Technical Analysis Concepts used in Dynamic Asset Allocation

In his presentation, Dr. Gregor Bauer will focus on Sector Rotation Strategies applied in Dynamic Asset Allocation Systems, which work well for active asset managers who have a medium to long term perspective.
Dr. Bauer shows, how well known fundamental approaches, like the „Low Risk-Anomaly-Phenomenon “, the „Dividend-Strategy“ or the „Momentum-Strategy“ already outperform Buy-and-Hold significantly.
But: Combining these effects with technical Trend-Following- Indicators will result in even higher outperformance. The presentation focuses on the Dynamic Allocation of the 19 Super-Sectors of the DJEuroStoxx 600 Index and sheds light on the combination of timing and risk-based strategies to improve the process of portfolio optimization.
Gregor Bauer will present various Allocation-Setups, giving precise Entry- and Exit Rules and a complete Performance-Evaluation of each strategy, thus proving how asset managers can improve performance results by employing these technical concepts.
Investors interested will be able to copy or adopt these strategies according to their needs, and will therefore immediately benefit from the presentation.
