My guest this episode is Clayton Gillespie, VP at Deutsche Bank where he works in quant equity research for the QIS team.

Clayton began his career at Credit Suisse HOLT, where he got his hands dirty in extracting fundamental information. This formative experience dramatically impacted how he views how fundamentals should be incorporated into quantitative equity strategies.

Today, at DB, he strives to improve quantitative equity strategies by anchoring them with a strong fundamental understanding.

We discuss how fundamental and statistical interpretations can be at odds, how a strong fundamental understanding can help with the identification of emergent risk factors during regime changes, and how best to incorporate fundamental insights while avoiding potential biases from the analysts who deliver them.

Please enjoy my conversation with Clayton Gillespie.
