Where Academics and Practitioners Meet
The Edhec Hedge Fund Days are organised by an academic research centre for the benefit of professionals.
The aim of the Edhec Hedge Fund Days is to present the results of the alternative investment research conducted by the Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre and to discuss these results with the institutional investor and fund manager communities.
around four major themes:
What are the practices of European institutional investors with regards to alternative investment? Hedge fund investments: what are the new requirements in terms of reporting, performance, and risk measurement? Optimal substitution or risk diversification: what is the place of hedge funds in asset allocation? What are the benefits of integrating hedge funds into Asset-Liability Management? New frontiers for institutional fund management: what is the role of hedge funds in a core-satellite model
Do funds of hedge funds deliver alphas? What are the determinants of performance for funds of hedge funds? Is institutionalisation a threat to the profitability of funds of funds? What are the reasons behind the lacklustre performance of hedge funds in recent years? What is the academic evidence on the capacity effect controversy?
How can one use hedge funds to optimise the risk budget? What methods are available to take into account the specific risks of hedge funds in the portfolio construction phase? What are the limits of naïve diversification and due diligence approaches for the management of operational risk?
What state of the art concepts and techniques are available to increase the added value of asset allocation in the alternative universe? Is tactical style allocation the new frontier for active hedge fund portfolio management? How can indices be used to implement allocation to the various hedge fund styles?
