Fund flows and allocations data has generally been used as a discretionary input to track the overall risk appetite in the market across different asset classes, countries, or sectors. However, systematic use cases of fund flows in quantitative investment strategies have been of interest just recently. In this talk, we will explore recent research by EPFR Quantitative Research Team to better understand the quantitative use cases of fund flow and allocations data as predictors of asset returns.


Sayad Baronyan specializes in quantitative strategies, new data product development, and research consultation. He joined Informa Financial Services, EPFR in November 2018, as a quantitative analyst. In his role, Sayad focuses on building and maintaining quantitative strategies, giving clients consultation about these strategies and authoring white papers and blog posts.
