RMI Methodology. Risk Management Indices (“RMI”) methodology is based on a universal framework which considers markets as natural dynamic systems with both momentum and reversion forces acting across different holding periods. RMI captures the benefits of both growth and value factors in a dynamic, effective construct but also diversifies portfolio risk by generating a different return pattern by diversifying style factor.
