Seresia believe that investment research should be driven by process and not by individuals’ whims. The financial market is a well mix of fear, greed, truths, lies, rational and irrational tactics adopted by investors of all competency levels. In dealing with such a dynamic market, Seresia aim to identify and understand the drivers of returns for different time frames (short term, medium to long term). For example, what drive equities long term returns? How returns are correlated to economic / secular / demographic trends? How effective are technical analyses for short term gains & losses?

 

Seresia investment team combine all expertise of the team and use a set of fundamental / A.I. / quantitative tools to identify the true drivers of investment return with the highest probabilistic confidence level. We have in place a sophisticated process and inputs from our team include business cycle and market correlation analysis, factor return model, fundamental analysis, technical and algorithmic trading strategies.
