Rick Roche, CAIA, Managing Director - Little Harbor Advisors

AI and Machine Learners. New Gen Quant Funds. Quant-amental. Digital Disruption. Human/machine intelligence.

Discover the latest trends in quantitative model development. AI and Machine Learning in Investment Management is an insider’s look into the opaque world of quantitative investing and the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, Big and small Data.

The presenter will separate fact from fiction and hype from reality. Learn how asset managers are deploying algorithms and advanced statistical modeling to classify and monetize varied and differentiated sources of potential alpha. Although quants have not taken over Wall Street (not yet, anyway), the audience will be surprised to hear just how widespread automated trading systems (ATS) and algorithmic investing are being deployed in today’s equity markets.
