CFA Institute and EDHEC-Risk Institute Extend Cooperation to Asia-Pacific


In an effort to better serve the investment management community in the Asia-Pacific region, CFA Institute and EDHEC-Risk Institute have reinforced their executive education partnership to offer their Advances in Asset Allocation seminar in Singapore.

Having learned through the recent crises about the limited payoffs and significant risks of excessive reliance on asset selection models, and having witnessed the failure of diversification as sole risk management approach, investment managers and institutional investors are showing unprecedented interest in dynamic asset allocation and risk management approaches as a source of performance,” explains Professor Lionel Martellini, scientific director of EDHEC-Risk Institute and course leader.

Incorporating the latest research by EDHEC-Risk, the Advances in Asset Allocation seminar provides participants with an in-depth appreciation of the concepts and techniques needed to introduce hard risk constraints into asset allocation and create new risk-controlled investment solutions,” he adds.

The seminar is intended for investment management professionals who give advice on or participate in the design and implementation of asset allocation policies and portfolio models and for sell-side practitioners who develop new asset management and ALM solutions for investors. Previous seminars, in 2008 and 2009, have attracted more than 200 senior participants from a large cross-section of buy- and sell-side institutions in twenty-seven countries worldwide.

We are very pleased to continue our executive education partnership with CFA Institute and offer our popular Advances in Asset Allocation seminar in the Asia-Pacific region. The seminar’s focus on asset allocation and risk management has been vindicated by recent market events and the course provides a conceptual framework for the future of the industry and delivers practical tools to improve portfolio construction, asset allocation, and risk management," says Frédéric Ducoulombier, Director of Executive Education, EDHEC-Risk Institute.

The Asia-Pacific offering of the seminar will take place in Singapore, May 18-20, 2010. It will be followed by a North-American offering organised in New York, July 13-15, 2010.
