Executive seminars organised in Singapore to address the subjects of "Execution and Trading on Equity Markets" and "State-of-the-Art Commodities Investing"


EDHEC-Risk Institute is holding two intensive seminars in Singapore in March and April, drawing from the latest results of its research in the following fields:

The first, one-day seminar delivered by Ekkehart Boehmer, Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School and Member of EDHEC-Risk Institute, a distinguished expert in equity market microstructure, will equip participants with a sound understanding of the structure and microstructure of today's execution venues, a workable knowledge of transaction cost analysis and best execution techniques, and insights on regulatory hotspots.

It is aimed at buy-side and sell-side investment professionals who advise on or participate in the design and implementation of execution and trading strategies and is also relevant for practitioners working in financial regulation, supervision, and enforcement.

The second seminar, taking place over two days, designed and delivered by a leading authority in commodity research, Joëlle Miffre, Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School and Member of EDHEC-Risk Institute, will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of commodities markets and investments, detailed knowledge of commodity futures pricing, and state-of-the-art techniques for strategic and tactical asset allocation to commodities, and will also shed academic light on the financialisation of commodity markets and the role of speculators.

The programme should appeal to commodity fund managers wishing to keep abreast of the latest commodity research, to investment professionals and administrators working for institutional investors and family offices that are considering or have implemented commodity investment programmes, and to consultants and key account representatives advising high net worth individuals and institutions on commodity investments.

For further information about either of these two seminars, please contact Karen Sequeira at karen.sequeira@edhec-risk.com or on +65 6631 8575.
