We Are Adapting

Over the last three decades the exponential growth of sophisticated analytic tools, along with significant improvements in the accuracy and size of research databases, has led to tremendous advances in the fields of finance, econometrics, and statistics.  As a result, quantitative portfolio management strategies have become increasingly more effective for all asset classes.  When properly designed and implemented, they can provide more meaningful return, risk, and cost advantages than traditional subjective strategies.  Having gained popularity in recent years, the quantitative trend is expected to continue as investors recognize its disciplined approach can increase the probability of long-term success.  By reducing the investment equation to key time-tested variables, thereby eliminating the subjectivity of human nature, quantitative strategies function in a more optimal manner.

In today’s highly uncertain market environment, no single approach can guarantee future success.  Quantitative strategies help investors more effectively manage their return, risk, and expenses, and can help shift the probability of long-term success more greatly in their favor.

Singapore gasoline crack spreads now among the world’s lowest (8/14/2019)

Published on August 14, 2019

Asian refinery capacity expansions and increased throughput are affecting regional gasoline supply and crack spreads. Before 2015, gasoline crack spreads in Asia were frequently some of the world’s highest, reflecting low refinery capacity and high petroleum demand growth. However, since 2016, Asian gasoline crack spreads have fallen regularly to among the lowest globally. In China specifically, refinery investments and expansions have contributed to increasing gasoline yields and higher gasoline exports, up to 0.3 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2019 through June (Figure 1). These factors are contributing to downward pressure on gasoline prices and crack spreads in Singapore, the local market hub for petroleum products. In addition to ongoing Chinese refinery capacity expansions, increased petroleum product export quotas and slower transportation fuel demand growth within China are likely to result in continued increases in gasoline exports from China. …

Despite a long and sustained recovery from the Great Recession, a number of factors—including an aging population, slow productivity growth, and subdued inflation—continue to exert downward pressure on U.S. interest rates.

The housing bubble, the credit crunch, and the Great Recession: A reply to Paul Krugman

Published on September 21, 2018
