Alternative Investments Asset Management Forum 5th October, 2006 - Zurich, Switzerland Hedge Fund Investments for Pension Funds

The Center of Competence Finance in Zurich (CCFZ) is initiating a new knowledge transfer platform for the asset management industry. The Asset Management Forum brings together leading researchers, academics and practitioners to share their know-how, their perspectives and ideas. The first event of its kind will be devoted to the topic of Hedge Fund Investments for Pension Funds.

Following the opening address, the forum will consist of three lectures by academic experts, two talks by practitioners, and a panel session allowing participants to interactively share and challenge the views of the speakers.

François-Serge Lhabitant, Associate Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School, will be speaking on the theme, "Hedge Funds: Sell-side Investments versus Buy-side Demand".

Most sell-side hedge fund portfolios suffer from over-diversification, alpha-beta confusion, hot-money flows, and lack of portfolio construction and risk management principles. François-Serge Lhabitant will present solutions to these problems, which have been implemented by sophisticated large-size buy-side pension funds and endowments.
