Yale School of Management – EDHEC-Risk Institute Certificate in Risk and Investment Management: Overview

Having learned through the recent crises about the limitation of existing investment paradigms, investment managers and institutional investors are showing unprecedented interest in innovative forms of investment solutions. At the same time, recent advances in academic research have paved the way for the development of a new generation of financial engineering techniques aimed at improving investor welfare. In this changing and challenging market environment it has become crucial for senior investment professionals to keep abreast of the latest research advances and state-of-the-art investment practices.

It is against this backdrop that EDHEC-Risk Institute and the Yale School of Management are now jointly offering top-quality executive education courses based on the exceptional strength and relevance of academic research conducted by both Yale SOM and EDHEC-Risk finance faculty.

The Yale School of Management – EDHEC-Risk Executive Seminar Series

November 2013 saw the beginning of a series of joint executive education seminars around the unifying theme, “Advanced Risk and Investment Management”, throughout the U.S. and Europe. The second edition of the seminar series will start again from January 2016.

The seminars provide relevant academic insights with respect to some of the most important dimensions of the investment process, including implementing disciplined risk and asset allocation decisions, efficiently harvesting factor risk premia across and within traditional and alternative asset classes, and designing truly meaningful forms of liability-driven or goal-based investment solutions.
