Institutional Investment - September 28, 2010

EDHEC-Risk Institutional Days, December 8-9, 2010, Monaco

At the EDHEC-Risk Institutional Days in Monaco on December 8 and 9, 2010, academic experts from EDHEC-Risk will be presenting their research and discussing the results with the institutional investor and fund management communities. In 2010, EDHEC-Risk’s partnership with Investment & Pensions Europe will enable the institutional days to be held on the two days following the IPE Pension Fund Awards in Monaco, Europe’s largest gathering of pan-European pension funds, thus providing an exceptional opportunity for the awards ceremony attendees to take advantage of their visit to Monaco in order to bring themselves up-to-date with the latest developments in institutional investment research.

On the first day, the Indexation and Passive Investment Conference will focus on differentiating between indices and benchmarks and the consequences for the investment management process. EDHEC-Risk researchers will explore enhanced index and optimal benchmark construction and look at new forms of indices and benchmarks. The conference will also be the occasion to evaluate the use of passive investment vehicles, in particular ETFs, and of indices.

On the second day, the Global Institutional Investment Conference will present the results of EDHEC-Risk research on themes of great interest to institutional investors; these research results will be discussed with senior representatives from the finance industry. The conference will open with a session that will bring together institutional investors and regulators for a debate on the impact of regulations on the financial management of European pension funds. The conference will also provide a forum for comparing institutional investors’ and issuers’ needs for inflation-linked bonds, assessing the value of dynamic liability-driven investment from an integrated asset-liability management (ALM) perspective, and better comprehension of how to manage risk with sovereign wealth funds.

The second day of the conference will also feature two innovative seminars. At the Advanced Portfolio Construction Seminar, professors from EDHEC Business School and London Business School will explain how to use market indicators, such as prices or volatility, to optimise portfolio construction and will examine the role of real assets in long-term asset allocation. The Private Wealth Management Seminar will focus on the application of institutional money management techniques to private wealth management (PWM). As such, EDHEC-Risk will examine the current shortcomings of PWM; an overview of best practices for private ALM will put these shortcomings into perspective. Finally, the PhD Forum is the novelty of the 2010 edition of EDHEC Institutional Days. It will feature three presentations given by students from the EDHEC-Risk Institute PhD in Finance programme on their specialised research topics.
