George Yang, Ph.D. & CFA attends the 2014 China Finance Review International Conference

Bloomfield Hills, MI – July 22, 2014 – Flexible Plan Investments, Ltd., a leading provider of dynamic, risk-managed investment solutions, announces that George Yang, Ph.D. & CFA, Senior Portfolio Manager, will attend the 7th China Finance Review International Conference to be held July 26-27, 2014 at Antai College of Economics and Management, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China.

“It is our belief that an adaptive approach of probabilistic market timing is an important development toward the long sought after optimal timing model, and may bring us one step closer to settling the ‘passive’ versus ‘active’ investing debate,” explains Jerry Wagner, Founder & President of Flexible Plan.

Besides being an invited guest and research discussant at the Financial Engineering session of the conference, Dr. Yang will also be presenting a working paper titled, “Optimal Probabilistic Market Timing using Bull Bear Cycle Statistics,” co-authored with Mr. Wagner. With a theoretical formulation and detailed quantitative analysis, this recent research work demonstrates probabilistic market timing based on bull and bear market cycle statistics which can be effective for investments in the US and international markets as represented by broad stock market indexes.
