The value proposition of Alphajet Fair Investors is not to generate extraordinary alpha but to seek to make outperformance ordinary.
AddAlpha's origins lie in Cartesian philosophy. In his book, Discourse of the Method, René Descartes points out two factors that are problematic in the access to knowledge. First, opinion, which is the idea that everyone shares. The idea that has no justification. Second, our very constitution as human beings. Our five senses give us an altered perception of reality.
AddAlpha is a methodical approach that leaves no room for behavioral bias.
