  • Stress Testing in Practice
    Stress Testing in Practice
    Christoph V. Schon, Executive Director of Applied Research Recorded: Mar 18 2019 57 mins
    A good stress test needs two ingredients. First, one needs to decide which variable(s) to stress and by how much. Second, comes the identification of a suitable calibration period for the covariance matrix used to estimate the other pricing factors. The latter can often be the more difficult, in particular if one does not want to simply rely on recent correlations to hold. In this webinar, Christoph V. Schon, Executive Director of Applied Research, will talk about the challenges he and his colleagues face (e.g. looking for relevant precedents or dealing with a lack of historical data) and how they deal with them, drawing from a number of recent studies conducted by the team.

    * Understand and size your selections
    * Deepen your conviction in your portfolio
    * Explain your performance
    * Generate higher alpha

    Viewers will gain an understanding of a practical approach to portfolio construction that can augment a fundamental investment process and help generate better risk-adjusted returns.
  • A Survey of ESG Vendor Data: Strategies for Managing Score Differences
    A Survey of ESG Vendor Data: Strategies for Managing Score Differences
    Anthony Renshaw, Ph.D., Director of Index Solutions Recorded: Feb 25 2019 46 mins
    Environmental, social and governance (ESG) data availability, marketing presence and regulation continue to increase in the investment community. Recent articles have highlighted several remarkable instances of score divergence between data vendors. Those articles did not attempt to determine whether the disparities represented isolated outliers or were a common occurrence in ESG data.

    Using a small set of different ESG vendors, Anthony Renshaw, Ph.D., Director of Index Solutions at Axioma, examined how pervasive ESG disparities are and what drives material differences in vendor scores. He also evaluated how those disparities impact portfolio construction.

    Axioma Insight™ Quarterly Multi-Asset Risk Review
    Christoph V. Schon, Executive Director of Applied Research Recorded: Feb 15 2019 54 mins
    The last quarter of 2018 saw profound changes in the risk environment and multi-asset class correlations. While in early October, markets were still concerned about high inflation caused by strong labor conditions market and wage growth, traders have since dramatically lowered their interest rate expectations, fueled by ‘dovish’ Fed comments. In this webinar, Christoph V. Schon, Axioma's Executive Director of Applied Research, examined how portfolio risk has changed from very little diversification in a climate of inflation fears to a ‘flight-to-quality’ environment entirely dominated by stock market volatility.
