Quant and the Crisis: Implications for Institutional Asset Owners

28th May 2020
2:00pm BST

This webinar will bring together Institutional Investor’s global community of asset owners who deploy assets using systematic and factor based strategies. It will discuss how these strategies have performed through the crisis, and what the expectations for the future are. Topics for discussion will include:

  • What should be the role of quant/systematic strategies in a portfolio during a crisis, and as we emerge from it?
  • Are there models, which predicted the financial aspect of this crisis?
  • What do models tell us about the likely course of economic recovery?
  • What are the advantages of quant over fundamental in a time like this? Does history hold any clues?
  • Have strategies preformed as expected? Why have some worked and others not?
  • For those asset allocators debating using cheaper commoditised strategies or more specialised strategies, has this crisis provided any answers?
  • Looking to the future, which factors should perform best?
  • Some sectors have been particularly hard hit during this crisis. Can you be sector neutral?
  • How should asset owners approach the universe of alternative, new (and not so new) data sets?

This webinar is one hour long and is scheduled to start at 2:00pm BST (3:00pm CET) Add to Calendar
