At times like these, when nothing seems to be working in the financial markets, risk parity strategies should act as a kind of shock absorber. It’s a simple concept, really. Unless you have reason to believe that one investment is better than another, you should take equal risk in each. This gives you maximum diversification, and diversification is still the only free lunch in finance.

Risk parity gained popularity during the crash of 2008, but interest gradually declined over the following years when the stock market only rose. Diversification has become cool again since the start of the pandemic as a mitigant in an uncertain and unstable world. But these funds have not always managed to perform as advertised, leaving investors, especially non-professionals, with unexpected losses.

While risk parity has been interpreted in various ways, the working definition for asset managers today is a fund that tries to take equal volatility between stocks, bonds and commodities, with overall volatility target which is most often 10% per year. This is approximately the volatility of a classic portfolio invested 60% in stocks and 40% in bonds. But because equities are more volatile than bonds, 60/40 has taken 82% of its equity risk over the past 10 years and therefore gained only limited diversification benefit from bonds and none from commodities. . In theory, and based on empirical evidence going back decades, risk parity should deliver consistently better returns with the same volatility as 60/40.

However, over the past 10 years, taking excessive risk on stocks has been a winning move. Equities averaged 10.9% pa, bonds -0.9% and commodities -0.4%.(1) As a result, the risk parity index did not reported as 6.0% with a realized volatility of 10.8%, compared to 6.3% with a volatility of 10.1% for a 60/40 Portfolio.(2)

But as Cliff Asness, chief investment officer of AQR Capital Management LLC (who I spent a decade working for) points out, that’s not the way to look at it for most investors. If you had to choose between putting all your money in a risk parity fund versus 60% in stocks and 40% in bonds, you would choose the higher return and lower volatility. But most investors think of adding risk parity to an existing portfolio. Risk parity has an “alpha” relative to 60/40, which means that a combination of risk parity and 60/40 does better than 60/40 alone. If you put 20% in risk parity and 80% in 60/40, you’ve had an annual return of 6.3% over the past 10 years, with volatility of 9.8% — essentially the same return as 60 /40 with a little less volatility.

While these statistics are not inspiring, remember that they were made during the longest equity bull market in history, when bonds and commodities lost money. Few investors have the confidence that will characterize the next 10 years. Given that risk parity was only slightly below 60/40 on an absolute basis, and added value when combined with 60/40, in the worst possible market, there is reason to think it might be a good addition to stock/bond portfolios in the future.

Stocks are down 16.5% with 19.8% volatility over the past year, and bonds are down even more, 19.8% with 6.3% volatility. Thus, 60/40 was crushed, losing 17.5% with a volatility of 13.5%. In this disastrous year, risk parity didn’t work well – two-thirds of its risk was in underperforming assets – but it was helped by a record 22.9% return for commodities. (although with an exorbitant volatility of 20.2%). Net income was a down year, minus 11.3% with volatility of 14.3%, but a strong performance compared to 60/40. Over the past year, an 80% 60/40 portfolio with a risk parity of 20% added 1.2% to annual returns and reduced volatility by 0.5% compared to a pure 60/40 portfolio .

Unfortunately, while risk parity works in theory and has a respectable track record over the past decade, the risk parity funds made available to the public have not lived up to the theory. The table below shows statistics for some public funds over the past year (the UPAR Ultra Risk Parity ETF only has 36 weeks of data and AQR has renamed its risk parity fund, although it still follows the principles of risk parity while having added active management).

Why do most public funds lag so far behind the index? Two reasons. First, the S&P Risk Parity Index ended up taking 5.0% volatility on stocks, 6.2% on commodities and 6.5% on bonds. Of course, it tries to achieve equal volatility across all three asset classes, but it’s impossible to perfectly predict future volatility. The RPAR allocation was 4.1%/2.4%/5.3%, a significant underweight in commodities. PanAgora did better, 6.0%/4.5%/5.2%, but still underweight commodities. UPAR was unbalanced with 9.2%/3.6%/7.5%. Wealthfront actually had short equity volatility, with -1.1%/3.0%/4.0%. Only the AQR was close to parity with 3.9%/4.6%/4.7%.

The second reason was performance relative to a constant allocation. The S&P Risk Parity Index beat a constant allocation to the three asset classes by 9.0%. This outperformance stems from the modification of allocations during the year to maintain constant volatility, which contributed significantly to performance. Basically, volatility rose in asset classes before prices fell and fell before prices rose.

