A.I. Managed Futures Volatility Index

The Arrow Insights Quality Value Momentum Index (AIQVM)1 employs quality and value metrics to select the top 50 stocks from several thousand large–, medium– and small–capitalization weighted (CAP) companies from the Ford Equity Research universe. Over the past five years, AIQVM underperformed the Standard & Poor's 500's CAP and Equal Weight (EqW) Indexes (Figure 1). Since July 2016, AIQVM has bested the CAP and EqW versions of the S&P–this at a time when the S&P Growth index bested the S&P Value Index. Over the past three months, AIQVM has bested CAP, EqW and all S&P equity sectors with the exception of the technology sector (Figure 2).
