Man or Machine: Who's Really Driving Your Portfolio?

Third Quarter 2020 

Artificial intelligence could help achieve better investment outcomes by augmenting—not replacing—the intelligence of asset managers.

From our sub-adviser, Schroders Investment Management
Mark Ainsworth
Head of Data Insights and Analytics


Artificial intelligence (AI) is an increasingly popular topic for the finance industry. Despite recent advances, many applications of this extraordinarily expansive area of computer science are still in their infancy. This is particularly the case with regard to AI and asset management. It is our belief that the real source of help to the industry is Intelligence Augmentation (IA), which uses AI to help humans make decisions, rather than making the decisions for them. Here, we explore the ways in which human-led data science can be used in a sustainable and repeatable way to improve outcomes for investors.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.