The RPAR lost 2.9% due to the constant allocation, which in addition to the change in allocation is caused by the fees (the S&P index and the component indices are displayed without fees) and also by the selection of portfolios stocks, commodities and bonds that differ from indices. PanAgora lost 5.5% at constant allocation, UPAR lost 4.7% and Wealthfront lost 13.0%. Only the AQR fund wins, 5.9%.

This is not a year calculated to bring investors back to risk parity. Most risk parity funds in the market have provided dismal returns and even the best fund and the index have lost money. Quants will continue to sing the praises of diversification and alpha, but until retail risk parity managers can get closer to theory and we get a period of actual positive returns, I think risk parity will remain an institutional strategy.

Print election advertisements in decline in Kuwait

KUWAIT CITY, September 24: Choosing the right colors for any advertisement makes all the difference between scaring off customers and/or bringing them into your store, restaurant or even election campaign. In Kuwait’s National Assembly elections in 2022, parliamentary hopefuls choose their campaign designs and slogans, but they’ve focused their attention on choosing the most eye-catching formation to say they’re here and ready to serve the people. In an interview with the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA), art critic professor Dr. Reham Al-Rughaib said roads in Kuwait and various media platforms were overrun with election campaigns using an assortment of colors with varying degrees of alleged attractiveness.

A large number of male and female voters flocked to a number of electoral seats

Some candidates use certain colors to display their political and ideological alignments, she said, revealing that she noticed blue was mostly used by male candidates to evoke feelings of calm and tranquility. If a candidate uses the color red, he mostly emits feelings of courage and confrontation, which some like about MPs, Dr Al-Rugaib said. Orange says the person is trying to be creative, yellow reflects happiness, gray represents an unbiased view, white is reflected on the dishdasha (traditional clothing worn by men) that most applicants wear, and black is usually used for fonts, she said. For her part, psychology consultant and color therapist Suhair Al-Mufidi said colors play a vital role in attracting votes because of their scientific and psychological impact on human beings. People usually choose warm colors such as orange, red and yellow to attract attention, while cool colors are used to radiate calm and peace, Al-Mufidi added.

Combination
Those who use a combination of black and gold in their campaigns mean that they live by being authoritarian and prestigious in the case of black and silver, the candidates displayed authoritarian tendencies and a social nature, a- she added. Dr. Saleh Al-Saeedi, a professor of psychology at Kuwait University (KU), also said that choosing the right color was important to show where the candidates came from and what they were ready to do for them. reach parliament. Dr Al-Saeedi said the color orange, for example, was mainly used to display affiliation to certain groups or blocs, adding that some candidates would choose colors to calm people down and try to trust their abilities.

On the commercial front, advertising company partner Abdullah Al-Fadhli said most candidates in this year’s elections preferred to choose the colors of the Kuwaiti flag in their advertisements. Blue was the most popular color, while red and orange have an equal presence on various billboards and social media ads, he added. Al-Fahdli’s colleague at the same company and head of marketing, Abbas Mandani, noticed that most candidates did not deviate when using colors for their campaigns. Mandani that far beyond the choice of color to use in advertising, there is an overwhelming sense of change on the horizon when it comes to this election.

Meanwhile, print election advertisements appeared to be on the decline, especially during the current campaign for the 2022 National Assembly elections in Kuwait on September 29. computers. This apparent decline of print media was not born recently, it coincided with the huge leap in technology seen in our modern age. Speaking to KUNA on the matter, the editor of Al-Anbaa news daily, Mohammad Al-Husseini, said that election campaigns in recent years have seen a decline in advertising using the print medium, noting that around 85% of advertisements in newspapers these days look to social media platforms for praise.

Targets
Print media typically target petitioners, business leaders and likely government employees, Al-Husseini added. The high cost of advertising in print media also appears to be a culprit for the decline, he said. Meanwhile, Abdullah Al-Ulaiyan – editor of Al-Nukhba online news – said print media has not completely disappeared from the scene, revealing that a large part of the public still read print newspapers. Some preferred to read the daily via PDF format, Al-Ulaiyan noted, adding that newspapers these days are also venturing into platforms such as YouTube, WhatsApp and others to deliver their content to the masses. He indicated that the whole idea of ​​killing print media was far-fetched, saying that digital media could not undo its print counterpart and vice versa.

Traditional media like radio, television and newspapers could expand their reach and have a digital arm to continue being relevant nowadays, Al-Ulaiyan added. For his part, media professor at Kuwait University (KU), Dr. Mohammad Al-Otaibi, said the decline in election advertising in the print media was not something recent, the advent and the proliferation of social media had played a crucial role in this regard. Social media and the digital platform have a wide and extensive reach, attracting thousands if not millions of audiences, he noted, indicating that candidates in these elections had paid attention to the power of digital media to attract voters and convince them to give them their vote. Despite the massive reach of digital media platforms, Kuwaitis still prefer to visit candidates’ headquarters to see what they have to offer in the 2022 National Assembly elections. Eligible voters seem to be obsessed with the idea that they need to see the candidates in person before deciding to vote on September 29.

