Fundamental Portfolio Software CEO Presents "Mistakes Money Managers Make"

Charlotte, NC (PressExposure) July 31, 2009 -- The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) North Carolina Society will host Cameron Hight, CFA, president and founder of Alpha Theory™ to discuss “The 8 Mistakes Money Managers Make and How to Fix Them Using Risk-Adjusted Return.” The presentation will explain how using Risk-Adjusted Return fixes these mistakes while creating a portfolio with higher potential return and less inherent risk.

“Many of the mistakes that money managers make come down to a simple issue; the inherent belief that portfolio managers should be able to monitor an entire portfolio of constantly changing assets, fundamentals and prices in their head,” says Hight. “To succeed over the long-term, mangers must create a systematic approach to research and portfolio management. The simple implementation of Risk-Adjusted Return solves both problems and creates a portfolio with higher potential return and less inherent risk.”

This event will be held Thursday, August 27 at 8:00 am at The Piedmont Club 200 West Second Street, 19th Floor in Winston-Salem AND at 12:00 noon at Capital City Club, 410 S. Wilmington Street, Suite 2100 in Raleigh. There is no cost for CFA North Carolina Society members and non-members pay $40. Register online at or call (919) 676-3577.
