Engaging New Controversial Original Rigorous Entertaining

Mining alpha from 13F Filings

Mobeen Iqbal

12th of November 2019 London Quant Group Eventing Seminar

Generously hosted by Goldman Sachs International 2 Stonecutter Street, London EC4A 4AH

All institutions holding more than $100 million in US listed securities are required to disclose their holdings to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) no later than 45 days after each quarter-end under a form known as 13F. Mobeen will review how to identify funds’ “best ideas” using tests and techniques in Cohen, Polk, and Silli (2010) (which you can download) and some new measures tailored to hedge fund analysis.

Only data from managers that have longer-term views are useful in constructing strategies that harness the 13F filings – so they have to be identified first.

A strategy that combines longer-term managers implied conviction and consensus has appealing performance characteristics. Prepare for a graph with a 45 degree line from bottom left to top right!
