We were joined by Dr Antti Imanen, a renowned expert on financial investments, who has approached investing through a quantitative lens that focuses on long run data going back all the way back to the 1990s. He has a PhD in finance from the University of Chicago and has been recognised by the CFA Institute for extraordinary leadership and setting standards for excellence in investment management. During the event he spoke about his new book Investing Amid Low Expected Returns, which looks at the challenge of trying to make the most of return opportunities when markets offer the least. During his lecture he covered all the major asset classes, illiquidity premise, style premia and sources of alpha. His most recent book is a long-awaited follow-up to his first book, Expected Returns, published in 2011.
