CE Event: Algorithmic Trading: An Introduction to the Nuts and Bolts (Podcast)

Algorithmic trading is not well understood by a large segment of the financial community. To many, algorithmic trading, or “algo trading”, simply means “automated trading.” However, the term actually encompasses a wide variety of trading methods, strategies, and time horizons, and practitioners of one variation of algo trading may have little knowledge of another style.

In this webinar, portfolio manager Parijat Garg, CFA, will provide a general introduction to algorithmic trading, give some examples of what strategies look like, and discuss some of the operational realities of algo trading.

  • The meaning of, and differences between, algorithmic trading, automated trading, high-frequency trading, low-latency trading, and pure and statistical arbitrage

  • Basic methodologies and challenges of building an algo strategy and guidance on deploying it

  • The sources of risk in algorithmic trading strategies

  • Eye-opening facts about today’s electronic markets and the companies that trade within these markets

CE Event: Practitioners' Insights: Asset Allocation (Podcast)

In investments, portfolio diversification may be the only free lunch. But does it really work?

The global crisis that began in 2008 has called into question many of the basic assumptions and central tenets of Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT). The result is that the benefits of portfolio diversification, the discipline of adhering to a strategic asset allocation policy, and other practical implications of MPT are being challenged. After providing a brief overview of traditional MPT--first developed by Harry Markowitz in 1952, and enhanced in the following decades by numerous scholars and financial economists, including William Sharpe, Robert Merton, and Eugene Fama--Dr. Peng Chen, CFA, will address two key questions:

1. Are asset allocation and portfolio diversification still valid?

2. How should asset allocation and portfolio diversification be implemented in a non-normal world?

CE Event: Trust and the Future of Finance (Podcast)

The financial crisis led to a loss of trust in providers, regulators, and financial innovation among consumers, Merton observes. Some have proposed technology can stand in for trust, but he says fintech cannot create trust or succeed without it. Two things, however, can substitute for trust: verification and transparency. Some forms of fintech can provide verification, but financial advice tends to be opaque rather than transparent. Merton also discusses data showing retail investors as less satisfied with cost disclosures and performance from active portfolio managers than institutional investors.

CE Event: The Role of Central Banking in Crisis Management (Podcast)

Fischer, himself former governor of the Bank of Israel and former vice chair of the US Federal Reserve Board of Governors, introduces the three heads of the major central banks during the financial crisis. Their discussion focuses on the causes and nature of the crisis, the lessons they learned, and what they would each do differently.

One of the chief points Bernanke emphasizes is distinguishing between a financial crisis, which he describes as any kind of big shock to the financial system, and a panic, which is a general run on intermediaries and a very particular kind of crisis. In the United States, “The panic was the most important thing,” he says. He doesn’t think the Great Recession would have been so severe without it. His recommendation: “In the crisis, look for the short-term liabilities, look for where the run potential is.” He also stresses how critical it is for central bankers to have robust lender of last resort tools to guard against future panics.

“The essence of this was a run,” King says. “The impact on the economy was based on that run.” His major takeaways are that the banking system was undercapitalized, lender of last resort facilities were inadequate, and politics were problematic.

One of the major lessons for Trichet was the speed with which the run took place. It created an unprecedented contagion. “The herd formed up in one day,” he says. And while he acknowledges that we are safer today, he still sees some of the same issues. “We are still in this interconnection, and we have to prepare.” He stresses the importance of maintaining central bank independence. He also points out the resilience of the often-maligned eurozone. Although 5 of the 19 countries had a dramatic crisis, the union still held.

Der Schwerpunkt dieses Seminar liegt auf fortgeschrittenen Anwendungsbeispielen, die Handhabe von R mittels der Entwicklungsumgebung RStudio wird nur sehr kurz wiederholt.

CE Event: Reflections on the Financial Crisis (Podcast)

Scholes presents his research into what the markets were saying about the risks in the S&P 500 in the years before, during, and after the financial crisis, focusing on two-month put options. He concentrates on the tails of the distributions. “When tail events occur,” Scholes says, “then risky assets all behave as one.” He notes the cliché that ‘diversification is free’ and instead observes, “In times of stress, it isn’t enough.” He highlights four distinct periods in the data, which cover the years 2005 to 2009.

CEE: A Neighbours' perspective

The CEE region is positioned for growth over the coming years due to a variety of contributing factors, mainly cost-efficiency of business development, implementation, and management. However, developments in this region are still somewhat underappreciated by many market participants and CFA Society Austria would like to shed more light on this region.

This year’s autumn live event will feature key-note speeches by Dr. Daniel Thorniley, senior economists and a panel discussion with board members of local CFA societies - aiming to deliver opinions and perspectives on the current state and way forward in the CEE region.

We trust that the conference will be a productive platform to gain new insights, shape new investment ideas, strengthen collaborative efforts, and create unique networking opportunities.
