Asset Allocation Asset Allocation Summit 2005 27th-28th June, 2005 - London, UK A two day conference covering all aspects of strategic and tactical asset allocation, current strategy and alternative investing.

The theory and practice of Strategic Asset Allocation is undergoing dramatic change. In the space of a decade, the “one-size fits all” pension scheme benchmark has become virtually obsolete, but opinions are still evolving as to the most appropriate framework in which to manage pension scheme assets in the 21st Century. The long-held conventional wisdom that equities should be the dominant asset class is under attack, and many pension schemes are allocating new money solely to bonds and alternatives. In recent months, European governments have started to respond to pension fund demand for ultra-long bonds, and the first longevity bonds have been issued.

The Asset Allocation Summit examines the evolution of pension scheme benchmarks and explores new ideas for liability-driven investing, absolute return mandates and the use of structured products for managing pension scheme risk. Recent developments in bond mandates come under the microscope, while delegates have the opportunity to consider the claims of a wide range of alternative asset classes.

Key conference themes include:

  • Strategic asset allocation
  • Global strategy and economics
  • Tactical asset allocation
  • Beyond hedge funds - the case for other alternatives
  • Emerging markets
  • TAA for emerging markets
  • Developments in portfolio mandates
  • Bond markets - recent developments
  • Using derivatives to add alpha
  • Equities and binds - market drivers
The summit brings together a number of Europe’s leading practitioners - fund managers, actuaries, academics and consultants - to discuss the new ideas competing for acceptance in the world of Strategic Asset Allocation.

Lionel Martellini, Professor of Finance at Edhec Business School and Scientific Director of the Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre, will be speaking at the event on "The role of structured products in asset allocation".

Members of the Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre website are entitled to a 15% discount on the delegate fee.
