The Desk | June 30, 2021
Business alpha refers to the way a business model can create value for an investment firm. On the other hand, investment alpha relates to portfolio management decisions, and operational alpha is all about utilising better data and technology in investment strategy.
In an article in The DESK, Dr Paul J Alapat, Chief Product Officer at Acuity Knowledge Partners, highlights how business alpha offers the most comprehensive set of options for asset managers in the present day.
