Join us on September 13th for a webinar led by Dr. Jessica Stauth, our managing director of research, where she will discuss how we evaluate algorithms for allocations.
During this session, Jess will walk through detailed analyses of several candidate algorithms and explore the flaws that she finds in them. She will show you how to avoid these pitfalls and what educational resources are available. Common errors she will discuss include:
- Holding a net-long portfolio
- Portfolio with high beta to the overall market
- Having an outsized position in a single security
- Mixing two mismatched strategies
- Trading in small-cap, illiquid securities
At the end of the session, Jess will open up a Q&A session. To attend, register for the webinar here. After the event, we will also share the recording here.
