    New Development in Portable Beta and Portable Alpha Strategies
    Research work recently carried out by the Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre and sponsored by Eurex demonstrates that active portfolio managers, who attempt to generate abnormal profits through bets on well-identified risks, can benefit from using suitably packaged derivatives satellite portfolios as portable alpha and beta vehicles. These portfolios, based on active asset or sector allocation decisions, can be used either as standalone absolute return alpha providers, or as overlay portfolios customized to help managers modify the exposure of their portfolios with respect to a variety of sources of risks on which they have no desire to bet.
