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.

Con Edison limits natural gas service due to pipeline constraints into New York City area

Published on May 22, 2019

In January 2019, Consolidated Edison, Inc., (Con Edison)—the largest utility provider in the New York City area, serving 10 million customers—announced a moratorium on new natural gas connections in most of Westchester County, effective March 16. Demand for natural gas in the New York City area has increased in recent years, leading to concerns about reliability of service. Con Edison claimed it cannot guarantee uninterrupted service to new natural gas connections. Between the announcement of the moratorium and its start on March 16, Con Edison received 1,600 applications for firm natural gas service in the moratorium area. Customers on firm natural gas service contracts have delivery priority above those on interruptible contracts.

Venezuelan crude oil production falls to lowest level since January 2003

Published on May 20, 2019

This average is the lowest level since January 2003, when a nationwide strike and civil unrest largely brought the operations of Venezuela’s state oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PdVSA), to a halt. Widespread power outages, mismanagement of the country’s oil industry, and U.S. sanctions directed at Venezuela’s energy sector and PdVSA have all contributed to the recent declines.

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