Investment Management FT Investment Management Summit: Asia 18 June 2015 - Hong Kong
Investable assets in Asia are estimated at over US$10 trillion and predicted to grow by 10% annually over the next 10 years. Where will this growth come from? What will shape investment choices next year and in the next five years? How are asset managers adapting their strategies to meet heightened investor expectations against a backdrop of uneven global recovery and the potential for interest rate normalization?

Bringing together senior investors from across the region and internationally, the FT Investment Management Summit: Asia is an unrivalled forum for informed and stimulating debate on investment strategies that can most effectively protect and grow the expanding capital base of Asia’s pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, life insurance companies, endowments and other large institutions.

Frédéric Ducoulombier, Founding Director, EDHEC Risk Institute - Asia, will be participating as a panellist in the session entitled "Beating the Market – Passive, Active or Rules Based Strategies?" moderated by Kylie Wong, Managing Editor of Ignites Asia. High costs and the desire for greater yield are driving growing numbers of investors to reassess their allocations between passive and active strategies, with strategic beta approaches blurring the lines between the two. The session will examine the following questions:
  • In this new environment what does the future hold for active funds?
  • Are some markets more suited to passive investing than others?
  • Is now the right time for Asia-based investors to tap the smart beta market?
  • Can they achieve sufficient diversification of their smart beta investments?
  • Why are some institutions still skeptical about this strategy?
Frédéric Ducoulombier is Business Development Director, Asia ex-Japan and the Middle East with ERI Scientific Beta and is a member of the ERI Scientific Beta Executive Committee and Corporate Director of ERI Scientific Beta. He is also directly responsible for compliance, governance and transparency at ERI Scientific Beta. Frédéric Ducoulombier has spent much of his career at EDHEC and more particularly at EDHEC-Risk Institute, where he was in charge of EDHEC-Risk Executive Education and then EDHEC-Risk Institute—Asia.
