Data and investment decision-making in aftermath of Corona
June 24, 11am AEST
Economic forecasts predict headwinds in varying degrees of severity in the aftermath of the Corona pandemic. What is not yet clear is the real impact on the economy and different company results. This in turn is impacting the reliability of traditional information sources that would typically guide investment decisions and strategy calls.
This session will discuss some of the key challenges complicating investment decision-making in current market conditions, and how investment managers are using data for investment decision-making. It will also consider alternative data sources that could prove useful in seeking alpha through heightened economic uncertainty.
