CFA Society India is pleased to invite you for a session with Mr. Karthik Kumar – Portfolio Manager – Alternative Equities of Axis Asset Management Company Limited.
Mr. Kumar will be speaking on below:
Historically, we have seen quantitative trading being the domain of sophisticated hedge funds, but as computational power and data storage have become commoditised, traditional funds have begun to borrow quantitative techniques and tools, such as machine learning, advanced mathematical modeling, factor investing, and the use of alternative data, to make trading and portfolio allocation decisions. While some funds opt to take a call based on purely results from quantitative methods, others use it to assist fundamental decision-making on portfolios.
In this session, we intend to cover what exactly is quantitative and factor investing and the different styles and use cases. We will also see how portfolios are constructed using these methods and what are the biases that come with it.
