Hype or fact: Do fundamental analyst need to learn Python, R, MATLAB, etc.??
I wonder what people’s thoughts are on this. Seems that the use of ML/AI is gaining traction but also that there is hype around it. Nonetheless, in order to manage career risk, I wonder if anyone has taken this seriously as has devoted efforts to learn any coding (Python, R etc.) and visualization software (Tableu). I work for a traditional long only fundamental shop so we don’t use much if any of that.
And then, what is the best way to acquired those skills? After MBA and CFA, I do not know if I can enroll in school again.
