STA Monthly Meeting February 2008
Living in a fast paced world filled with a myriad of investment opportunities buried beneath a sea of market noise, news, data and other perilous distractions, getting to the pearls can be a real challenge. Relying on your brain to digest and process large amounts of information in a limited amount of time comes at its own perils, owing to cognitive impediments that make us vulnerable to information overload.
Revealing some of the biases exhibited by investors, Rashpal will explain the benefits of simple quantitative techniques in arriving at the answer, and go as far as revealing one simple, backtested system that is born out of the concept of trends.
Rashpal graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science with a first class degree in Actuarial Science. He has been working as an asset allocation analyst at Rathbone Brothers, formerly assistant to Robin Griffiths (before his retirement in December 2007) and specialises in the use of quantitative techniques in the analysis of global markets with particular emphasis on building models for system trading and investment purposes.
