Miquel explores the most common approaches and introduces a new framework to address the portfolio allocation problem in the different signal-factor-security spaces.
Active strategies face the challenge of combining information from different sources in order to maximize that information’s after-cost effectiveness. This challenge is evident for investors who follow a systematic, structured investment process. It is also an issue, although often unrecognized, for more traditional managers who must balance top-down views and the views of in-house and sell-side analysts.
In any case, a decision is made either through default, analysis, or whimsy. This task is commonly called signal weighting, although risk budgeting can be an alternative description. The approach is based on standard methods of portfolio analysis and their extension to dynamic portfolio management.

High inflation has returned in developed markets after decades of lying low. In our latest paper, we show how to build an inflation-based asset allocation strategy using sentiment data and we illustrate that sentiment-based strategies outperform models that depend merely on past observed inflation values.
This year's RavenPack Research Symposium brought two intense days of knowledge sharing in London and New York, from 25 top experts in natural language processing, quantitative investing and machine learning. Together, we explored how firms can leverage new language models to generate alpha, better manage risk and respond to calls for more sustainable investment practices.
Human capital is at the heart of value creation. Our latest research demonstrates how unprecedented workforce insights, sourced from over 200 million job postings, can generate more alpha.
