Chia, David

Virtually every professional funds management business promotes itself on the basis of having a proprietary process for screening, identifying, segregating and analysing the seemingly boundless pools of financial data. How each one goes about it is perhaps not as vital as the fact that they all apply a certain degree of rigour and discipline to the analytics. In the realm of the private investor and trader, the process is often more relaxed and may be lacking in consistency and structure. In this presentation, David will share with you his experience in running a money management business and some of the more important due processes involved, the benefits of a structured approach and also some of the drawbacks.

Trading is not unlike many other sporting or professional pursuits and endeavors we take on in life, in that a great deal of time is spent in actual doing. I consider it vital that time is set aside to assess how effective one has been and whether there are bits of the process you would amend or discard or even emphasize all the more.

To that end, I wish to share with you the huge impact technology has had in terms of how and where I trade, in narrowing down the best opportunities from amongst the noise of the market.

David has prepared an abstracto of many of the major presentations at the 2012 IFTA Conference in Singapore.

The opportunity to look over not just your equity curve but your process and yourself, how well you implemented, what lessons were learnt ? these are all necessary stepping stones to ensure a more enjoyable and profitable engagement for the year ahead.

I would like to share with you some of the key revelations I had in running a global unconstrained long-only equity mandate. Regardless of what or how you trade, perhaps you may gleam from my trials and tribulations, some gems to take away for yourself.
