The Parametric Difference
At Parametric, you won’t find market pundits or star stock-pickers, but you will find creative, thoughtful people who build and apply advanced technology to help achieve investment goals. A Parametric investment solution is typically based on rigorous research, a good helping of math, powerful computers, and proprietary software.
We’re not a startup. While experimentation might be good for some things, chances are it is not good for you or your client’s assets.
We’re not a behemoth. Large institutions can offer a lot of products to a lot of people. Yet, they often struggle with depth and focus and do not offer a truly specialized level of service and knowledge.
We think we’ve found the right mix of size and hunger − stability and entrepreneurship. So often in business, you have to choose between a stable industry leader and the dynamic innovator. Parametric brings you both in one partner.
The Arithmetic of Investing is Unforgiving
Costs are certain, volatility dampens growth, and returns are difficult to predict. This sobering reality means long-term investment success is very often the result of portfolio structure and attention to detail. Providing this acumen is our mission − as we work hard to further the goals of investors and the advisors who serve them.
Our clients are comforted by the fact that we’ve been setting the standard in investing for more than 20 years. Importantly, we’re equally known for delivering services beyond the numbers − such as custom portfolio design, portfolio transitions, individualized reporting, and consultative client service − that are demanded by investors with complex needs.
Parametric Technology: Proprietary and Scalable
For a portfolio manager, investment technology is fundamental − it allows us to make intelligent investment decisions and implement them quickly and accurately.
Over the years, we have developed a proprietary technology platform that extends from research to trading and, whenever optimal, we have integrated the best of commercially available applications. Parametric continues to invest heavily in technology both to further our abilities and to drive results for our clients.
Parametric Research: Better to be the Pilot than the Passenger
Parametric is recognized throughout financial and academic circles as a leader in investing. Today, our focus is sharper than ever. The Parametric research team, led by David Stein, PhD, creates the algorithms that drive our investment process, provides custom analysis for clients, and leads investment strategy for the firm. The research team is constantly challenging current practices, testing new ideas, and regularly publishing articles and papers.
