I have now completed my CFA exams successfully June 2016!
This web page is the personal page for Franklin Ochs. All information contained on these pages is for entertainment/personal purposes only. For information about my career please see the vitae. I don't really see a difference between personal and work interests, you never know when one will swing over to the other and since 1/3rd of our lives is spent sleeping and 1/4 is spent at work it would be foolish not to make your work part of your personal interests. Some of my current interests.
- The 'average wage' myth
- Analysis (Beta and Alpha)
- Macro/Top Down analysis - controlling Beta by shifting assets
I feel like there has been a missing part to beta analysis particularly within the required rate of return which seems to be very elusive and non-stationary particularly within asset classes. I hope to start investigating this soon.
- Alternative Investments
- Regressional analysis
- Hunting and Fishing
- Distilling - see Ochs Distilling
Working with friends and colleagues now that I have a bit more time on my hands I should be posting some new projects. Hopefully working on these pages over the next several months as I look for new challenges I'll be updating information particularly in the economics section. While the CFA work I've been doing has been interesting I am an economist at heart and need to practice that science. Unfortunately the cost of a functional version of SAS
is execessive so I'm trying some new tools, particularly R and python.
That's all for now.
