When you open an account with Scholtz & Company, you are entrusting your assets to a firm with over twenty years experience of proven results, and a team dedicated to ensuring that you are given superior investment service. We believe that we have developed an investment process that allows us to do more than just compete with larger financial services firms. This process creates a competitive edge by addressing a fundamental problem faced by all financial advisory firms: how to break down the overwhelming flood of relevant data in order to make successful investment decisions. We believe that the solution to this problem lies at the heart of our investment process – Quantitative Analysis. Quantitative Analysis is a relatively new form of evaluating securities made possible by the development of powerful computing technology and methods for gathering, storing, and organizing large amounts of financial data. For a detailed discussion of the history, background, and development of quantitative analysis, please read the financial brief below by Peter Scholtz, President of Scholtz & Company. The basic premise of quantitative analysis is twofold: (1) there are statistical relationships between certain fundamental, technical, and/or psychological metrics and subsequent investment performance and (2) these relationships can be identified and exploited in a systematic manner. The careful application of this premise should lead to the selection of securities that outperform the market over the long-term.