Prince Harry ‘chartered a £30,000 private jet to Balmoral on the day the Queen died’ https://www.tempo-visuel.com/prince-harry-chartered-a-30000-private-jet-to-balmoral-on-the-day-the-queen-died/ Sat, 24 Sep 2022 09:56:41 +0000 https://www.tempo-visuel.com/prince-harry-chartered-a-30000-private-jet-to-balmoral-on-the-day-the-queen-died/

Prince Harry ‘chartered a £30,000 private jet to Balmoral on the day the Queen died’ as it is claimed he learned of the monarch’s death following a last-minute announcement on line

  • Harry and Meghan were in the UK by coincidence when the Queen died
  • The Prince did not join other members of the Royal Family as they traveled to Balmoral to see the Queen
  • King Charles reportedly made it clear Meghan Markle couldn’t join Balmoral
  • Reports say Harry discovered the Queen’s death on his phone on the plane

Prince Harry paid £30,000 for a private jet to reach Balmoral on the day of the Queen’s death before learning of her death from a news app on his phone minutes before landing, it said -we reported.

Harry and Meghan were in the UK by coincidence when news about the Queen’s failing health began to emerge.

King Charles and Princess Anne were with the Queen at Balmoral, while Prince Andrew, Prince William and Prince Edward were flown to Aberdeen Airport on a royal plane.

Harry, who is no longer a member of the royal family since moving to California with Meghan, spoke to King Charles who reportedly said “very clearly” that Meghan Markle was unwelcome, according to reports.

Britain’s new king phoned his youngest son and told him it was ‘not appropriate’ for the former Suits actress to be there, according to reports, much to Harry’s frustration.

It is also claimed that in the ensuing row, in which Harry fought to persuade his father to allow Meghan to come with him, he missed a flight carrying William and their uncles Andrew and Edward to Scotland – and with him the chance to say goodbye.

Harry was reportedly so furious after the argument that he dined with Prince Andrew, then Prince Edward, instead of his brother and father.  Pictured: The Prince of Wales, the Duke of York and the Earl and Countess of Wessex arrive at Balmoral following the Queen's death

A private plane was then mapped to get Harry to Balmoral as quickly as possible to join the rest of the Royal Family.

Although initial reports suggest Harry discovered the Queen’s death through a phone call from his father, The Telegraph reported that the call was never successful.

King Charles repeatedly tried to reach Harry, who knew he was trying to contact him, but was unable to speak to his son before the Queen died.

Instead, Harry heard of Her Majesty delivering a last-minute notification to her phone.

However, palace sources insisted the official announcement “has not been made until all family members have been notified”.

A source said: ‘The official announcement has been delayed until everyone has been made aware,’ a source said.

“Part of the problem was getting hold of the Duke of Sussex.”

Photos of Harry arriving at Balmoral by car showed the prince looking gloomy and downcast.

Once there, he reportedly snubbed dinner with the King, furious that Meghan was not allowed to join him at Balmoral.

He would have eaten with Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex instead.

Others have denied the claims, with one source saying “no dinner invitations have been issued”.

Another added: ‘It’s all less coordinated and more chaotic than people think.

“It was a difficult and upsetting day for everyone.”

Meta invites creators to engage more with the platform by releasing a guide on how to go viral on Facebook / Digital Information World https://www.tempo-visuel.com/meta-invites-creators-to-engage-more-with-the-platform-by-releasing-a-guide-on-how-to-go-viral-on-facebook-digital-information-world/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 18:00:00 +0000 https://www.tempo-visuel.com/meta-invites-creators-to-engage-more-with-the-platform-by-releasing-a-guide-on-how-to-go-viral-on-facebook-digital-information-world/

Meta recently released a guide detailing how the Facebook News Feed algorithm works and how it can be used to achieve success.

Learning how to crack the algorithm is something every major or even beginner content creator dreams of; I imagine it’s easy to imagine direct secret paths to success that don’t involve a lot of hard work. However, there is no ultimate shortcut, and everyone needs to put in the work to achieve effective results. Naturally, platforms like Facebook are increasingly interested in having their user base make such an effort, as more creators make the site more profitable. This is why, following such reflection, the social network decided to produce an infographic accompanied by a complete article which breaks down the algorithm of the news feed, what attracts it and what does not. not attract.

