Charlotte, NC (PressExposure) February 12, 2009 -- Alpha Theory Founder and CEO, Cameron Hight, was recently interviewed on Biz Radio Networkâs âThe MoneyManâ with host Daniel Frishberg and co-host former Reagan Economic Advisor Dr. Arthur Laffer. Hight discussed common mistakes investors make including poor position sizing, under appreciation of downside risk, over confidence in asset selection, and inefficient use of Exchange Traded Funds.
The conclusion of this discussion was that many of the woes of investors could be solved by simply calculating a risk-adjusted return for every asset in their portfolio. The full interview can be heard on Alpha Theoryâs website or blog (www.AlphaTheory.com or blog.AlphaTheory.com) or Biz Radio Networkâs âThe MoneyMan Reportâ podcast.
âThe use of fundamentally based risk-adjusted return is rare in portfolio management today,â said Cameron Hight, Founder of Alpha Theory. âCalculating risk-adjusted return requires a firm to critically analyze the potential profit, downside risk and conviction level for every asset in their portfolio. Fortunately, these factors are natural byproducts of a fundamental research process. But many firms do not have a repeatable discipline to capture and utilize them for portfolio management purposes. That is where Alpha Theory fits in and helps overcome the mistakes discussed in my interview with Dan Frishberg.â
