Bob Taylor, MathWorks

In this webinar, you will learn how to use MATLAB to verify and validate complex investment strategies.  The approach seeks to model an event-driven strategy through Monte Carlo simulation at the instrument level, and to use the portfolio optimization tools - specifically the Conditional Value-at-Risk tools - to identify optimal trading strategies at the portfolio level.

In particular, the case study in this webinar determines the conditions needed to successfully implement a covered-call or buy-write strategy. Through simulation and subsequent optimization, it is possible to conclude that covered-call strategies are appropriate under a limited and unexpected set of circumstances.

At a higher level, this webinar demonstrates a workflow to analyze general investment strategies that exploits the powerful features available in the MATLAB environment.

Webinar highlights:
• Conditional Value-at-Risk portfolio optimization
• Monte Carlo simulation
• Event-driven strategy modeling
