Wednesday webinar at one: Does skill exist and what would it look like?

Wednesday 29 June 2022 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

Investment skill is the raison d’être of the asset management industry, managers sell it and clients pay for it. In spite of this, empirical evidence of its existence, and what it looks like in practice, is sparse; in fact there is a mountain of words, papers and opinions arguing that it’s as likely to be spotted as the extinct dodo.

In this session, Rick Di Mascio, Chief Executive Officer of Inalytics seeks to fill that gap: using the Inalytics’ database to show that there are skilful managers who generate alpha in excess of fees, and more importantly the specific elements of the investment process that generate that alpha.

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
