Risk Management CFA China Seminar on “Diversification Matters…but not for Downside Risk Control” 24 November, 2010 - Shanghai, China
The global financial crisis has shifted investors’ attention to risk. This seminar, organised by CFA China, will draw a distinction between diversification, hedging, and insurance, addressing their roles in risk management, and examining their relevance to controlling downside risk.

The discussion will focus on how the three techniques can be combined in a unified approach to provide downside risk control without limiting the upside potential of the portfolio. It aims to demonstrate that diversification, hedging, and insurance are complementary, rather than competing, techniques for risk management.
