EDHEC-Risk Institute is one of the leading international academic research centers; its mission is to build bridges between the academic and professional communities by informing the industry of the latest research in asset management and by exchanging views on all relevant topics of the day.
EDHEC-Risk Institute has a research team in the United States and a research partnership with Princeton University. There are 500,000 US-based recipients of our research, and several hundred North American finance professionals have received formal training from EDHEC-Risk Institute over the past five years. In 2012, EDHEC-Risk Institute signed two strategic partnership agreements with the Operations Research and Financial Engineering department of Princeton University to set up a joint research programme in the area of risk and investment management, and with Yale School of Management to set up joint certified executive training courses in North America and Europe in the area of investment management. At the second EDHECPrinceton Institutional Money Management Conference in New York on 3 April, 2013, EDHEC-Risk Institute and Princeton Universitys experts presented more than 150 financial industry representatives with the most recent results from their research projects focusing on major issues for institutional investment management.
In the middle of the last decade, the EDHEC-Risk Institute launched a series of research conferences targeted at the financial services industry which have now become a point of reference in Europe.
With the internationalization of its activities, EDHEC-Risk is launching a North American-focused investment conference for institutional investors, traditional and alternative investment managers and policy-makers. The event will take place in New York on October 8-9, 2013 at the Crowne Plaza, Times Square, Manhattan.
Organized by an academic research center for the benefit of professionals, EDHEC-Risk Days North America will present the research conducted by EDHEC-Risk Institute and discuss it with the institutional investor and fund manager communities.
As such, the Institute wishes to enable participants at EDHEC-Risk Days North America 2013 to have access to the latest in the application of academic 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 will include two major conferences allowing 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 indexing and risk diversification, portfolio construction and risk management and smart beta investment. The conference will also be the occasion to evaluate the use of passive investment vehicles and their impact on the market. Results of exclusive indexing surveys will compare the latest usage of indices and investor perceptions. The roundtable will address questions about transparency and governance linked to the development of new indices.
On the second day, the Global Institutional Investment Conference will focus on global asset allocation and alternative investment for institutional investors and private wealth managers. It will present the results of EDHEC-Risk research on themes of great interest to institutional investors, including the construction of new liability-hedging portfolios for institutional investors, the the convergence between long-only investment and hedge funds, new research on infrastructure investing, liability-hedging portfolios and risk allocation.

The Concept: Research for Business
With EDHEC-Risk Days North America 2013, the Institute has created a new type of conference in the region that is aimed at providing professionals with state-of-the-art applied research in investment and risk management. This unique research is produced by the professors and researchers from EDHEC-Risk Institute, the premier asset management research center in Europe.
EDHEC-Risk Days North America will allow research results to be compared with the practices and needs of investment professionals in the North American region. This conference will focus predominantly on Indexation and Passive Investment issues.
The program will include 30 speakers and panelists who will be both academics and professionals. EDHEC has considerable experience with internationally renowned speakers.
Our independence and academic orientation, the conference format leaving time for both instruction and discussion, and the highly selective speaker panel combine to make EDHEC-Risk Days North America 2013 the must-attend conference for investment professionals who are concerned about maintaining best practices in technical and conceptual terms.
To ensure the exclusivity of the event, EDHEC-Risk Institute has decided to invite selected delegates to the event; they will be assessed by the Institute to ensure they add value to the conference.
The program format has a mix of plenary sessions, stream sessions, and workshops presented by our sponsors to cater to the needs and interests of institutional investors and asset allocators and infuse interaction and dialogue among financial professionals.
