Event Abstract:

In this presentation, we give an overview of Quantitative Investment Solutions (QIS) in 2023. The use of QIS has continued to grow across the financial industry, providing access to risk premia, diversifying returns, and alternative investment solutions in all liquid asset classes to a full spectrum of investors. We explore a range of solutions and illustrate how QIS can incorporate almost all aspects of quantitative finance, including machine learning, natural language processing (NLP), factor models, optimization, optimal trading execution, option pricing and more.
