GPIF signs up Sony to study impact of AI on asset management

Sony Computer Science Laboratories will partner the Government Pension Investment Fund in studying how artificial intelligence can contribute to GPIF’s long-term asset management, according to an announcement on the Fund’s web site.

In addition the tie-up will look on an industry-wide basis at;

  • The impact of AI on asset managers’ business models and their consequent evaluation methodologies;
  • How AI technologies can be used to reinforce long-term investments decisions, including via dynamic factor analysis and scenario-based risk management;
  • The possible use of AI technologies to reconcile asset manager’s explanations of their investment decisions with the actual track of trading data.

The selection of Sony Computer Science Laboratories follows the issue of a request for proposals on the matter in July.
