"Alpha" (the Greek letter α) is a term used in investing to describe a strategy's ability to beat the market, or its "edge." Alpha is thus also often referred to as “excess return” or “abnormal rate of return,” which refers to the idea that markets are efficient, and so there is no way to systematically earn returns that exceed the broad market as a whole.
We believe that Outsourced Alpha refers to any way you can gain an edge as an advisor, be that with market performance; competitive advantage with regard to product; or improved efficiency as a firm.
Outsourced refers to working with trusted partners, each experts in their field, with the goal of turbo-charging your business.
