Institutional Investment 3rd Asia Investment Management Summit for Insurance 24-25 November, 2014 - Singapore
As insurers battle challenging economic conditions and a barrage of financial regulation, identifying the likely drivers of change and responding effectively will be critical to success. Investment strategies, risk management, product lines and operational processes are all targets for a whole new way of thinking across the industry.

Insurers need to mitigate the implications of low yields in an environment where there is a constrained supply of higher quality, high-yielding assets, due in part to central bank policies in operation around the globe. The tapering of QE and the volatility that comes, combined with regulatory uncertainty across the financial services industry, is causing many to re-consider their investment strategies.

Many insurers have already increased allocations to investment grade and high yield debt and are exploring non-traditional asset classes to source additional income, generate diversification and deliver improved correlation benefits.

At the 3rd Asia Investment Management Summit for Insurance, numerous experts will discuss the strategies needed to succeed volatile financial markets ahead of interest rate hikes. So how does one position their portfolio for such a scenario for 2015?

The 3rd Asia Investment Management Summit for Insurance is the premium peer networking, informative event for Asia Pacific Insurance CEOs, CFOs and CIOs, as they navigate market uncertainties, and seek to validate their strategies, develop better-
yielding investment models, benchmark risk appetites and returns, discuss their markets and the rebalancing and growth of their portfolios.

Tim Whittaker, Senior Research Engineer at EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia, will be speaking at the event on the topic of "Benchmarking Infrastructure Investment", and will be joined by Frédéric Ducoulombier, Director at EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia, who will be presenting a session entitled "From Smart Beta to Smart Factor Indices".
