Founded in December 2000, Sabrient Systems is a leading independent equity research firm specializing in custom quantitative investment strategies. Our strategies are used by hedge funds, mutual funds, and other professional money managers, as well as to create unique indexes that are tracked by exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and Unit Investment Trusts (UITs). We also provide independent research and tools, based on our quantitative analysis, to institutional retail firms, and individual investors.
Sabrient employs scientific and statistically sound methods in the design of our systems and methodologies. We are committed to seeking new and better ways to measure, analyze and interpret the data in order to continue to adapt to changing market conditions and to substantially improve the investment results of our clients.
In August 2011 Sabrient acquired Gradient Analytics, a leading qualitative equity research firm in the field of earnings quality, forensic accounting and insider trading analysis. Gradient has established its leadership position since Dr. Donn Vickery began publishing research in 2002 with the mission of providing clients with academically rigorous, unbiased, objective insight into the financial performance and equity values of publicly traded companies.
Neither Gradient nor Sabrient is affiliated with any investment bank, underwriter, brokerage or trading firm, or fund, and it does not manage money for others nor perform contract research for hire.
In 2010 Sabrient formed Stutland Volatility Funds (SVF) with Stutland Volatility Group of Chicago. SVF is an asset management firm offering a suite of long/short quant funds designed to deliver superior stock selection with enhanced risk management. Other than through SVF, Sabrient does not manage money for others.
