The investment universe has been defined as seven developed economies and three asset classes, which are stocks, government bonds, and foreign currencies. The alpha strategy is a multifactor model based on valuation, growth, price dynamics, and intermarket action. Each relative value view has been updated monthly and stacked together to input to Black-Litterman portfolio optimization. The performance of long-short portfolio has been back-tested and analyzed. Both alpha model and portfolio construction are programmed using MATLAB.
