Last week we made a call that the OPEC meetings would most likely result in a maintenance of the status quo and though this initially seemed to be the case, things changed rather quickly.
Oil markets have again started to make headlines in recent weeks with worries over a global supply glut seeing prices for both Brent and WTI plummet 31% since the beginning of October. Though the last couple of days saw some of those losses being clawed back following outages in the North Sea and expectations of production cuts by OPEC, most analysts remain bearish over the medium-term. Given oil’s centrality to the global economy, we took a step back to unravel and contextualize some of the shifts and dynamics that have been taking place in this strategically important commodity. This will be the first of a series of articles dealing with the primary drivers of oil markets in recent years beginning with Saudi Arabia.

Quantitative analysis models form a key element of our investment process to aid stock selection. However, we do not blindly follow the outputs and carry out further analysis to ensure the models are not being fooled by the data inputs. Improving the strategy success rate from 53 out 100 picks to 54 out of 100 will significantly improve portfolio return on risk. Since the 1990’s we have combined quantitative and qualitative research in order to harness the best of both methods and thereby reduce the mistakes that either approaches alone tend to make.
