Protecting their portfolios from risk and drawdowns is a priority for investment managers. Today, however, given the massive uncertainty facing global capital markets, hedging risk is the priority one for any manager looking to escape the year unscathed.
The problem with most hedge baskets as they exist today is that they are either based on broad indexes, so they are not alpha generative, or are outsourced, so multiple asset manager clients may end up with similar baskets. This puts portfolio managers at a distinct disadvantage over those that are able to create data-driven, intelligent, customized hedge baskets.
Boosted Insight’s Hedge Baskets enables asset managers to generate hedges distinct to their portfolio - Hedge Baskets uses AI to create unique, data-driven, smart hedges, giving investment managers total control and visibility over the process.
To further improve our clients’ hedging capabilities, we have paired with S3 Partners. S3 data and predictive analytics provide access to high-quality, real-time market sentiment, including financing rates (bid/ask/last), short interest, and float data. In addition, S3’s proprietary Squeeze Risk and Crowded scores are signals for identifying stocks with outsized volatility, helping investors find value, fix their positioning, and avoid risk. Our analysis revealed that integrating alternative data boosts the performance of machine learning models.
In this joint webinar with S3 Partners, we will discuss how investment managers can seize on the power of data-driven AI and alternative data to control their portfolio risks.
You will learn:
● Why standard hedge baskets don’t help most investment managers
● How creating your own data-driven smart hedges improves portfolio results
● How pairing AI with alternative data (like S3 Partners’) boosts the performance of ML models
