EDHEC-Risk Institute Presentations in Shanghai, November 2010

Stoyan Stoyanov, Head of Research with EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia, will be speaking at a seminar on risk management organised by CFA China, participating in the 8th China Roundtable on Global Institutional Investments in Shanghai and presenting EDHEC-Risk Institute's research on equity indices and benchmarking at separate events in Shanghai on November 22 and 23.

The risk management seminar organised by CFA China, entitled "Diversification matters... but not for risk," will take place at the Regus Business Center. Stoyan Stoyanov will draw a distinction between diversification, hedging, and insurance addressing their role in risk management and in particular their relevance to controlling downside risk. The discussion is focused on how the three techniques can be combined in a unified approach providing downside risk control without limiting the upside potential of the portfolio. We demonstrate that diversification, hedging, and insurance are complementary rather than competing techniques for risk management.

For more information on this event, please contact Lynn Lin, Administrator, CFA China: Rm2138, CEO Suite, 21F Bank of Shanghai, 168 Yincheng Zhong Road, Pudong, Shanghai 200120, Tel: +86 21 5116 7150, or visit the following page.

At the Equity Indices & Benchmarking seminar, Stoyan Stoyanov will be exploring enhanced index and optimal benchmark construction and looking at new forms of indices and benchmarks. He will notably be drawing a distinction between indices and benchmarks, looking at 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.

A complimentary invitation to the Equity Indices & Benchmarking seminar is attached.

The 8th China Roundtable, organised by Asia Asset Management, will be taking place at the St. Regis Shanghai on November 23. The annual event is recognised as an important international conference for industry participants. This annual forum will bring together around 100 domestic fund managers and global fund managers from the Asia-Pacific region. More information on the event can be found here.
