Stress Test Assessment of Hedge Funds, ETFs and Mutual Funds
A special event webinar dedicated to the ABC Quant's proprietary stress test risk assessment framework. ABC Quant has developed the first in the industry stress test database (STDB) covering over 600,000 instruments, which include hedge funds, ETFs, mutual funds and CTAs. The STDB contains assets expected performance during simulated historical extreme events, e.g., the Credit Crunch 2008, Bear Stearns collapse, the Greek Crisis 2010 and so on. The STDN is being updated monthly and allows investors screening assets with defined stress test profiles. The new approach to asset screening greatly improves a traditional investment process and saves time on risk analysis: instead of performing stress tests on pre-selected assets investors can filter assets with desirable stress test profiles.
This tutorial explains the methodology of the Macroeconomic Scenario Screening™ and Trend Segmentation™ models and their implementation in practice, from the hedge fund investor's standpoint..
