What does Systematic mean?

Systematic means executed according to a plan or system. We can also speak of systematic learning (i.e. following a system or set of principles) and a systematic search (i.e. one done methodically); the second is only a slight extension in the meaning of the first.

In portfolio management, we define ‘systematic’ as having clearly defined rules that can be defined mathematically (quantitatively, as an equation) and tested empirically (derived from observation or experiment: empirical results that supported the hypothesis. Verifiable or provable by means of observation or experiment).

Systematic then can refer to a systematic research process of testing in search of answers or systematic trading.
