Global maxima

We use supervised machine learning to select stocks we expect to outperform the global equity market. This is a high conviction global equities fund that invests in companies which are selected by a 'machine'. The M&G systematic equity team have applied machine learning techniques to investments - training the 'machine' using vast amounts of historic data to identify those companies with the characteristics that typically lead to outperformance.

The term ‘artificial intelligence’ refers to the broad study of developing algorithms to imitate human cognitive functions (such as pattern recognition). Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence that does not rely on a pre-defined set of rules developed by humans in order to make decisions or predictions. Rather, machine learning techniques ‘learn’ these rules from historic data and apply these learned rules to the real world to assist decision-making.
