Robert discusses the benefits of using machine learning to forecast equity beta. In addition to common fundamental variables and historical beta he also incorporates equity sentiment data into the set of predictor variables. Watch the highlights below, you can request access to slides and the full video.
Many recent machine learning studies related to equity portfolio management focus on forecasting expected returns despite the relatively small signal to noise ratio in such exercises. Forecasting risk such as stock beta is important in many practical applications.

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.
