I actually used my CFA knowledge today!

I am comparing four different money managers SMAs - and I used all the different sharpe ratios, information ratios, alphas, betas, etc… to paint a colorful picture for investment, and to brutally rip into a manager who is playing in the large cap active management sandbox.

Thought you all should know.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Don’t waste your valuable time with unreliable and bogus strategies for passing the CFA® exam. Schweser prepares you for success with adaptive tools, expert instruction, and proven study techniques personalized to your unique learning style.

I’m doing pretty much the same thing right now- I’m also looking at batting averages, which I had never heard of til today

Ha. For real. IDK why it’s not in there either.

I used my CFA knowledge (VaR, CVaR etc) the other day in a job interview. Didn’t get the job, for which I put the blame solely on CFAI. 

If you're the first out the door, that's not called panicking

Then you realize they all will eventually underperform the S&P 500, but at least you’re keeping them in business I guess…

more close to CIPM materials // alpha means Jensens’  or any kind of multifactor(FF, Carhart)? // Jensens’ is totally garbage except for estimating market exposure at least.. if alpha totally bull****…

for the better life
keep flowin', that's all