First, the article explains what a message is and the types of audiences that are attracted to it. Naturally, factors such as friend lists, location, and topic have a huge influence on how effective any piece of content will be with the community as a whole. Therefore, for starters, it’s important to stay social online to maintain a modicum of success. People who interact with larger groups of accounts will naturally have more audience members to engage with or invite to engage with.

The reach and engagement levels of an individual’s posts are also strongly determined by how well they are shared by the community as a whole; therefore, it is important that the messages appeal to the masses just enough to invite such behavior. Facebook also decides to categorize posts according to whether they are more likely to be shared by an individual’s friends or by the platform’s community as a whole. This is what developers call a connected or unconnected distribution model. The latter will naturally lead to greater numbers, but it will take time and patience to establish such a connection with individuals in general.

The article even links to an entirely separate story from 2021 that specifies how the News Feed decides what to favor and what not. Spoiler alert: this largely depends on the commercial appeal of the release, so maybe save relatively more mature content for other platforms such as Clubhouse (ok, just kidding, let’s not be reckless here ).

No-denial payday loans are one of the best alternatives for Canadians who are strapped for cash but can’t wait for loans from high street lenders or aren’t qualified for most loans.

[via press release from HBO]


HBO’s Emmy(R)-winning unscripted series WE ARE HERE returns for its third season November 25

Shangela, Eureka and Bob the Drag Queen at a ‘Just Say Gay’ rally in Brevard County, Florida to protest the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.

The Emmy(R) and GLAAD Award-winning unscripted series WE’RE HERE returns for a six-episode third season on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT). Episodes will debut weekly on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.

This series follows renowned drag queens Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara and Shangela as they continue their journey through small town America, spreading love and connection through the art of drag. This season, the Queens are recruiting a diverse group of local residents from Granbury, TX; St. George, UT; Brevard County, Florida; Jackson, MS; and Sussex, NJ to share their stories, raise awareness and promote acceptance in their communities by participating in one-night-only drag shows. In each city, the queens inspire their “drag girls” to speak out in front of their families, friends and communities, sometimes in the face of increased opposition and anti-LGBTQ+ laws.

The critically acclaimed second season was praised by Variety for uncovering “deeper truths about small town America that are often presented through a reductive lens, while finding the nuances of life and diversity”. One of Esquire’s “10 Best TV Shows of 2021,” the season was hailed for having “so much heart” by NPR, and Decider applauded it for being “the kind of show that can actually bring a legitimate change in life”.

The third season of WE’RE HERE is created and executive produced by Stephen Warren and Johnnie Ingram; directed and produced by Peter LoGreco; executive produced by Eli Holzman & Aaron Saidman and Erin Gamble for The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC), part of Sony Pictures Television. Caldwell Tidicue (Bob the Drag Queen), “Eureka” D. Huggard (Eureka O’Hara), and DJ Pierce (Shangela) serve as the series’ producers.

‘Grand Theft Auto VI’ leak is Rockstar’s nightmare, YouTuber’s dream https://www.tempo-visuel.com/grand-theft-auto-vi-leak-is-rockstars-nightmare-youtubers-dream/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 18:11:25 +0000 https://www.tempo-visuel.com/grand-theft-auto-vi-leak-is-rockstars-nightmare-youtubers-dream/

For the past few years, eager ‘Grand Theft Auto’ fans have attempted to pull off their own heist, aiming to extract even one piece of concrete information about ‘Grand Theft Auto VI’, the inevitable sequel to the second best-selling game of all time. Over the weekend, they finally made it – sort of.

On Sunday, a pirate fled over 90 clips of developer Rockstar’s mid-pregnancy heir, prompting a mix of excitement and criticism from fans and outrage from game developers. But in truth, it probably changes the overall trajectory of “GTA VI” very little. It’s just more water for a content mill born out of a secret industry and a social media ecosystem that incites sensationalism and bad faith.

Without a doubt, this was one of the biggest leaks in video game history, although it consisted of images (apparently obtained from Rockstar’s internal Slack messaging system) rather than into stolen source code that could actually delay the finished product, ala the the infamous 2003 leak of Valve’s “Half-Life 2”. However, he was met general wringing of the hands developers and experts from across the industry, who expressed their sympathy for Rockstar to show the unfinished business to the teeming masses. While many fans visibly watched the first footage of player characters escaping the police and exploring a quiet nightclub with indulgent eyes, some expressed outrage at having waited nearly a decade for what they perceived as a sloppy hodgepodge of poor graphics and stiff animations.

