Daniele Bernardi, CEO of DIAMAN For the wealth management industry, the pandemic and subsequent volatility provoked has shifted investor perceptions towards investment advice, with many now placing more importance on retaining a human-touch within advisory services. Covid-19 sent the global markets into free fall as countries halted day-to-day activity, in order to halt the virus. Investors panicked – even those with the right advice lost money and those with less advice lost much more. According to DIAMAN’s survey of over 1000 investors in the UK, recent market uncertainty has left investors on automated advice platforms feeling unsupported. In fact, over half (54%) of respondents aged 18-25 said that, since the beginning of Covid-19 induced market volatility, they have lost trust in using robo advisors, with many (67%) investors now calling for a digital experience that also enables interaction with a human advisor, without the fees typically associated with bespoke services.Read more

MARKETING ACCORDING TO DIAMAN. A HISTORY OF RELATIONSHIPS.
In the age of thousands communication possibilities, of the multiple tools, touch points and technologies to contact one’s public, at Diaman we take another path. Without clearly neglecting the possibility of reaching many people through the so-called paid media, the channels in which one can invest to promote themselves, we must admit that we do little – some would say too little – use of them. We really like to take care of owned media, dedicating time and resources to create interesting, useful and relevant content for our users. It seems effective to us to share our knowledge and the data we have collected with our followers. We like it more than making them mere recipients of promotional banners. We are proud carriers of certain values, such as that of transparency and independence, which in our world are fundamental and distinguish us. So, we communicate it. We rely on thoseRead more

The fallacy of Mean/Variance indicators.
I’d like to present a lesson by professor Ruggero Bertelli on the subject of deterministic statistical indicators as they compare to classic indicators of mean and variance. LET’S SEE IT IN ACTIONAssuming we have an investment that in the first year earned 10%, the following year lost 10%, the third year earned another 10% and the fourth year lost 10%, what would be the return on investment at the end of the four years? THINK ABOUT YOUR ANSWER BEFORE YOU KEEP READINGIf your answer was zero, perhaps you forgot that returns are not linear, and losses are not equal to the returns necessary to recover them. If I’ve lost 50%, to return to the initial value I would have to earn 100%. If I lost 10%, to get even, I’d have to make almost 11% back, as you can see from the image below. At the four-year mark, I’d findRead more
Are financial markets Random or Deterministic?
Allow me the concession of not having a definitive answer; this question has haunted investment operators for many years. LET’S START WITH THE DEFINITION: Random Markets state that the market’s performance moves without any pre-established patterns and is not tied to external factors that modify the trend, or the trend of the market day after day. By definition, in a random market it is not possible to profit from the interpretation of the market itself (would be as random as trying to profit from the sequence of numbers that come out of the casino roulette). Deterministic Markets describe the belief that their performance is influenced by external factors that modify their course, so by knowing what these external factors are, it is possible to make a profit (the results of a motor race for example, are deterministic, in the sense that you can know in advance who will be amongRead more
