In this article the authors examine our findings about the importance of diversification in a multi-strategy for which all the individual strategies are value-centric.

Additionally, we found that they depend on exogenous market conditions, such as overall financial asset returns and volatility. This has interesting implications when considering market neutral multi-strategies. We considered top-down country allocation in developed and emerging market equities, bonds, and currencies as well as bottom-up stock selection in large cap and small cap stocks in the US, Japan, and Germany.
