Portfolio Rebalancing Using R and Sybase RAP for Intraday Risk Management 

With volatility and violent intraday swings becoming the new normal, intraday risk controls are now needed to not only reduce your exposures across multiple asset classes, but also to gain competitive advantage. This webinar, hosted by Sybase and Yale researchers from Phronesis will demonstrate using a sample portfolio, how you can rebalance the portfolio to minimize risk while increasing returns.   

It will make use of the R “PerformanceAnalytics ” package for optimal portfolio rebalancing while minimizing risk. The webinar will leverage Sybase RAP, a platform for market data management and analytics, for storing historical market data, which can be accessed from R, and the relevant subset of historical data can be pre-processed and extracted for analysis within R.  Results of rebalancing the portfolio using different timeframes (daily, vs. weekly, etc.) will be discussed. 

Join Sybase and Yale researchers from Phronesis as we discuss how usage of R and Sybase RAP can improve portfolio rebalancing and intraday risk oversight.
