Title: The Reasons Financial Machine-Learning Funds Usually Fail

133 West 33rd Street, New York, NY 10001

Abstract: The rate of failure in quantitative finance is high, and particularly so in financial Machine Learning. The few who succeed amass a large amount of assets, and deliver consistently exceptional performance to their investors. However, that is a rare outcome, for reasons that will become apparent in this seminar. Over the past two decades, I have seen many faces come and go, firms started and shut down. In my experience, there is one critical mistake underlying all those failures.
