Senior members of our QPS team have decades of experience working together as a team for over 25 years, publishing:

  • QPS FICC since 1990

Extensive analysis spanning major steps of the investment process

Our QPS team produces unique content that is:

  • Objective – no market views. Analysis is based on innovative empirical studies or models
  • Practical – relevant, implementable findings in response to questions from practitioners
  • Academically recognised – published in key industry journals (Journal of Portfolio Management, Journal of Fixed Income, Journal of Alternative Investments, Journal of Index Investing).

QPS also hosts Advisory Councils in New York and London. The Americas Advisory Council, held annually for the past 18 years, and the Europe Advisory Council, held annually for the past 14 years, provide a great opportunity for two-way dialogue with large institutional investors.
