by Al Naqvi, Artificial Intelligence For Asset Management And Investment Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Artificial Intelligence For Asset Management And Investment books, Make AI technology the backbone of your organization to compete in the Fintech era The rise of artificial intelligence is nothing short of a technological revolution. AI is poised to completely transform asset management and investment banking, yet its current application within the financial sector is limited and fragmented. Existing AI implementations tend to solve very narrow business issues, rather than serving as a powerful tech framework for next-generation finance. Artificial Intelligence for Asset Management and Investment provides a strategic viewpoint on how AI can be comprehensively integrated within investment finance, leading to evolved performance in compliance, management, customer service, and beyond. No other book on the market takes such a wide-ranging approach to using AI in asset management. With this guide, you’ll be able to build an asset management firm from the ground up—or revolutionize your existing firm—using artificial intelligence as the cornerstone and foundation. This is a must, because AI is quickly growing to be the single competitive factor for financial firms. With better AI comes better results. If you aren’t integrating AI in the strategic DNA of your firm, you’re at risk of being left behind. See how artificial intelligence can form the cornerstone of an integrated, strategic asset management framework Learn how to build AI into your organization to remain competitive in the world of Fintech Go beyond siloed AI implementations to reap even greater benefits Understand and overcome the governance and leadership challenges inherent in AI strategy Until now, it has been prohibitively difficult to map the high-tech world of AI onto complex and ever-changing financial markets. Artificial Intelligence for Asset Management and Investment makes this difficulty a thing of the past, providing you with a professional and accessible framework for setting up and running artificial intelligence in your financial operations.

by Salem Tamer, Ethisches Investment Ein Performance Vergleich Auf Basis Des Dax Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ethisches Investment Ein Performance Vergleich Auf Basis Des Dax books, Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: In der derzeitigen von Baisse, Unternehmensskandalen und politischen Unsicherheiten bestimmten Zeit ist es für jeden Investor schwer, eine gute Anlage zu finden. Diese negative Entwicklung, die immerhin mehr als zwei Jahre an Kursverlusten an den größten internationalen Börsen mit sich gebracht hat, hat viele Investoren zu einem Umdenken gebracht. Man orientiert sich bei der Geldanlage nicht mehr primär an der Rendite, sondern zunehmend an neuen Werten, wie beispielsweise der Ethik. Investoren in den reichen Industriestaaten versuchen ihr Geld auf eine Art und Weise anzulegen, um der Gesellschaft im allgemeinen einen positiven Nutzen zu bringen. Dieser positive Effekt wiederspiegelt sich vor allem in der Unterstützung von Unternehmen, die entweder ökologisch einwandfrei arbeiten oder sozial verantwortungsbewusst agieren. Verschiedenen Studien zufolge sind maximal ein Drittel der ethischen Investoren echte Hardliner, die nur aus Prinzip in ethische Unternehmen anlegen. Der Rest setzt sich aus Investoren, die ethische Anlagemöglichkeiten zur Portfoliobeimischung verwenden, und institutionellen Anlegern zusammen. Zu letzteren gehören neben sozialen Organisationen und der Kirche auch Vermögensverwalter, die in vielen europäischen Staaten ihre Produkte zur privaten Altersvorsorge nach ethisch-ökologischen Kriterien deklarieren müssen. Ethisches Investment ist also ein moderner Begriff, der noch stark an Bedeutung gewinnen und auf die Kapitalmärkte wichtigen Einfluss nehmen wird. Deshalb habe ich mich dazu entschlossen, diesem Thema in Form einer Diplomarbeit näher anzunehmen. Das Ziel der Arbeit ist, die Sinnhaftigkeit von ethischem Investment anhand einer Performanceuntersuchung darzustellen. Es soll untersucht werden, ob ein ethisch agierender Investor für seine sozialen Bemühungen ausreichend in Form der Rendite belohnt wird oder mit einem Renditeverzicht im Vergleich zu einem herkömmlichen Investor rechnen muss. Dazu wird zuerst eine Definition des Begriffs abgegeben und diese mit den traditionellen Kapitalmarkttheorien verglichen. Zu diesen gehören neben klassischem Anlagedreieck und der modernen Erweiterung in Form des Anlagevierecks unter Berücksichtigung von Ethik, vor allem Markowitz Portfolio Theorie, Tobin Modell, Capital Asset Pricing Model sowie Arbitrage Pricing Theory. Den Abschluss dieses theoretischen Kapitels macht eine detailliert beschriebener Artikel, der sich mit den Auswirkungen von ethischem [...]
