Macro Matters

A macroeconomic approach to investing, with Fulcrum’s Chief Research Officer

As at 29 January, 2024.

Fulcrum’s Chief Research Officer Juan Antolin Diaz joins J.P. Morgan’s Market Matters Podcast series.  Juan discusses the macroeconomic and advanced econometric approach to investing at Fulcrum, including the integration of both quant and discretionary techniques.  He discusses the power of ‘Nowcasting’ to have a better understanding of the current economic backdrop, the benefits and challenges of dynamic asset allocation, the role of data in the investment process and how this has evolved over time, where AI techniques are proving beneficial, where academic research and rigour are additive to the investment process, and conclusions on market dynamics today.  Juan is in discussion with Eloise Goulder, Head of the Data Assets & Alpha Group.
