    • We invest long and short across six different asset groups: stocks of major developed markets, country indices, bond futures, interest rate futures, currencies and commodities. We employ market-neutral, long-short strategies across these asset groups based on four investment styles: 
       
      Value — the tendency for relatively cheap assets to outperform relatively expensive ones

      Momentum — the tendency for an asset’s recent relative performance to continue in the future

      Carry — the tendency for higher-yielding assets to provide higher returns than lower-yielding assets

      Defensive — the tendency for lower-risk and higher-quality assets to generate higher risk-adjusted returns

      Each of these styles have historically had low correlations to one another, so we expect them to be profitable at different times for different reasons. Thus, a portfolio combining all four of them seeks to benefit from their expected low correlations to one another and could help provide a more robust, dependable stream of returns.

    • An investment in any of the AQR Funds involves risk, including loss of principal. The value of the Funds’ portfolio holdings may fluctuate in response to events specific to the companies in which the Fund invests, as well as economic, political or social events in the United States or abroad. Please refer to the prospectus for complete information regarding all risks associated with the Funds. An investor considering the Funds should be able to tolerate potentially wide price fluctuations. The Funds are subject to high portfolio turnover risk as a result of frequent trading, and thus, will incur a higher level of brokerage fees and commissions, and cause a higher level of tax liability to shareholders in the Funds. The Funds may attempt to increase its income or total return through the use of securities lending, and they may be subject to the possibility of additional loss as a result of this investment technique.
