Data sits at the heart of everything we do. We collect it, then we weigh, measure and analyse it, hunting for patterns. Ex-ante is not a hope anymore.
Using advanced unstructured data analysis tools, we have been able to distill research to its core elements, using technology to make us more efficient in the discovery of relevant and accurate information.
What does it take to be a good analyst?
How do analysts compare?
How can they get better?
…and what is the “value” of research, piece by piece, line by line.
While history may not be a guarantee of future performance, we have learned that it provides an excellent guide. By analysing historic behaviours, opinions, comments and theses, we are able to make ever more accurate predictions as to the future efficacy of an idea in any number of circumstances.
80% of a portfolio's return is in its composition: the timing, the sizing, and interplay of names.
How do you do over time and in various market conditions?
What are your biases? What makes you tick? How can you get better?
Does P&L in the ‘bank’ increase your risk taking skill, or diminish it?
