Asia Alpha Strategies: A Systematic vs. Fundamental Perspective

A CAIA San Francisco Event

The Asian region has been an economic hotbed of innovation and opportunity for thousands of years. Today, these opportunities are ever more prescient and elusive as China opens its doors to the developed world’s capital market system.

In Partnership with BlackRock’s Women’s Initiative Network and in celebration of International Women’s Day, CAIA San Francisco invites you to join us for an interactive debate on Asia focused alpha strategies. We will hear from a panel of amazing women who have built incredible track records at two of the most well-respected Asia focused Fund providers in the business. 

Themes we will be discussing:

  • Dynamics of the China A, and Asia region market trading and liquidity.
  • Fundamental strategies in China A, and the Asia Region.
  • Systematic strategies in China A, and the Asia Region. 
  • Alpha creation across each strategy.
  • The changing future of investing in Asia region.
