Jamie Dimon on JPMorgan’s Big Data Strategy

See original image

Large banks like JPMorgan have always had big data, but in a letter to shareholders released Wednesday, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon likened the difference between yesterday’s and today’s big data to the difference between a rotary phone and a cellphone.

“To best utilize our data assets and spur innovation, we have built our own extraordinary in-house big data capabilities – we think as good as any in Silicon Valley – populated with more than 200 analysts and data scientists, which we call Intelligent Solutions,” Dimon wrote.

Dimon outlined at least five ways the firm has incorporated big data into improving business processes. In the corporate and investment bank, big data is being deployed to improve operational efficiency by analyzing errors. In custody for example, the firm uses big data to identify and find the root cause of breaks in processes or variances in the net asset values of funds. The result has reduced the operational burden and improved client service, Dimon wrote. Continue reading

Market Views from S Naren of ICICI Prudential

S Naren, CIO – ICICI Prudential AMC, shares his outlook on the equity markets for 2016, the problems the markets are facing currently and explains why investing in the current bear phase will be rewarding for investors.

Notes: Just for the record, S Naren has been one of the few fund managers who has been very successful in getting broad market direction right. In Jan 2015 he called for investors to move into bonds and wait for markets to stabilize and earnings growth to come through. In Aug 2013, when Nifty was at 5150, he was of clear view that investors should buy Nifty or broad based mutual funds to benefit from upswing as valuations were crushed. That was also a very valuable assessment.

George Soros on Financial Markets

In this valuable video, George Soros shares his lifetime learnings on Financial Markets. Some of the key messages are:
1. In business cycles, Earnings (EPS) rise will lead Valuation(P/E) rise, and Earnings (EPS) fall will lead Valuation(P/E) fall because investors tend to extrapolate the present into the future.
2. Whatever is known to the majority, can not create profits (competitive advantage).
3. Markets discount all the known things. The profits are in the unknown (events of the future), which are not yet discounted by the market.
