What We Offer

A Quantitative Approach Built on Earnings Estimate Research

Excess returns start with market anomalies—that’s what 40 years of research and investing has shown us.

The value we offer financial professionals begins with the market anomaly with which the Zacks name has become synonymous: earnings estimate revisions. From this foundational insight, we have designed proprietary tools, turnkey solutions and investment services with one singular purpose: to methodically reduce risk and improve returns over time.

The Zacks Investment Process

Our investment process is a highly disciplined set of steps that encompass our most reliable alpha models and analytical tools, with a daily influx of independent research and manager insight.

“There are two main reasons our investment process has not changed over the years: first, we have a focus on long-term growth, so by definition our strategies require time to fulfill their objectives. And second, it works. We continue to use this methodology because it has proven itself time and again.”

CEO, Senior Portfolio Manager
