Taking a closer look at data-driven approach to hedge fund strategies to break into the lucrative world of hedge funds, including revealing underlying patterns, correlations, and trends as well as using statistical machine learning techniques to develop quantitative models to predict price movements in financial markets and in order to aid pattern recognition in financial data sets


Data-driven approach requires the need to innovate and the importance of using the right data to build on a foundation to generate higher returns and optimize investment and increase performance potential. This includes the utilization of algorithm models for making investment decisions as well as investment management that analyses historical financial data to reveal underlying patterns, correlations, and trends, including using statistical machine learning techniques to develop quantitative models to predict price movements in financial markets as well as developing tests and tools to aid pattern recognition in financial data sets.

As such, World Data-Driven approach to Hedge Fund Strategies Conference 2016, provides an opportunity to take a closer look at technology and research platform that strives to provide a 360-degree view of underlying patterns, correlations and trends as well as provide massive amounts of data that can be churned to produce hundreds of forecasts, develop quantitative models to predict price movements in financial markets in order to aid pattern recognition in financial data sets that will be integrated with risk management, portfolio optimization, efficient trading and swift execution to guide investment in thousands of securities, including equities, fixed income, commodities, currencies and liquid derivatives, in order to break into the lucrative world of hedge funds.
