About The Session

This is the first webinar of our #10YearsOfQuantInsti series.

Mean reversion strategies have similar characteristics as short volatility strategies: they do well in calm and bullish markets, but suffer tail risks and can do very poorly during financial crises. In this session, Dr Chan will discuss how their fund QTS Capital Management benefited and suffered from trading a mean reversion strategy, and what they did to mitigate such tail risks.

Dr Ernest Chan is a globally renowned speaker on computerized trading. Dr Chan has conducted multiple educative sessions worldwide and has authored three books so far. His writings on Quantitative, Algorithmic and Machine Trading form primary literature for traders and aspiring quants.
