STA Monthly Meeting & Summer Party – July 2011

Tuesday 12th July 2011
Risk Appetite, World Wealth and New Data

As well as research into new indicators, and collaboration with the quantative world, it is “new data” that is seen as the most exciting area for new research.

At Credit Suisse, technical analysts work closely with their colleagues in the strategy teams to create and analyse bespoke sets of data. The result of this has been to generate excellent signals to identify a variety of major turning points across assets, and shifts in macro themes.

As an example of “new” data, David Sneddon will focus in more detail on the Credit Suisse Risk Appetite series of indices – Global, Equity, Credit & US Fixed Income – how they are constructed, analysed and the subsequent “risk on” and “risk off” signals. He will also briefly look at World Wealth.
