AQR Diversified Arbitrage: A Multifaceted Approach to Arbitrage Investing
Times of market dislocation can create interesting opportunities across the arbitrage spectrum.
All Mutual Funds
As a pioneer in alternative investing, AQR has a long track record of managing the complexities of these types of strategies. By investing long and short, and balancing exposure to factors and asset classes, our alternative strategies are built to seek returns in both up and down markets. We offer both absolute return strategies, which target zero exposure to traditional markets, either at all times, or on average, and total return strategies, which maintain some exposure to traditional markets.
For more than two decades, our overall goal has been to build compelling and repeatable investments that are highly diversified across signals and regions, and within a risk-managed framework. We apply this systematic approach across our strategies, catering to the widespread investment needs of our clients.
We aim to generate consistent outperformance by systematically applying investment themes across securities. We believe that a multi-factor investment approach, harnessing underlying drivers of performance, has the potential to generate excess returns that are uncorrelated to other asset classes as well as traditional fixed income managers.
Leveraging the full research and investment capabilities of AQR, these strategies offer a strategic blend of asset classes such as equities, fixed income, currency, and commodities—combined to create broadly diversified portfolios seeking maximum returns within a risk-managed framework.
In addition to mutual funds, AQR strategies are available through a variety of investment vehicles such as model portfolios, separately managed accounts, limited partnerships, collective investment trusts and sub-advised portfolios. We also offer tax-aware implementations of some of our strategies.
