Frédéric Ducoulombier speaking on smart beta at The Asset 2nd ETF Asia Summit in Singapore on 16 November, 2016

Frédéric Ducoulombier, Founding Director of EDHEC Risk Institute-Asia, will be speaking on the theme of smart beta at The Asset 2nd ETF Asia Summit in Singapore on 16 November, 2016.

The summit will bring together investors, asset managers and product providers to discuss and debate the factors driving the development of the ETF market in Asia.

Frédéric Ducoulombier will be participating as a panellist in the session entitled "The future of smart beta in Asia". Smart beta attracted interest from Asian investors as they increasingly seek to diversify. But a lack of understanding of the product is slowing its adoption. Will Asian investors embrace smart beta ETFs? The session will examine the following questions:

  • How are smart beta products developed?
  • How should investors evaluate these products?
  • How can smart beta fit into an investor’s portfolio?
Frédéric Ducoulombier is Business Development Director, Asia ex-Japan and the Middle East with ERI Scientific Beta and is a member of the ERI Scientific Beta Executive Committee and Corporate Director of ERI Scientific Beta. He is also directly responsible for compliance, governance and transparency at ERI Scientific Beta. Frédéric Ducoulombier has spent much of his career at EDHEC and more particularly at EDHEC-Risk Institute, where he was in charge of EDHEC-Risk Executive Education and then EDHEC-Risk Institute—Asia.
