Paradigm Shifts in Investment Management: Why Risk Management Adds Value in Asset Management

A considerable share of the research work carried out by EDHEC-Risk Institute in recent times has been devoted to the challenges facing institutional investors in general, and pension funds in particular.

One of the key points of EDHEC-Risk’s research has been to show that the traditional asset management approaches based on the diversification of risks and relatively static forms of asset allocation were not optimal and did not allow efficient risk management to be implemented. The challenge facing institutional investors and asset managers is to shift from a portfolio management logic to a risk management logic.

At a special series of presentations in Europe, Felix Goltz, PhD, Head of Applied Research at EDHEC-Risk Institute, will be giving a detailed and reasoned summary of the institutional investment research carried out by the research centre in recent times and pointing towards the developments that can be expected over the next few years in the light of advances in academic research.

Felix Goltz will also be presenting the EDHEC-Risk Institute Executive MSc in Risk and Investment Management. This postgraduate programme is designed to be completed in seventeen months of part-time study and is formatted to be compatible with professional schedules.
