EDHEC to organise the fourth edition of the EDHEC Alternative Investment Days

The EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre will be staging the fourth edition of the EDHEC Alternative Investment Days at the ExCeL Centre in London on December 9 and 10 next. The conference aims to present the applied research conducted by the EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre with leading pension fund managers and to discuss its results with the institutional investor and fund manager communities.

The first day of the EDHEC Alternative Investment Days, with the Hedge Funds Summit, will focus on the future of the hedge fund industry. In the first morning and during the Hedge Fund Roundtable of Global Thought Leaders plenary session, leading figures from the global alternative investment industry, foremost institutional investors, senior officers from regulatory authorities, and chief executives of non-financial corporations will look at the controversial issue of shareholder activism. In the afternoon, stream sessions will examine the new frontiers of an industry being dramatically remodelled by institutionalisation and advances in asset allocation techniques.

The second day of the conference with the Alternative Investment Conference will first centre on the integration of alternative investments in institutional portfolios, especially during the plenary session entitled Financial Engineering and Global Alternative Portfolios for Institutional Investors. The Alternative Investment Conference will also survey the latest trends in the alternative investment space, with the New Frontiers in Alternative Investment plenary session. Senior officers from Europe’s largest pension funds and EDHEC researchers will present state-of-the-art approaches for optimal use of alternative investments in asset-liability management. Investment managers and academics will examine stimulating product and strategy innovations affecting the various alternative classes and bring new insights into alternative asset allocation, risk management and performance measurement.
