In continuation with our EPATian project webinars depicting the applications of quantitative and algorithmic trading concepts in real-world markets scenarios, this webinar will cover an interesting project presentation on “Machine Learning Based Optimal Portfolio Allocation” by Vivin Thomas.
About the Presentation
Machine Learning Based Optimal Portfolio Allocation
Focus on algorithms that leverage machine learning at its core to make the capital allocation choice. Come up with a low-frequency strategy that can optimally allocate its prevailing capital amongst a pre-selected set of underliers (basket assets) at regular intervals. And with this process, create Long-only, low frequency, asset-allocation algorithms. Benchmark these against a vanilla allocation strategy which only depends on empirical momentum indicators for its decision making.
