Institutional literature

Why invest in low volatility equities?

  • We expect to deliver market-like returns with strong down-market outperformance
  • While many investors haven’t been rewarded for up to a third of their equity market risk, we aim to only take on risk that is compensated
  • The quantitative nature of our strategy allows us to offer it at a lower cost than traditional active investment management

TD Greystone Equities

Core: We seek out companies that have demonstrated superior earnings growth, positive business momentum and sustainable profitability while ensuring we do not overpay for these growth characteristics.

Income & Growth: Our strategy focuses on income. We seek mature companies with attractive dividend yields. A key distinction is that we emphasize predictable profitability and rising earnings to support the income stream, and often capital appreciation of higher stock prices.
