The Science of Algorithmic Trading and Portfolio Management PDF is a reference book intended to provide traders, portfolio managers, analysts, students, practitioners, and financial executives with an overview of the electronic trading environment, and insight into how algorithms can be utilized to improve execution quality and fund performance.

We provide a discussion of the current state of the market and advanced modeling techniques for trading algorithms, stock selection, and portfolio construction.
This reference book will provide readers with:
An understanding of the new electronic trading environment.
An understanding of transaction cost analysis (TCA) and proper metrics for cost measurement and performance evaluation.
A thorough understanding of the different types of trading algorithms: liquidity seeking, dark pools, arrival price, implementation shortfall (IS), volume weighted average price (VWAP), arrival price, and portfolio implementation shortfall.
Proven market impact modeling techniques.
An understanding of algorithmic trading across various asset classes: equities, futures, fixed income, foreign exchange, and commodities.
Advanced algorithmic forecasting techniques to estimate daily liquidity and monthly volumes.
An algorithmic decision making framework to ensure consistency between investment and trading objectives.
A best execution process.

Readers will subsequently be prepared to:
Develop real-time trading algorithms customized to specific institutional needs.
Design systems to manage algorithmic risk and dark pool uncertainty.
Evaluate market impact models and assess performance across algorithms, traders, and brokers.
Implement electronic trading systems.

For the first time, portfolio managers are not forgotten and will be provided with proven techniques to better construct portfolios through:
Stock Selection
Portfolio Optimization
Asset Allocation
MI Factor Scores
Multi-Asset Investing
Factor Exposure Investing

The book is categorized in three parts. Part I focuses on the current electronic market environment where we discuss trading algorithms, market microstructure research, and transaction cost analysis. Part II focuses on the necessary mathematical models that are used to construct, calibrate, and test market impact models, as well as to develop single stock and portfolio trading algorithms. The section further discusses volatility and factor models, as well as advanced algorithmic forecasting techniques. Part III focuses on portfolio management techniques and how TCA and market impact can be incorporated into the investment decisions, stock selection, and portfolio construction to improve portfolio performance. We introduce readers to an advanced portfolio optimization process that incorporates market impact and transaction costs directly into the portfolio optimization. We provide insight into how MI factor scores can be used to improve stock selection, as well as a technique that can be used by portfolio managers to decipher broker-dealer black box models. This section concludes with an overview of high frequency trading, and the necessary mathematical knowledge required to develop black box trading models.