For the uninitiated, this may seem like a strange reaction. After all, as Kotaku points out, people don’t look at Hollywood set photos and assume that the background of a finished movie will be all green. But the video game industry — at least, when it comes to big-budget productions that rival Hollywood in scale and cost — has long been obsessed with tightly controlled PR campaigns in the service of numbers. preorder upholstered. Games aren’t usually shown to the public until they’re both gorgeous and spectacular, or their unpolished edges are hidden behind gameplay-less, computer-generated trailers and non-guiding demos for years. . Companies have spent decades insisting on absolute control, keeping employees under NDA and pretend whole games don’t exist just to maintain it.

Analysis: Two of Twitch’s biggest stars pull it off

This comes up against an inescapable reality: the games really don’t come together until they’re near the finish line. The developers use gray walls and boxes to simulate what will eventually become vast cities or dew-covered forests. Characters T-pose instead of walking, running or flying. Glitches abound. Despite efforts – often by smaller developers – to demystify the unsexy realities of game development, neatly nurtured PR cycles have contributed to the idea that games come out of the oven fully formed. Conversely, if they don’t debut in pristine condition, that must be a sign of trouble.

It’s not helped by the fact that big companies have used the hype to veil half-baked games, most notoriously when CD Projekt Red’s massively anticipated 2020 release “Cyberpunk 2077” launched in a state so unfinished that Sony ended up pulling it temporarily from the PlayStation Store (just one of many consequences).

The low-key approach of major publishers has allowed social media to fill the void. On YouTube and Twitter, as well as many smaller websites that feed off of Google traffic, there’s a whole cottage industry of rumors surrounding games like “GTA VI.” These people have already spent years pretending to be insiders knowing intimate details about the creation of “GTA VI” when in reality most of them are making things up. They regularly post articles and videos that contain fake maps and screenshots, as well as false claims that a release date is fast approaching. Some of them collect millions of views. This has a ripple effect: fans eventually hear so many about “GTA VI” – even though it’s actually a big load of nothing – they assume the game must be almost ready for prime time.

Content creators are incentivized to do this because of the way major platforms are structured: games like “Grand Theft Auto” are hugely popular, meaning people search for them every day and increase content focused on them in the upper echelons of the algorithms. The constant turnover and continued silence from companies means there are few consequences to getting it wrong. Wait a week or two and everyone will forget or move on.

Faced with their first recession, Twitch streamers are tightening their belts

So-called leaks have become such a mainstay of online video game culture that some have begun to “leak” information even upon receiving it through legitimate means. This week, for example, a leaker who went through “The Real Insider” handle slipped and turned out to be a YouTuber with nearly 200,000 subscribers who had just used another account to notify people of upcoming releases like “Assassin’s Creed Mirage” before publisher-designated press embargoes were in place.

The same social media content mill that sent fans into a frenzy before the leak is enjoying it now. While Rockstar has done its best to remove actual gameplay footage from major platforms, with many YouTube videos sporting sensational titles like “Rockstar Calls GTA 6 Leaker a Liar?!” dissect everything from “GTA VI”‘s graphics to its impact on publisher Take-Two’s stock price (currently $119.98, down 6.16% in the past five days).

It is worth asking who really benefits from this state of affairs. Not the fans, who learn nothing of value until publishers are ready to begin profit-maximizing, sometimes misleading (or until reporters investigate them). Not the individual developers, whose hard work ends up being misunderstood and maligned, which regularly leads to harassment. Recognizing this, some developers at other studios spent the week posting videos of previously released games like Remedy’s “Control” and Microsoft’s “Sea of ​​Thieves” at a time when they were in unflattering states. It was eye-opening to see these multi-million dollar products without animation and with Giant mustachioed pill taking the place of the characters, but it shouldn’t. Every game starts somewhere, after all.

Only big publishers and companies like YouTube reap measurable rewards by honoring their respective ends of this toxic cycle – and even that is debatable. A leak like this isn’t going to sink Rockstar or its parent company, Take-Two, nor will an intentional debunking of Rockstar’s game-making process led by those who make the game. When “GTA VI” releases in several years, it will almost certainly sell tens of millions of copies on name value alone, putting smiles on shareholders’ faces and money in their pockets. It’s also likely to be a stellar video game, if Rockstar’s previous pedigree is to be believed. Fans will likely be sated. The escape will become a distant memory.

With this in mind, what is the point of all this secrecy, of allowing bad faith actors on fatally flawed platforms to dictate the discussion around new games? Why continue to do things this way, other than the fact that this is how the video game industry has always done it?
