Successful inaugural edition of EDHEC-Risk Days Asia in Singapore


In 2004, EDHEC-Risk Institute created a circuit of conferences in Europe. These allow industry practitioners and academic representatives to meet and exchange views on the themes most relevant to the investment management industry and enable EDHEC-Risk Institute to disseminate the results of its academic research programmes.

In 2012, the Institute exported its conference concept to Asia in order to provide Asian-based finance professionals with state-of-the-art applied research in investment and risk management. The EDHEC-Risk Days Asia 2012 conference attracted some 800 participants including end investors, traditional and alternative investment managers, wealth managers, and policy-makers from twenty-eight countries and four continents (Asia, Australasia, Europe and North America).

The inaugural edition of the conference was jointly opened by Frédéric Ducoulombier, Director of EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia, and Jacqueline Loh, Assistant Managing Director, Policy, Risk & Surveillance, Monetary Authority of Singapore.

The event included two special roundtables organised in conjunction with exclusive media partners CNBC and Dow Jones, at which professors Raman Uppal and Ekkehart Boehmer discussed their work on financial regulation and high frequency trading with a panel of high-level experts from the Asian financial industry. Presentations of the latest work conducted by EDHEC professors and researchers from EDHEC-Risk Institute’s team in Singapore, together with representatives from the research teams in London and Nice, focused on themes such as advances in equity investment, equity portfolio construction, passive investment and indexing, the determinants of private equity performance, next-generation commodity investing, and hedge fund allocation, modelling and performance. Sponsor workshops completed the two-day agenda.

Following the success of the inaugural EDHEC-Risk Days Asia 2012 conference, the second edition is scheduled to take place in May 2013 in Singapore. For further information on sponsorship opportunities for the conference, please contact sponsorship@edhec-risk.com or visit the dedicated web page.
