Rediscovering wealth management with reinforcement learning

Tuesday 18 April 2023 | 17:00 - 18:00 | Webinar

This event has been organised by the Data Science Working Group

Reinforcement learning (RL) is becoming more relevant and ubiquitous in the investment industry, yet its many applications remain obscure to a large majority of finance practitioners.

Join this webinar where our speaker Matthew Dixon, RISK’s Quant of the Year 2022, will introduce RL to finance practitioners with an intuitive but rigorous approach, while covering recent applications to investments with special focus on applying RL to goal-based wealth management.

In this webinar you will:

  • Learn the main building blocks of RL
  • Explore some of the applications of RL within the investment industry
  • Discover a specific case of RL applied to goal-based wealth management problems e.g., retirement plans or target dated funds.
