English term or phrase: enhanced equity indexed and quantitative equity hedge fund products
These products belong to the company's range of "alternative and quantitative investment solutions". What does "quantitative" mean in "quantitative equity hedge fund products"?

English translation:investment products managed using quantitative strategies
Explanation:
"Quantitative" products are usually managed using statistical models which generate suggested positions, indicate entry/exit timing and ensure that the investment remains within set boundaries (sometimes you need to add "hopefully"...). This is in contrast do discretionary investments, where investment decisions are made by a fund manager, or products "simply" tracking a particular benchmark (index).
