    Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at 9:00 AM until 10:00 AMEastern Daylight Time

    Zoom Web Conference

    Investing, as it is practiced by professionals today, is an elaborate and sophisticated process that relies on multiple inputs. These include analysis of the macroeconomic, geopolitical and market environments; assessments of how these impact asset classes and individual securities; decisions on what asset classes and securities to have in portfolios, and in what proportions; and evaluation of portfolio performance. The process has become a lot more effective and robust through advances in financial analytics. This talk will discuss how statistics, time series analysis, optimization, simulation, stochastic calculus and other methodologies are used in the investing profession.
