Project: Analysis of asset returns and investment strategy.

project duration

abstract
The objective of the project is to analyse asset returns and the application to investment strategies. Based on the statistical properties of the returns a number of traditional and novel valuation models will be tested. By treating risk as a multidimensional concept, we attempt to construct multifactor models in order to explain the evolution of asset returns. We also try to measure the effect of firm-specific and macroeconomic events on the behavior of asset returns.
