We live in an increasingly connected world which consumes and produces an unprecedented volume of data. AI is there to collect, analyse, draw insights and make decisions. Hedge fund managers are using a growing range of alternative data to seek alpha. Algorithms are better disposed to execute tasks requiring precision and speed. Will human portfolio managers become extinct species? And what would be the best way for asset management firms to work with deep tech?
JIAM is pleased to invite Clara Durodié, author of a one-of-a-kind book which demystifies AI for financial services professionals, Kenny Lam. CEO of Two Sigma Asia-Pacific and Michinori Kanokogi, experienced portfolio manager and translator of several respected publications in machine learning and portfolio management.
