By Professor Joel Litman

CEO of Valens Research, Former Deloitte Director, Former PwC Senior Principal, Credit Suisse and American Express Alumni


Friday, 18th June 2021


12:00 PM – 1:30 PM EDT

Professor Joel Litman, President and CEO of Valens Research, will be conducting a complimentary webinar titled, “QGV 50: The Three Factors That Have Consistently Beaten The Market” alongside the firm’s Director of Research, Rob Spivey, on June 18th at 12 PM EDT.

Prof. Litman is one of the most frequent speakers at CFA Society programs globally. He has published in Harvard Business Review and Forbes, and taught and guest-lectured at HBS, LBS, Wharton, Booth, and other top universities worldwide.

Spivey has leveraged his experience on both the buy-side and sell-side of finance, as well as opportunities to work in both the credit and equity markets, to gain a unique perspective of how markets work together and can offer contrary signals. 

The pair will be discussing one of the most successful investing frameworks that Valens Research has created to date, the QGV 50. This simple framework builds off the teachings of two of finance’s most famous professors: Eugene Fama and Kenneth French. 

These University of Chicago professors endeavored to explain better how to predict the returns of a diversified portfolio of stocks. What they found was that a set of only a few different factors could separate the winners from the losers in investing…

  • Profitability;
  • Investment/Growth and;
  • Valuation

Valens Research leveraged Fama’s and French’s theories and improved on them, by incorporating the better insights derived from cleaned-up UAFRS-based data, to design a simple screen that would yield tremendous returns.

The QGV 50 finds the 50 highest-quality, high-growth, and low valuation companies on the market today.

While the Russell 3000 has only returned 8% annually over the last 20 years, the QGV 50 list has averaged 12% each year. This means investors would have doubled the amount of wealth in their portfolio over that time.

To learn more about the QGV 50, including the research behind it, the power of UAFRS-based data, and how you can get a copy, attend the complimentary webinar hosted by Prof. Litman and Rob Spivey.

Join us on Friday, June 18th, at 12 PM EDT.
