We constantly learn more about investing, build disciplined strategies to capture the best of what we've learned, and share our broad findings with other curious investors.
The past two weeks have been a brutal market blizzard during what is now almost certainly an economic and investing winter. Blizzards are defined by extreme volatility and uncertainty—and we’ve had historic amounts of both since February 20th.
In 2019, we completed more research than in any prior year, built and launched Canvas, and shared 13 papers and over 50 podcasts. This letter is intened to share where markets stand at year end, and discuss what we built and learned at OSAM during 2019.
Today, I am excited to announce the release of Canvas, the first investing software that allows advisers and allocators to design, implement, and maintain deeply customized investment strategies. Building on OSAM’s 2+ decades of expertise in factor and systematic strategy design, Canvas hands allocators the keys to our best systems so they can design tailored strategies for their clients. Give your clients something they cannot find elsewhere—a strategy built uniquely for them.
