Quantpedia in April 2023

Hello all,

Over the last month, our team has been working on significant expansion of the “Strategy Grading” report to enhance the analysis of the chosen model portfolio (or individual strategy) compared to its peers. This improvement allows Quantpedia Pro clients to better assess the risk and performance of their selected strategy or model portfolio relative to a relevant group of strategies and ETFs, providing valuable insights into the effectiveness of their chosen approach. By enabling these comparisons, you can make more informed decisions about potential adjustments or improvements to your investment strategies.

The Model Portfolio vs. Asset Universe (Volatility Adjusted) Performances charts – depict the equity curve of your selected Model Portfolio against its peers (ETFs or Quantpedia’s systematic trading strategies). The chart that shows volatility-adjusted performance rescales competing strategies to the same volatility as the selected Model Portfolio; therefore, it better shows how your portfolio fares against alternatives on a risk-adjusted basis. Of course, the higher the equity curve of your portfolio is, the better.

The Sharpe Ratio Percentile Curve chart displays in another way how your Model Portfolio (and its constituents) fares against ETFs or Quantpedia’s systematic trading strategies.

The Asset Universe Clustering uses the Partitioning Around Medoids clustering method to find the clusters in the universe of ETFs (or Quantpedia’s systematic trading strategies) and shows how related is the Model Portfolio to its alternatives.

Let’s also quickly recapitulate Quantpedia Premium development:
