‘Quantamentals’ are taking over, says Syz AM funds chief

Cedric Vuignier, who heads up Alternative Ucits and the fund selection arm at SYZ Asset Management, comments on the new prominence of big data and ‘quantamentals’ in asset management. He tells Citywire Selector that while it has encouraged passive management, we will likely see a rise in volatility very soon, which should restore confidence in active management.