by Claude Gelès, Managing Science Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Managing Science books, A unique "how-to" manual for the management of scientific laboratories This book presents a complete set of tools for the management of research and development laboratories and projects. With an emphasis on knowledge rather than profit as a measure of output and performance, the authors apply standard management principles and techniques to the needs of high-flux, open-ended, separately funded science and technology enterprises. They also propose the novel idea that failure, and incipient failure, is an important measure of an organization's potential. From the management of complex, round-the-clock, high-tech operations to strategies for long-term planning, Managing Science: Management for R&D Laboratories discusses how to build projects with the proper research and development, obtain and account for funding, and deal with rapidly changing technologies, facilities, and trends. The entire second part of the book is devoted to personnel issues and the impact of workplace behavior on the various functions of a knowledge-based organization. Drawing on four decades of involvement with the management of scientific laboratories, the authors thoroughly illustrate their philosophy with real-world examples from the physics field and provide tables and charts. Managers of scientific laboratories as well as scientists and engineers expecting to move into management will find Managing Science: Management for R&D Laboratories an invaluable practical guide.

by Norton Reamer, Investment A History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Investment A History books, Investing—the commitment of resources to achieve a return—affects individuals, families, companies, and nations, and has done so throughout history. Yet until the sixteenth century, investing was a privilege of only the elite classes. The story behind the democratization of investing is bound up with some of history's most epic events. It is also a tale rich with lessons for professional and everyday investors who hope to make wiser choices. This entertaining history doubles as a sophisticated account of the opportunities and challenges facing the modern investor. It follows the rise of funded retirement; the evolution of investment vehicles and techniques; investment misdeeds and regulatory reform; government economic policy; the development of investment theory; and the emergence of new investment structures. Norton Reamer and Jesse Downing map these trends and profile the battle between low cost index and exchange-traded funds, on the one hand, and the higher-fee hedge funds and private equity, on the other. By helping us understand this history and its legacy of risk, Reamer and Downing hope to better educate readers about the individual and societal impact of investing and ultimately level the playing field.

WCSS is a biennial event, jointly organized by three scientific communities in computational social science, namely, the Pacific-Asian Association for Agent-Based Approach in Social Systems Sciences (PAAA), the European Social Simulation Association (ESSA), and the Computational Social Science Society of the Americas (CSSSA). It is, therefore, currently the most prominent conference in the area of agent-based social simulation. The papers selected for this volume give a holistic view of the current development of social simulation, indicating the directions for future research and creating an important archival document and milestone in the history of computational social science. Specifically, the papers included here cover substantial progress in artificial financial markets, macroeconomic forecasting, supply chain management, bank networks, social networks, urban planning, social norms and group formation, cross-cultural studies, political party competition, voting behavior, computational demography, computational anthropology, evolution of languages, public health and epidemics, AIDS, security and terrorism, methodological and epistemological issues, empirical-based agent-based modeling, modeling of experimental social science, gaming simulation, cognitive agents, and participatory simulation. Furthermore, pioneering studies in some new research areas, such as the theoretical foundations of social simulation and categorical social science, also are included in the volume.
by Hong Fan, The Irish Asia Strategy And Its China Relations Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Irish Asia Strategy And Its China Relations books, Asian studies – as basically all efforts to engage in inter-culturally – is caught in producing and reproducing prejudices on the one hand and denying differences and specificities on the other. In particular in academic studies and teaching the challenge is to overcome this apparent dichotomy and the task is to establish understanding without prejudice of what Asia really was and is. The extensive range of topics and views in this volume challenge a mode of globalisation that simply overthrows national traditions by a Darwinian-kind of rule of the survival of the strongest, the fittest will actually be the one who is well capable to manage difference by understanding them in a historical context and acknowledge them as part of something new that is emerging in front of our eyes. This book will stimulate further research and debate within and without the boundaries of Asian Studies.

