Given the unprecedented turmoil on financial markets in response to the coronavirus epidemic, we have updated the topic of this webinar to better reflect the current environment.
The focus of the webinar will be on the predictive power of sentiment as a universal risk indicator. Dr. Borovkova will show how sentiment indicators, constructed from Refinitiv Machine Readable News, are able to forecast distress at various scales of the investment process, ranging from exposure to global stock markets to sectors/industries, all the way to individual companies. She will also pay attention to factor investing and demonstrate how sentiment can serve as a risk-off indicator as well as independent factor in factor strategies.
