A Pioneer in the Field of Quantitative Investment>
Bob Haugen, PhD was a pioneer in the field of quantitative investment and the leading
proponent of the case that stock markets are inherently inefficient. In the mid-1990s, toward the end
of his 30-year academic career in finance, Bob published his breakthrough research on the predictive
power of an expected return factor model, in the Journal of Financial Economics.

views and been consistently rewarded with an investment edge for their portfolios.
