Do you think professional methods of investing are beyond your reach because it involves the state of the art infrastructure, rocket science, and a huge amount of money?
Have you tried replicating someone else's trading style and method only to end up with drastically different or inconsistent results?
Do you find it difficult to implement investment strategies that you learned because (a) you have no confidence about it, (b) you still don't know how to execute it, and/or (c) you have no time?
THIS COURSE WILL CHANGE YOUR PERCEPTION ABOUT THE APPROACH TO INVESTING.
We will teach you in-depth an all-weather investing approach known as Risk Parity, from concept to implementation, whose principles are used among hedge fund professionals. Ray Dalio, the founder of the largest hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, is the first to launch a fund based on Risk Parity principles.
This investing strategy is capable of creating robust portfolios that are much lower in risk. It remains resilient in harsh markets while yielding comparable or even higher returns than the broader stock market. After the course, you will be able to Do-It-Yourself.
Risk Parity is a powerful quantitative investing strategy that is grounded in well-established theory and common sense. There are no chart reading, no thick annual reports, no constant monitoring of market news, and no forecasting.
All investment decisions are driven by the model we will build in this course. The completed model requires less than 5 minutes of your time to update. With a good understanding of the strategy through hands-on learning, this will keep your discipline in check and prevent you from falling prey to emotions during times of market stress. The end result is consistency.
We will build the model up in Excel using inbuilt Excel functions. No programming experience is required. Neither do we need expensive tools or data subscriptions. We will use only free resources.
