My guest today is Rob Arnott, an entrepreneur, author, investor, and writer. He serves as Chairman and CEO of Research Affiliates LLC. advising on over $160 billion dollars in institutional investment assets. Rob is one of the worlds preeminent voices on investment strategy. Rob has been with quantitative investing since it’s inception in the 70’s. With the rise in computer capabilities, quant traders were able to start to make a name for themselves in the trading community.

The topic is quantitative investing.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • An addiction to complexity
  • Fundamental indexing
  • Momentum trading
  • How to use valuation
  • Benchmarks
  • Diversification
  • Modern finance
  • Weighting your portfolio

“I think the quant community has a lot of issues. Some of them relate to an addiction to complexity and some of it relates to a willingness to obfuscate. If you make your ideas complex enough so that nobody can understand it, that creates a seduction attraction to some, but people shouldn’t buy something they don’t understand.” – Rob Arnott

“We are in a business where you win by making fewer errors.” – Rob Arnott
