Buy-Side Fireside Chat and Roundtable: Confessions of a Quant with Avi Rosenbluth

May 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Thursday, May 20

The Alternative Data council presents this fireside chat and roundtable discussion with Avi Rosenbluth, a quantitative portfolio manager.  Avi has deep and broad experience utilizing data to make investment decisions through recent executive roles at AQR and Goldman Sachs.  This will be a wonderful opportunity to hear from a typically tight-lipped section of the industry and to discuss your thoughts with peers.

Topics will include:

  • the data requirements of discretionary vs. systematic strategies and how alternative data is facilitating some approaches and may hamstring others
  • the importance of timely, frequent, curated and reliable data and what happens when any of these elements is not present
  • what machine learning can and cannot do
  • advice for vendors on when to pursue and when to abandon building out a particular data set
  • the role of regulations and standards in supporting the growth of the alternative data industry.
