We use data and models, when possible. We apply human judgement, when needed.
We seek to continuously expand our battery of proprietary data sets and models. But human judgment is often necessary. A quantamental approach wins.
We embrace non-linearity and regime shifts.
We understand that markets are complex, and that relationships are highly non-linear. In addition, local economic factors are often dominated by the global macro regime. Correlation breaks are opportunities.
We have a broad horizon.
The world we are in requires a diverse approach. Beyond traditional macro forces, we put significant weight on political catalysts, asset allocation shifts, as well as shorter-term positioning considerations. A holistic approach is superior.
We think in probabilities.
Point estimates convey false conviction. Probabilities are more helpful concepts to generate investment ideas.
Good strategy is about understanding the entire probability distribution.
Exante is 100% independent.
We do not manage any money. We work only to serve our clients.
Exante Macro Strategy is not about providing economic forecasts.
We do not focus on the data calendar (the robots can do that!).
