Lunchtime Presentation | Long Horizon Investment Dynamics: Theory and Empirical evidence

The phenomenon that forecast power for future returns increases with the time horizon is well established in the academic literature since the 1980’s.  Curiously, this dynamic has not found its way into mainstream asset management. We discuss both why this exists theoretically, how to test for it empirically, and then leap beyond the literature by operationalising it.  The result is a unique investment process.

When: Thursday, 29 October 2015

Time: 12.30 – 2pm (a light lunch will be provided)
