CQAsia's "Thoughtful Market Practitioner" Series
18:30-20:00 on March 10th in Central
We all know that analyst forecasts (both buy-side and sell-side) are, to put it politely, imperfect. While many people discuss the problems, a few are working
to address them, and one of these is Peter Joos.
Peter Joos is an academic at INSEAD, but he took eight years off from his academic pursuits to work
in Morgan Stanley’s equity research department as their Global Head of Valuation and Accounting. While there he helped develop
and implement their scenario analysis approach
to forecasting that looks not just at single discrete
estimates of expected returns but also forecasts of fundamental risk. Since heading back to his off-white high-rise he has looked at this approach to measure
how well analysts understand and communicate fundamental firm risk.
This is actually Peter’s second stint at
INSEAD as he worked there early in his career, as well as teaching at U of Chicago and
MIT, all armed with multiple graduate degrees from Stanford in statistics and business. He also serves as an
of the Capital Markets Advisory Committee that advises the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). Despite this he has a personality and is an interesting speaker.
Come hear Peter speak about some of his latest research and unpublished findings at the CQAsia Evening Markets Chat. This session should be of particular
interest to CIOs, Heads of Research, senior PMs, anyone using analyst forecasts in their investment process - whether from a fundamental or quantitative perspective, anyone interested in risk, and of course anyone whose investment work and approach
to life causes them to look upon the word ‘QUANT’
with interest and not fear.
RSVPs are strictly required.
Seating is limited, and seats will be allotted on a
first-come, first-served basis.
This is an evening event beginning at 18:30. Light refreshments will be served.
