Generating Alpha: Predicting Volatility and Corrections

Event Description

Michael A. Gayed, CFA, of Pension Partners, LLC co-authored two award-winning papers in 2014 that challenge the efficient market hypothesis by revealing market anomalies that have persisted over time. In separate papers, Mr. Gayed and his colleague, Charlie Bilello, CMT, focused on the utilities sector and Treasury bonds, providing a systematic way to outperform the market on an absolute and risk-adjusted basis. Importantly, they also show how the unique behavior of utilities and Treasuries can be used to anticipate periods of higher volatility and market corrections. Their work has important implications for Research Analysts, Mutual Fund Managers, Hedge Fund Strategists, Registered Investment Advisors, Institutional Management Consultants, and Private Wealth Managers.

Join Michael A. Gayed, CFA, co-author of these papers as he presents their research and provides practical ways of active tactical asset allocation using the signaling power of Utilities and Treasuries. 
Attendees will gain strategic insights into: 
  • Intermarket relationships that challenge the efficient market hypothesis
  • The unique signaling power of Utilities and Treasuries
  • Active portfolio management strategies to manage risk and generate alpha
All attendees will be entered into a contest to win a free Kindle and will also receive a complimentary copy of Michael E.S. Gayed's book, Intermarket Analysis and Investing  which has received 4.5 stars on Amazon!
