Andrew Lo

In the last of his Clarendon lectures in finance, Andrew Lo examines how the dynamics of the hedge fund industry can be understood through the lens of adaptive markets. He draws on examples such as the quant-equity meltdown in August 2007 and the sub-prime mortgage crisis to show the importance of using conjecture and analysis to examine explanatory narratives in order to provide a greater understanding of the behaviour of financial markets. Lo concludes by showing how financial markets can thrive by evolving with the times, becoming adaptable and by improving future decision-making through comprehensive investigations into the history of market behaviour.
