How Professionals See Risk & Return (QIF 2021)

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

We kicked off our first webinar marking the start of the Quantitative Investing Festival (QIF 2021) on Saturday 11 September 2021. It was a great session. Many thanks to Ou Da Wei and Bernard Chan from iFAST Global Markets. And of course not forgetting our wonderful audience for their time and contributing to a lively Q&A.

Highlights of The Presentation

For the benefit of those who miss the event, these are the highlights of the presentation.

  1. Retail focus on Returns while Professionals focus on Risk.

  2. Risk is not only about losses. It is also about the uncertainty of your investment outcome.

  3. Uncertainty can have a huge impact on your investment outcome.

  4. Volatility is a gauge of uncertainty.

  5. The higher the volatility, the larger the maximum loss.

  6. Higher risk does not necessarily mean a higher return. In fact, it can mean the reverse if you use it in the wrong context.

  7. Picking your next Amazon or Apple is not as easy as you think.

  8. You may not always win with buy-and-hold.

  9. Risk can be effectively managed through diversification and risk management techniques.

  10. The 3 levels of diversification - (1) securities, (2) asset classes, and (3) strategies.

  11. Using risk management techniques - sizing, entries/exits, stop loss, hedging.

  12. The performance of our multi-strategy model.
