The New TSX60

The investment business is primarily about beating a sector benchmark, or peer funds, or simply delivering more than a composite index. Though 90% of the money managers fail to consistently beat the benchmark, delivering more than the benchmark is considered as a filter which separates the outperformers from the rest. While the market community is focused on this outperformance, little research has been done on financial innovation which recreates, redefines, recalculate the benchmark (composite index) itself, to make a new benchmark. Very few have attempted this feat like S&P Dow Jones Indices, Russell and Fundamental index, the innovators end up becoming the new market itself.

Extreme reversion is an idea that redefines 1902 Mean Reversion, redefines 1950 Behavioral finance, looks at market as a dynamical system (Chaos) and marries value with momentum. Indexing is a new financial innovation which works across asset classes, across regions, across styles and strategies. The speaker will present how the new index methodology can be used to recreate, redefine, and recalculate the TSX 60 in various ways to enhance ALPA while maintaining a desired utility. Market participants can use the strategy for active or passive investing, as an ETF or a managed account.
