We have received multiple requests from interested individuals to have a brief idea or a demo lecture to get a feeler of a typical EPAT lecture. Though one lecture might not give you the exact indication of the entire comprehensive curriculum and the 6-month long duration, it surely opens up a window to explore a representative session.

Questions this session would cater to

  • What is the journey of the strategy?
  • How to optimize a strategy for better returns?
  • How to create safer strategies?
  • A hint of what would be covered in EPAT®

Session Outline

  • Conceptualizing the strategy
  • Creating the strategy model
  • Taking it to a platform to backtest
  • Strategy optimization
  • Execution in a simulated environment
