Asset Allocation European Capital Markets Institute 2011 Annual Conference: Unravelling the Puzzle - Challenges for Global Asset Allocation 27 June, 2011 - Brussels, Belgium
The European Capital Markets Institute (ECMI) is proud to introduce its 2011 annual conference bringing together the best of academia, industry and policy making to discuss the challenges for global asset allocation from four different perspectives:
  • Global outlook in asset allocation: Where will systemic risk reside?
  • Funding corporate governance: Opportunities and challenges coming from debt markets
  • Asset management at a crossroads: Do we need new regulatory and theoretical foundations for a better asset allocation?
  • Economic and regulatory challenges for capital markets: The results of liberalisation and future steps
Each of the four sessions will feature a keynote speech and a panel.

EDHEC Business School professors of finance, Florencio López de Silanes and Sergio M. Focardi, will be participating in the panel discussions in the sessions on "Funding corporate governance" and "Asset management at a crossroads" respectively.
