AlphaQ - June 2016

June’s AlphaQ gives us a cover story on the original robo-advisers – the systems and algorithms that dictate the trading in trend following systems. James Williams interviews the key players in the sector and finds out whether machines can beat the markets. 

Elsewhere in our hunt to bring you new sources of alpha, we have two types of emerging debt, with Roy Scheepe, Senior Client Portfolio Manager, Emerging Market Debt, NN IP’s Emerging Market Debt Hard Currency strategies detailing the sector’s volatile ride, while Golding Capital Partners’ Oliver Huber discusses Europe’s ‘emerging’ private debt market with James Williams.

More alpha emerges from RMB Westport’s sub-Saharan real estate fund, while WallachBeth Capital’s Mohit Bajaj writes that short-selling can be a more effective alternative to using inverse ETFs for expressing a bearish opinion.

Finally, our regular columnist, Randeep Grewal introduces the Scratchybeards of Cambridge, soon to have their own reality TV series once they make it out of Middle Earth. Read Randeep’s column which brings a whole new perspective to understanding long term interest rates.
