    • The Fund seeks to deliver positive absolute returns by taking long and short positions in equity and equity-related instruments that, based on proprietary quantitative models, are deemed to be either undervalued (and likely to increase in price) or overvalued (and likely to decrease in price). 

      The Fund is designed to be market neutral, targeting a portfolio beta to equity markets of zero over a normal business cycle. We construct the portfolio based on our global security selection and asset allocation models, employing the following indicators:

      • Value indicators to identify investments that appear cheap based on fundamental measures, such as price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios.
      • Momentum indicators, such as simple price momentum, to identify investments with strong short-term performance.
      • Quality indicators to identify stable companies in good business health, including those with strong profitability and stable earnings.
      Applying these and other proprietary indicators, we take long or short positions in industries, sectors and companies that we believe are conditionally attractive or unattractive. The result is a portfolio that seeks positive absolute returns with close to zero equity market beta.


      • AQR Equity Market Neutral Fund: The Fund uses derivatives to manage its country and currency exposures. The use of derivatives exposes the Fund to additional risks including increased volatility, lack of liquidity, and possible losses greater than the Fund's initial investment as well as increased transaction costs. Foreign investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuations and political uncertainty.
