Topic: "Quantitative Investing: Turning the Odds of Success"
Speaker: Vittorio Manente, Chief Executive Manager, Alpha Growth Capital LLC
Quantitative investing enables to turn the odds of success into the investor favor while eliminating any emotional bias associated with the process of investing. Statistical analysis of the price action enables to find patterns. These patterns can be then used to define: entry and exit points and position size. The approach allows generating positive returns independently of the market direction. In this presentation, Alpha Growth Capital will review why quant investing might have a hedge vs. strategic market bets, the statistical-based approach used for its core strategy NEXT-alpha and the pros’ and con’s associated with more sophisticated methods like machine and deep learning.
Bio: Not satisfied by the performances of financial products available for retail investors, Vittorio decided to create his own.

In 2019 Vittorio started Alpha Growth Capital, with the idea of providing small and larger investors access to this strategy and enabling them to generate additional sources of income while they deal with their daily duties.
