Chris Guthrie, president of Hillsdale Investment Management Inc. and co-manager ofHillsdale Canadian Aggressive Hedged, is wary of emotional biases and instinctive human traits that can influence decision-making. Instead, he puts his trust in quantitative techniques that are not only measurable but can be back-tested over long periods.

He has, however, devised ways to objectively measure market sentiment, and this information plays a role in his stock-trading decisions as well as the portfolio's short and long exposure.

"We believe that quantitative methods, systematic observation and simulation lead to rational decision-making and superior investment results," says Guthrie, whose team manages three hedge funds, a long-only fund and a large chunk of private and institutional money.
