"Challenges for Asian Institutional Investors, Research-Based Solutions" seminar in Singapore on 20 January, 2011

On 20 January, 2011 at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, EDHEC-Risk Institute is organising a special event at which senior representatives from AXA Investment Managers, Deutsche Bank, and Société Générale will discuss how the research conducted by EDHEC-Risk Institute with the support of their organisations can help Asian institutional investors overcome the challenges they face.

Indeed, from insurance companies and asset managers to provident funds and sovereign investment vehicles, Asian institutional investors are facing economic and regulatory environments that challenge their ability to meet their long-term goals.

International monetary crises have put inflation and interest rate risks back on the agenda and increased the risks of asset price bubbles. At the same time, the unintended consequences of new accounting and prudential frameworks are hampering long-term investors’ ability to make the necessary asset allocation decisions and adopt suitable investment and risk management approaches.

A considerable share of EDHEC-Risk Institute’s recent research is devoted to the challenges facing institutional investors. One of its major findings is that conventional asset allocation and risk management are not optimal; the Institute advocates instead a dynamic asset allocation framework that allows long-term investors to integrate risk management and asset allocation seamlessly and to combine the benefits of risk diversification, risk hedging, and risk control. Another great concern of the Institute is research into the interaction of regulation and institutional investment. This research has enabled the Institute to suggest responses to the risk and investment management challenges posed by regulatory developments.

The event will also be an opportunity to present the research agenda of EDHEC Risk Institute–Asia, EDHEC-Risk Institute’s platform for generating and disseminating academic insights into investment management issues of global importance and particular relevance for investors and institutions in Asia, of which the official inauguration will be taking place on 21 Janaury, 2011.

For further information, please contact Aslene Kho at aslene.kho@edhec-risk.com. Registration is required before 14 January, 2011. Due to the limited number of places available, priority will be given to institutional investors, consultants, and senior representatives from investment management and investment banking groups.
