Indexes and Benchmarking Complimentary webinars on Smart Beta investing organised by ERI Scientific Beta Tuesday July 2, 2013 (2pm-3pm CET) – Wednesday July 24, 2013 (3pm-4pm CET) – Friday September 20, 2013 (3pm-4pm CET)
As part of its policy of transferring know-how to the industry, EDHEC-Risk Institute has set up ERI Scientific Beta, a new initiative to promote greater transparency not only of the benefits, but also of the risks and limitations of new forms of weighting equity indices.

ERI Scientific Beta wants to change practices in the index industry with its "More for Less" initiative. Overall, the idea is to offer more transparency, more choice and more risk analysis at lower cost in the area of smart beta indices.

Since April 22, 2013, ERI Scientific Beta has notably been allowing investors to access 2,440 smart beta indices with full transparency and in the best economic conditions in the market. These smart beta indices are representative of the academically-proven diversification/deconcentration strategies. They are available on the Scientific Beta platform.

Since we believe that smart beta is a new frontier for the investment industry, research and education on this subject are a core part of ERI Scientific Beta's strategy. That is why we are inviting interested parties to participate in a series of complimentary webinars on the subject of smart beta investing:
