Unleash the Potential of Generative AI in Asset Management: Discover, Learn, and Apply!

The recorded content from our enlightening 2-day workshop held from September 30 to October 1, 2023, is now available for purchase. Hosted by industry stalwarts Dr. Ernest Chan, Dr. Roger Hunter, Dr. Hamlet Medina, and featuring an insightful keynote by Dr. Lisa Huang, this workshop meticulously explores the deployment of Large Language Models (LLMs) in asset management, particularly focusing on crafting robust discretionary trading strategies.

Learning Goals

  • A thorough understanding of Generative AI fundamentals and advanced techniques, tailor-made for asset management applications.
  • Practical acumen to design, evaluate, and deploy LLMs for innovative trading strategies.
  • An in-depth exploration of prompt engineering and risk mitigation strategies associated with LLMs.
  • Strategies to enhance trading methodologies with sentiment analysis employing LLMs.

Generative AI for Asset Managers is a 2-day online workshop to demonstrate how we construct a discretionary trading strategy using a LLM. We will demonstrate how asset managers and traders can use Google’s BARD to turn unstructured data such as the audio feed of the Federal Reserve’s Chair’s speech into high frequency trading signals and backtest such strategies, all at minimal cost. Participants can explore and experiment with variations and improvements on the basic code, as well as other use cases of LLM for asset management.

Workshop Speakers

This workshop is hosted by Dr. Ernest Chan, Founder and CEO of, Dr. Roger Hunter, Chief Technology Officer at QTS Capital Management, and Dr. Hamlet Medina, Chief Data Scientist at Criteo. We are honoured to be joined by Dr. Lisa Huang, Head of AI Investment Management at Fidelity Investments who will present as a keynote speaker.
