At First Quadrant, we ask different questions. Even if we reach the same conclusion as others, we probably took an atypical path to get there. This may sound like splitting hairs, but to us it's as fundamental as... the way we think.
A team of individuals with diverse backgrounds in finance, science, and mathematics generates FQ's research. What emerges is a blend of fundamental rational thought, rigorous quantitative processes, and intuition honed over years of market experience.
