ABSTRACT

Data. Driven. Development

As active asset manager, NN Investment Partners approaches markets as a complex adaptive system that does not always behaves rationally and does not always efficiently converge back to an “optimal” equilibrium. This stems out of all human behavioural biases which influence broader group behaviour under certain conditions. To better manage uncertainty and to exploit all opportunities created by behavioural biases, we use “big data” analytics from Marketpsych to profile investors’ emotions. Extensive research has proved that this approach is adding value to our decision making process in asset allocation. The presentation wishes to demonstrate the effectiveness of this innovative approach.
