Moneyball Investing: Avoiding the Losers in a Portfolio
If you’ve read the book or seen the movie, Moneyball, you may be familiar with the story of Billy Beane and how he and the Oakland A’s revolutionized sports management. By focusing on data rather than the ‘gut feelings’ felt by his scouts, he re-defined what ‘success’ meant in MLB. Now imagine those techniques applied to portfolio management.
Rather than relying on the ‘gut feelings’ of portfolio managers and research analysts, New Age Alpha has re-engineered active stock selection in the same way. Using a systematic and repeatable investment process that aims to avoid the losers rather than pick the winners New Age Alpha aims to deliver better returns with less risk.
New Age Alpha’s goal is to form long-term partnerships by helping advisors build their practice. We recognize the importance of showing your clients something they’ve never seen before. Our methodology and hands-on tool enrich the experience for both client and advisor by easily communicating how a portfolio can benefit from avoiding the losers.

On this webinar, Origin Investments Co-CEO David Scherer will discuss the ways private real estate benefits an investor’s portfolio and why an increasing number of RIAs are allocating to private real estate.
