Luncheon with Prof Carsten Murawski (Sydney)

Decision making for Complex Problems

Asset managers are well aware of the sheer complexity they face in solving investment problems and have developed sophisticated models steeped in the traditions of advanced statistics to help them. Many of these models emphasise amassing large amounts of information to produce ever more accurate estimations.

But Professor Murawski believes that the solution to complex problems relies more on how existing information is combined, rather than on the acquisition of ever more data. In this luncheon seminar co-hosted with Perpetual Investments, he will present the latest research from the University of Melbourne’s Brain, Mind & Markets Lab on decision making for complex problems.
