Picture of the Behavioral Alpha Webinar

Are you measuring conviction clearly and consistently?
Can you articulate it to clients and colleagues?
To what extent does conviction actually relate to alpha generation?


New research from Essentia shows that many equity portfolio managers consistently generate alpha in the positions where they show the most conviction and put more capital to work. Yet for most, it remains a highly subjective and ill-defined aspect of investment risk-taking.

Join leading Wall Street performance coach Denise Shull and host, Essentia CEO Clare Flynn Levy, for a free 45 minute webinar that explores the effect conviction has on our portfolio decision-making.
