Ernest Chan Discusses Corrective AI and Conditional Portfolio Optimization
Asset managers have struggled to apply machine learning to generate trading signals successfully. Instead, applying machine learning to determine the probability of profit of existing trading signals is very fruitful - this is Corrective AI. Taking this one step further, we developed Conditional Portfolio Optimization, a portfolio optimization technique that adapts to market regimes via machine learning. Applications on portfolios in vastly different markets suggest that CPO can outperform traditional optimization methods under varying market regimes. Dr. Hossein Kazemi, Senior Advisor of the FDP Institute will explore this further with Ernest Chan, Founder & CEO, Predictnow.ai Inc.

The Financial Data Professional Institute (FDPI), established by CAIA Association, has designed a self-study program to provide financial professionals with an efficient path to learn the essential aspects of financial data science.

Presentation will last approximately 45 minutes followed by 15 minutes for Q&A. Session will be recorded, and the recording link will be sent to those who have registered for the webinar.

Dec 12, 2022 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
