A two-day workshop designed to provide a practical introduction to systematic trading for traders, computer science professionals, risk managers and senior executives.
Systematic or quantitative trading has existed for decades, but in the last couple of years there has been renewed interest from investors, hedge funds and traders. This workshop provides general insights into systematic trading as well as going into detail on the components required to build a systematic trading business.
We discuss the trends in systematic trading. We take you through the development of a research and backtesting environment. We then discuss approaches to the identification and scientific backtesting of trading strategies, including signal generation, position sizing and portfolio construction. Specific topics include:
Key Note Speaker - 'Trends in hedge funds and systematic trading'

Building your research environment
Systematic strategy design and backtesting
How machine learning is changing trading
