Buy Side versus the Sell Side: Traders at Hedge Funds & Banks. David Morrison comments. PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can bring you more! Systematic versus Discretionary Traders Some common misconceptions about traders. Discuss each of the following: - Buy side versus sell side: traders at a hedge fund or prop firm taking on risk to maximize reward versus traders at an investment back that are trying to maximize flow by matching bids and offers. - Systematic versus discretionary: traders who write computer code for strategies that can be backtested versus traders who research particular theses to trade on that are not based on a model or cannot be backtested (or use their intuition). This is talking about institutions and the professional trades; knowing what they're up to is good for ...
What is a Quant? Quant is a short form for Quantitative or Quantitative Analyst. Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and trader comments. PLEASE HELP US BY LIKING THIS VIDEO IF YOU FOUND IT USEFUL. We understand what an analyst is; he analyses something and quantitative is very numerical. So in the investment industry you have someone called the research analyst. This is the person who gets the annual reports from companies and he researches them in his capacity as an analyst and produces a report for clients to indicate whether that company would make a good or bad investment. A Quantitative Analyst will just look at the numbers.

What do hedge funds think of technical analysis? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. Do you need to be good at maths to make money trading? Why aren't economists wealthy / successful investors? Or are they? Some of them love it and some of them hate it. It also depends what you mean by technical analysis. If technical analysis means optically looking at charts and looking for patterns like head and shoulders..etc it becomes very difficult to test. If something cannot be written down in a set of rules, then it is not useful. Others will argue that technical analysis is more of an art than a science. Knowing maths doesn't necessarily make you smart.

What is the daily life of a hedge fund manager like? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. It depends on the kind of trading you do. For systematic trading (and that means fully automated machines) it was ensuring that the machines were executing the orders they were supposed to execute. Then it was about finding time to improve the system, client meetings, filling due diligence forms and then meetings with lawyers and administrators. At the end its a job! What would be your advice for someone who is looking to break into the hedge fund world?
Do hedge funds use technical analysis? Zak Mir, technical analyst responds. Hedge funds are very secretive organisations and they don't really want you to know what they are doing. I reckon that they are significantly technically based and they would have systems that they would have paid millions of pounds to programmers to designs. This highlights the eternal battled between fundamental investors like Warren Buffett and everybody else. You don't tend to hear so much about the successful traders.
AUM is the lifeblood of the investment management business and competition for assets is fierce. To grow AUM can be the single most difficult aspect of running a hedge fund business. Most small hedge funds are operated by former portfolio managers, traders or research analysts, who know how to manage money and trade for profit. A true test will be diverting enough time towards marketing activities without sacrificing any investment performance. Raising capital should be a non-stop, full-time process, which requires devoting patience, time and commitment into crafting comprehensive marketing strategies. All too often we see managers feverishly scrambling to get their initial investors in and once they start investing, the capital raising efforts come to a grinding halt. Your time is valu...
