EDHEC Professor Nikolaos Tessaromatis presents paper at EFAMA and World Finance annual conferences

Nikolaos Tessaromatis,
Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School
and Member of EDHEC-Risk Institute

Nikolaos Tessaromatis, Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School and Member of EDHEC-Risk Institute, recently participated in the 2014 European Financial Management Association Conference, organised in Rome on 25-26 June, 2014, where he presented his paper entitled, "Global Portfolio Management Under State Dependent Multiple Risk Premia", co-authored with Timotheos Angelidis. The paper assesses the benefits from international factor diversification under a regime-based portfolio construction framework that takes into account the dynamic changes in stock markets and shows that there are significant costs to investors who fail to pursue an international diversification strategy using sources of return other than the market premium and take into account the existence of regimes in portfolio construction and asset allocation. He also discussed the paper "Forward-Looking Measures of Higher-Order Dependencies with an Application to Portfolio Selection" authored by Alexander Kempf , Felix Brinkmann and Olaf Korn, which provides implied measures of higher-order dependencies between assets.

Nikolaos Tessaromatis was also invited to present his paper on "Global Portfolio Management Under State Dependent Multiple Risk Premia" in the Portfolio Management and Performance Evaluation session at the 5th World Finance Conference held in Venice on 2-4 July, 2014, where he also discussed the paper "The Influence of Market States on Security Returns", authored by Warren Thomson and Graham Bornholt, an empirical study investigating whether an industry’s past relative performance in the same market state as the current market state predicts the industry’s future performance.

More recently, on July 16-18, 2014, Dr. Tessaromatis was invited to participate in the CFA Program Partner Conference organised in Los Angeles by the CFA Institute.