by Leo Haviland, Word On The Treet Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Word On The Treet books, "Words on the Street" is an experienced insider's analysis of Wall Street language. This informative and entertaining exploration of marketplace rhetoric focuses on metaphors derived from the fascinating arenas of games, love, war, politics, religion, the fine arts, and natural physical science. This expose reviews that wordplay in the context of the American Dream. Armies of books describe marketplace structure and instruments, recount economic history, or unveil personalities and strategies of heroic (or scandalous) individuals and institutions. "Words on the Street" is different. It enlightens Wall Street professionals, Main Street audiences, policy makers, and academics regarding Wall Street talk and its implications. Wall Street and American Dream rhetoric reflect and shape marketplace perspectives and thereby influence quests to make, keep, and manage money. Therefore Wall Street propaganda has major financial consequences for both Wall Street insiders and Main Street. "Words" may change marketplace viewpoints, including dogmas related to investment. This cultural investigation shows how investors and other players are persuaded to venture into and stay within stock, interest rate, currency, and commodity arenas. The opportunity to make money is a very incomplete explanation. The book is extensively documented from financial sources and via references to literature, film, and music. This study of Wall Street's language and rhetorical methods benefits Wall Street professionals, Main Street residents, businesses, politicians, and regulators seeking insight on how and why Wall Street sermons attract and convince them. Enticed by the oratory of Wall Street and its allies, many millions of Main Street dwellers around the globe have marched into and remained within Wall Street, often to "invest." The recent worldwide economic crisis underlines the importance of Wall Street marketplaces, even for those who have not carried their own money directly to Wall Street tables. "Words on the Street" demolishes the scientific ambitions and claims, not only of Wall Street, but also of economics and other social "sciences." "Words" investigates and discredits the counterfeit science (alleged objectivity) of the influential armies of would-be Newtons, Einsteins, Darwins, and Fords roaming throughout Wall Street and economics. Its analysis of Wall Street language in the context of the American Dream will fascinate American history scholars and students. Finally, "Words" provides an innovative yet persuasive explanation of cultural reasoning and how it differs from scientific rationality. Leo Haviland has three decades of experience in the Wall Street trading environment. Leo has worked for Goldman Sachs, Sempra Energy Trading, and other institutions. In his research and sales career in stock, interest rate, foreign exchange, and commodity battlefields, he has dealt with numerous and diverse financial institutions and individuals. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago (Phi Beta Kappa) and the Cornell Law School.
by Edward O Thorp, The Kelly Capital Growth Investment Criterion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Kelly Capital Growth Investment Criterion books, This volume provides the definitive treatment of fortune's formula or the Kelly capital growth criterion as it is often called. The strategy is to maximize long run wealth of the investor by maximizing the period by period expected utility of wealth with a logarithmic utility function. Mathematical theorems show that only the log utility function maximizes asymptotic long run wealth and minimizes the expected time to arbitrary large goals. In general, the strategy is risky in the short term but as the number of bets increase, the Kelly bettor's wealth tends to be much larger than those with essentially different strategies. So most of the time, the Kelly bettor will have much more wealth than these other bettors but the Kelly strategy can lead to considerable losses a small percent of the time. There are ways to reduce this risk at the cost of lower expected final wealth using fractional Kelly strategies that blend the Kelly suggested wager with cash. The various classic reprinted papers and the new ones written specifically for this volume cover various aspects of the theory and practice of dynamic investing. Good and bad properties are discussed, as are fixed-mix and volatility induced growth strategies. The relationships with utility theory and the use of these ideas by great investors are featured.Contents: "The Early Ideas and Contributions: "Introduction to the Early Ideas and ContributionsExposition of a New Theory on the Measurement of Risk (translated by Louise Sommer) "(D Bernoulli)"A New Interpretation of Information Rate "(J R Kelly, Jr)"Criteria for Choice among Risky Ventures "(H A Latan)"Optimal Gambling Systems for Favorable Games "(L Breiman)"Optimal Gambling Systems for Favorable Games "(E O Thorp)"Portfolio Choice and the Kelly Criterion "(E O Thorp)"Optimal Investment and Consumption Strategies under Risk for a Class of Utility Functions "(N H Hakansson)"On Optimal Myopic Portfolio Policies, with and without Serial Correlation of Yields "(N H Hakansson)"Evidence on the ?Growth-Optimum-Model?
