Investment Wisdom for the Digital Age


AI and BIG Data: Investment Management in the Digital Age


In a world where machines can process vast amounts of data in an unbiased manner, what will an investing edge look like for institutional investors in the digital age? What makes investment skills valuable in the face of unprecedented technological advances?

What’s clear is that successful investing will require more than just looking at AI and data science in isolation, as the potential for noise from available data sources is overwhelming.

 


A Word from the Author


We have vast amounts of data at our fingertips in an unbiased manner. But, what will an investing edge look like for institutional investors in the digital age? What makes investment skills valuable in the face of unprecedented technological advances?

While it seems we’re on the cusp of seeing investment breakthroughs, access to the latest data and technology will not guarantee investors the returns of tomorrow.

Investment Wisdom for the Digital Age is an update from my 2007 book, ‘2020 Vision – Investment Wisdom for Tomorrow’. The book investigates whether investing will be an art, science or skill, through conversations with 14 of the world’s leading industry and academic experts, including acclaimed investor and founder of Bridgewater Associates Ray Dalio, Head of Asset Allocation at GMO Ben Inker, as well as other leading practitioners and academics.
