Artificial Intelligence and Big Data: the impact of technology and data on alternative investments

Thursday, November 22, 2018
18:00 to 20:30 CET

The combination of low-cost computing capacity and the abundance of available data has led to an increasing number of systematic strategies (active/passive), which offer exposure to Traditional Beta (ETF), Alternative Beta (Smart Beta or Risk / Style Premia) and Alpha (Hedge Funds). What are the main considerations in the evaluation of investment solutions that adopt AI/ML techniques? Discretionary asset managers vs. quantitative asset managers: how do they coexist and what are the strengths and weaknesses that characterise them? A discussion will follow, to review these themes and to consider their implications on the investment strategies.

This event is complimentary. As there is a limited capacity for this event, we ask that you please register as early as possible to reserve your spot.

Please note that the event will be held in Italian.

Quali sono le considerazioni principali nella valutazione di soluzioni d’investimento che adottano tecniche di AI/ML? Gestioni discrezionali vs gestori quantitativi : come coesistono e quali sono punti di forza e debolezza che li caratterizzano? Seguirà una discussione su questi temi, considerandone le implicazioni sulle strategie di investimento.
