Philosophy

Leading academic expertise. GWG's models were developed by its team of leading academic experts with experience in diverse fields. The new perspective provided by experts outside of finance and economics, combined with the deep investment expertise of GWG founder Richard Cooper, has led to innovative models that exceed the limitations theorized by the efficient markets approach. These models have produced high alpha returns in the U.S. equity markets, specifically in a concentrated basket of index-derived mutual funds that track the S&P 500 and Russell 2000.

Adopting the strengths of basic science research. The GWG investment approach reflects its philosophical roots in basic science research with its emphasis on avoiding preconceived biases and continually verifying results through well-constructed testing and experiment. Consider a new technological concept, quantum computers. A conventional computer stores information as bits, which are represented as 1s and 0s. Quantum computers would rely on quantum bits, or qubits, which can hold values of 1 and 0 or some optimal blend of those two values. A quantum effect known as "entanglement" allows two or more qubits to coordinate their behavior, even when they don't appear to be interacting.

The sum is more than the parts. The General Welfare Group has developed a methodology that simulates the behavior of qubits. GWG has created a series of uncorrelated high alpha strategies in a mutiplex system that substantially eliminates the possibility of random behavior. Like the qubits in a quantum computer, these independent yet coordinated strategies enable a more precise signaling process to create a time series of "entangled" buy and sell strategies. The result is a set of strategies in which the sum is more than the parts. These models have produced high alpha returns in the U.S. equity markets, specifically in a concentrated basket of index-derived mutual funds that track the S&P 500 and Russell 2000.
