous exploitation of a number of underlying (i) behavioural errors using (ii) powerful information processing techniques.

Factor Indices

Our low cost Active Index investment approach allows clients to tailor make their own Factor based and Low Volatility Indices.

The A-Dex Prism is a cloud based fund management tool available to clients to apply risk budgeting in their portfolio construction. Active Indices can be combined together with traditional passive and/or active funds to provide investments solutions that are efficient both in terms of risk and cost.
