Tracking Error

Definition

A measure of risk for an investment strategy with a benchmark. The statistic is the standard deviation of returns in excess of the benchmark. See The Trouble with Tracking Error.

Approach

We design intelligent investment systems that evolve as financial markets change through time. Our decisions are driven by the empirical analysis of data, rather than instinct or intuition.

Strategies

Winton’s systematic strategies are all underpinned by the belief that markets, rather than being efficient, exhibit hard-to-detect yet identifiable patterns.

Research

Winton’s considerable investment in scientific research has produced a wide range of new innovations ranging from new investment strategies to enhanced research methodology.
