Bringing Research Insights to
Institutional Investment Professionals
Organised by an academic research centre for the benefit of professionals, EDHEC-Risk Days Europe presents the research conducted by EDHEC-Risk Institute and discusses it with the institutional investor and fund manager communities.
As such, the Institute wishes to enable participants at EDHEC-Risk Days Europe 2013 to have access to the latest in financial theory and research and to debate and discuss these issues with researchers who not only have cutting-edge knowledge of analytical and research methods in finance but are also fully aware of the consequences of these methods for the financial industry.
The event is structured to appeal to institutional investors, traditional and alternative investment managers and policy-makers. The conference includes two major events that will allow professionals to review major industry challenges, explore state-of-the-art investment techniques and benchmark practices to research advances.
On the first day, the Indexation and Passive Investment Conference will focus on exploring enhanced index and optimal benchmark construction and look at new forms of indices and benchmarks not only for equities, but also in the fixed-income and commodities universes. The conference will also be the occasion to evaluate the use of passive investment vehicles and their impact on the market. Results of an exclusive survey of European asset owners will highlight the latest trends in ETF usage. The roundtable will address questions about regulation and governance linked to the development of new indices.
On the second day, the Global Institutional Investment Conference will present the results of EDHEC-Risk research on themes of great interest to institutional investors, including risk and regulation in European pension funds, the construction of new liability-hedging portfolios for institutional investors, Solvency II, the convergence between long-only investment and hedge funds, new research on infrastructure investing, liability-hedging portfolios and risk allocation. It will bring together institutional investors, pension protection organisations and regulators for a debate on regulatory developments and their implications for the management of pension funds.
