Andreas Clenow is a Chief Investment Officer located in Zurich, Switzerland, overseeing many investment strategies over a nine-figure asset base. In today’s interview, we focus mostly on his work within a quant hedge fund. We are covering many trading topics, including trend following strategies and equity momentum strategies. You can also find out why trading own money is not always the best option to do.
Andreas is an author of international bestsellers titled Following the Trend and Stocks on the Move. These books present a quantitative approach to modelling the markets with extensive backtest results. You can also learn from the practitioner how hedge fund business looks from the inside.
No worries if math or statistics is your Achilles’ heel. As Andreas says, scientific papers often are unnecessarily obfuscating the knowledge so that it’s not easily accessible to everyone. He proves it doesn’t have to be the case, explaining complex things, as we could think, in an easy way.
