When great minds are free to explore the question: What if?

At QS Investors, our team of mathematicians, engineers, scientists, technologists, finance and investment professionals converge on this question unencumbered by organizational limitations. Our researchers have the freedom, tools and technology to unleash the power of “what if?”

By digging deeper into big data, market dynamics, asset classes, performance factors and human behaviors, our team challenges every theory and assumption, cross-examines every revelation, and draws innovation from exploration across the unknown.

Question Everything

“We talk about having a hierarchy of ideas rather than people. A set of colleagues that bring different ways that they would solve a problem ultimately leads to the best results for our clients” 
- Janet Campagna 
Chief Executive Officer

We activate our advanced knowledge in a quantitative approach that systematically seeks to deliver higher-probability investment outcomes for investors – in other words, elevating certainty.
