Richard Liu Qiangdong often referred to as Liu Quingdong, is one of the richest men in China, with an emphatic story behind his success. Richard Liu gets much attention from the business world, not only because he is a billionaire investor, but also because he is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of China’s largest retailer, JD.com. According to Forbes, Richard Liu’s e-commerce empire is worth a whopping $57.6 billion and continues to grow rapidly as Jingdong works to becoming the largest online retailer on the globe.
Liu ’s journey is emblematic of the rags-to-riches story, as he once made a living taking on random coding gigs, having taught himself how to program. It is by virtue of his relentless determination that JD.com is the king of retail today, having survived harsh economic times and still managed to pick up and prosper. This was in 2003 when there was a SARS outbreak that effectively rendered human interaction redundant, forcing Richard Liu to close down 12 of his shops.
For any other average entrepreneur, being forced to shut down physical locations of a business that thrives on human interaction spells doom, but Richard Liu Qiangdong saw it as an opportunity to think out of the box. After bouncing off ideas with like-minded professionals, Richard Liu came up with the idea of taking business online, and that was the genesis of Jingdong.
At the time, the e-commerce sector was flooded with fraudulent entities that sold counterfeit items while nickel and diming their customers every chance they got. As Richard Liu knew how important ethics, honesty, and accountability are in a business model, he modeled his business alongside these strong fundamental values and designed a customer-eccentric business model. It is no wonder that, today, JD.com is one of the most trusted retailers all over the world with sales well over the billion mark.
Before Richard Liu founded Jingdong, he worked as the head of business and head of computers at Japan Life; a reputable health product company. He scored the job after completing his EMBA from the China Europe International Business School. This was in addition to his Sociology degree, which he had attained at Renmin University of China. It was after working for two years at Japan Life, that he branched out on his own to open a magneto-optics store in Beijing. He did good business and grew the venture into the largest retailer in China, JD.com.
There was a time when the fundamental analysis was turned down as a means of picking stocks. But there existed a loophole by ‘program traders’ who created flow with computer programs. There was a total lack of program trading at the time.
According to Gareth Henry, there was a lot of potential in the program yielding. Gareth Henry, however, asserts that the technique was not verified but it replicated and saw the rise of program trading.
So what exactly does it mean by quantitative analysis? Based on Gareth Henry, it is a method of comprehending the behavior through the use of mathematical and statistical modeling, research and measurement. The sole purpose of the quantitative analysis is to go through the large cases of variables involving trading volumes and asset prices. It also looks at how the world events can affect the assets prices.
The premonition of Gareth Henry has passed with quantitative analysis currently under by hedge funds and financial institutions. This caters for the large transactions involving the purchase and sale of many shares and securities. See more of Gareth Henry on facebook
Based on Gareth, the analysts can make use of the quantitative techniques to examine and analyze past events, with the current while anticipating for future ones. Gareth Henry also urges the individual investors to make use of the techniques.
The individual investors are assured of great value that goes beyond Wall Street through the quantitative application. The Governments across the world can also count on the quantitative analysis in the decision and policy-making processes. The technique has also been used to track and evaluate the statistical data that relates to the GDP and the figures in employment.
Henry believes that on its own, quantitative analysis has proven it is used as a key evaluation key. It is been included in investment funds. The combination between qualitative and quantitative analysis can aid the investors or analysts in gauging the strength of a product in the market.
