InvestiQuant - Crisis Correlation: The Hidden Risk of Diversification December 7, 2017 12:00 ET

Ten years ago on October 11, 2007, the S&P 500 peaked and began its dramatic selloff as the bubbles in the financial and real estate markets burst. Eighteen months later, and 56% lower, the S&P 500 bottomed. With Uncle Sam’s wallet, one of the greatest bull runs in the hundred year history of the stock market began.

But the drumbeats of political, economic and military tensions around the globe have not been louder in decades and many analysts say that a market correction is just around the corner.

Is your portfolio prepared for a 20% correction? How about 40% or more? Join InvestiQuant’s Co-founder and VP of Research, Rob Hanna, as he reviews the historic financial crisis of 2008 and its potential implications for the next market correction. Rob’s eye-opening, quantitative-based discussion will include:
•The surprising correlation of stocks, bonds and commodities in 2008
•Historical analysis of other market crashes and the potential implications for the next one
•An introduction to Modern Portfolio Theory and managed futures and how “smart money” uses them

qplum - Tactical Asset Allocation Using Deep Learning December 14, 2017 12:00 ET

Deep learning and AI need not be used for a sliver of the portfolio dedicated to alternative strategies. In this webinar, we will show how to use Deep Learning in global tactical asset allocation and show how this compares to a traditional institutional investing benchmark and qplum's US investor index. We believe Deep Learning's biggest contribution to asset management will come from using it in the core tactical asset allocation part and not in directly predicting returns.
