EDHEC-Risk Institute Seminar Series in Singapore and Hong Kong

In the first week of November, EDHEC-Risk Institute will be running and participating in four seminars in Singapore and Hong Kong on the themes of equity indices and benchmarking, "fees at risk" and risk management.

Stoyan Stoyanov, Head of Research with EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia, will open the series by presenting EDHEC-Risk Institute's research on Equity Indices and Benchmarks at the Fullerton Hotel in Singapore on the morning of November 2. The presentation will run from 8.30am (registration) to 11.00am. Professor Stoyanov will be exploring enhanced index and optimal benchmark construction and looking at new forms of indices and benchmarks.

At lunchtime on November 2, at an event organised by CFA Singapore, Bernd Scherer, Professor of Finance, EDHEC Business School, Member, EDHEC-Risk Institute and Board Member, London Quant Group, will be making a presentation on hedging the risks of asset-based fees. Professor Scherer will provide valuable suggestions on hedging both the production risk (fees at risk) and the capital market related business risk (redemptions by clients either to shed risk or to raise cash).

On the morning of November 5, Lionel Martellini, Scientific Director of EDHEC-Risk Institute, will be conducting a seminar on the same theme at the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong. Professor Martellini will notably be drawing a distinction between indices and benchmarks, addressing the key issue of the optimal use of indices and benchmarks in institutional investment, and explaining the importance of a good index in asset management and asset-liability management. By reviewing the limitations of traditional indices, Professor Martellini will also discuss the improved ‘efficient’ equity indices designed by the research team at EDHEC-Risk Institute and present the FTSE EDHEC-Risk Efficient IndexTM Series.

Professor Martellini will then close the Hong Kong chapter by presenting EDHEC-Risk Institute's risk management philosophy at a lunch-time event at the Mandarin Oriental on November 5 organised in partnership with CFA Institute entitled "Paradigm Shifts in Investment Management: Why Risk Management Adds Value in Asset Management."
