Today, the field of language AI is at an exhilarating turning point, on the cusp of transforming the financial industry and spawning new multi-billion-dollar markets.
This year's RavenPack symposium brings together top experts in natural language processing, quantitative investing, and machine learning to explore how firms can leverage new language models to not only generate alpha and better manage risk, but respond to calls for more socially responsible investment practices.
The agenda of the symposium will cover the latest developments in Language AI including:
What Is Disruptive Technology? An innovation that significantly alters the way that consumers, industries, or businesses operate. Recent developments in Language AI are poised to become the next disruptive innovation, resembling in their own times, those of the telegraph, the telephone, and the computer. Companies that fail to account for the effects of Language AI may find themselves losing market share to competitors that have discovered ways to integrate this new disruptive technology.
Animal spirits" is a term that describes the instincts and emotions driving human behavior in economic settings. In recent years, this concept has been discussed in relation to the emerging field of narrative economics. When unscheduled events hit the stock market, from corporate scandals and technological breakthroughs to recessions and pandemics, relationships driving returns change in unforeseeable ways. To deal with uncertainty, investors engage in narratives which simplify the complexity of real-time, non-routine change. Based on his recent book, Pr Mangee will describe the Novelty- Narrative Hypothesis for the U.S. stock market by conducting a comprehensive investigation of unscheduled events using big data textual analysis of financial news.
Language AI has a wide range of applications beyond simply gauging sentiment. The most powerful trading indicators account for context and help investors better understand the half-life of a sentiment signal. In his talk, Peter will show how to utilize the RavenPack Event Taxonomy to create three thematic signals including Earnings Intelligence, ESG Controversy, and Economic Activity. He will demonstrate how these signals can help drive alpha by providing additional context and reducing noise in investment strategies across multiple holding periods and asset classes.
Are we still in a heuristic world, or are self-taught models dominating now? Have transformers truly changed the landscape? are ML-driven engines better suited for specific context?

The AUM tracking thematic equity investments has grown considerably over the last decade. Equities selected according to a theme can provide alternative sources of return compared with traditional country, sector or factor investments. However, it remains challenging to screen thematic companies given the lack of standardized or classical financial metrics. Leveraging Big Data and NLP from RavenPack’s vast database of news articles, this presentation introduces QUEST - a practical method developed by J.P. Morgan of selecting thematic stocks.
The road from ESG intent to ESG achievements remains murky. What data should investors look for to analyze, monitor, and qualify companies; sustainability targets?
