About Fraud Factors

Fraud Factors is a primary data provider focused on differentiated corporate governance insights. Corporate governance issues play out over time and are largely uncorrelated to the market.

We research and develop data sets that identify company-specific risk factors in the medium to long term. We seek to help portfolio managers add alpha through the exploitation of unsystematic risks.

The two key principles that guide us are a) explainability and b) external validation with transparency

Explainable Factors

The rationales for our data sets are rooted in fundamental investing principles, allowing for better appreciation of alpha and risk sources

Validated and Transparent

We focus on factors that have been validated by academic research, where methods and empirical results are well documented
