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 Active Index low cost investment approach currently offers two funds:
The Salient Momentum Fund
The Salient Value Fund
The Salient Portfolio Toolkit® is a cloud based fund management tool available to clients in order to use the above funds (together with traditional passive and/or active funds) to provide tailor made investment solutions.
