Equity Trading Strategy

BCA's Equity Trading Strategy Service (ETS) combines our top down-approach with a 26 factor proprietary model to deliver a unique solution for understanding, analysing and extracting alpha from global equity markets.

ETS builds on BCA's global macroeconomic thematic research, adding sector and quantitative analytics to deliver a consistent framework that connects the dots from analysis to actionable investment conclusions. Through our proprietary model, we rank and score individual equities to support a broad set of investment strategies and apply macro and sector views to single-name investments.

The web-based platform uses over 24 quantitative factors to rank approximately 10,000 individual stocks, allowing you to find stocks with winning characteristics. Historically, the top-decile of stocks ranked using the BCA Score have outperformed stocks in the bottom decile by over 25% a year.
