Q-Group Monthly Lunch Series

Wednesday 19th September 12:30 - 13:30 (with option to continue to 14:00)

Discussion leaders: Michael Kollo (HESTA) and Nick Wade (Northfield)

Discussion Topic: What Matters in the Long Term?

Additional notes: Following on from Geoff's discussion last month of Utility-based maximization for long term asset allocation, Nick and Michael will jointly lead a more general discussion on the features of asset returns at long horizons. Potential questions for discussion include:

*Are concepts like volatility and drawdown useful in ‘the long term’?

*What is the difference between risk with known asset characteristics, versus uncertainty of asset characteristics?

*Is the long-term uncertainty just a collection of smaller uncertainties, or something with a different dynamic (and let’s not just assume that non-normal becomes normal using CLT...)?

*What drives long-term dynamics?

If you would like to attend, please rsvp using the following link:[SYDNEY]_I_would_like_to_attend_lunch_series_September_2018

We will respond to all rsvps so that you can be certain whether a spot has been allocated.

If you are interested in being the discussion leader for a particular topic, then please contact us at In the long-term, our aim is for most (all?) members to lead a discussion at a lunch series event, so please do not be shy in contacting the committee.

Kind regards,

The Q-Group Committee
