Nick Baltas (Goldman Sachs) - EDHEC Speaker Series
Nick Baltas, Managing director de Goldman Sachs will give a talk on "Institutional Trends in Systematic Investing".
Over the recent decade, the space of systematic investing has evolved substantially. In the earlier days of its broader adoption from institutional investors it served the purpose of a liquid, uncorrelated/diversifying stream of returns to overlay on top of strategic asset allocation portfolios. Following some challenging periods, namely 2018 and 2020, the investor focus shifted towards looking for investment solutions that would solve for specific investor objectives/economic outcomes, such as looking for equity-defensive solutions, income-generating solutions, more recently inflation-defensive solutions and so on. In that journey systematic investment strategies have been one scalable and versatile tool in the hands of large institutional investors. Nick Baltas will explore current markets trends and potential investment ideas.
