Epsilon Asset Management

The intersection of active and passiveSM

Active management is at an inflection point

While passive management simplifies many aspects of investing, alpha generation through active management is necessary for organizations to meet their future obligations. After an entire market cycle of disappointment from active management, the question for institutional investors is how to generate alpha in a better way.

At Epsilon, we create investment strategies from big data signals generated by the entire active management community.  We think this approach is uniquely suited to solve the active/passive dilemma.  It provides hybrid flexibility: active orientation geared towards top quartile long equity alpha, married with lower fees, better transparency, and daily liquidity.

Our Objectives

Ultimately, we want to deliver consistent alpha to our clients.  However, we believe that short-term performance is at the mercy of markets.  Long-term results comes from process and a disciplined adherence to objectives:

The Epsilon Flywheel

So how do we deliver passive characteristics with active alpha? By removing the expensive pursuit of security selection. We do this through big data analysis of regulatory filings. We tap into the collective wisdom of all active managers to distill their cumulative research. This provides tremendous cost advantages for our products, which we can pass on to our investors. Our focus can then be on unbiased portfolio construction, the key ingredient in delivering consistent alpha.
