In 2013, the second edition of the EDHEC-Risk Days Asia attracted close to 700 delegates from twenty-eight countries over four continents. This year again, the event is structured to appeal to institutional investors, traditional and alternative investment managers and policy-makers. The New Frontiers in Risk Allocation & Investment Management Conference is a two day event that will include multiple plenary and stream sessions and workshops that will allow professionals to review major industry challenges, explore state-of-the-art investment techniques and benchmark practices to research advances.
On the first day, the conference will explore beyond the traditional approach of fundamental indexation and look at smart beta allocation, new index and benchmark offerings in the universe of equity investing and risk management. The conference will also be the occasion to discover new research on portfolio construction and efficient risk diversification. The roundtable will address questions about index transparency and investor expectations.
On the second day, EDHEC-Risk Institute will present research on themes pertinent to institutional investors, including systematic strategies in long-only equity investing and alternative investments, high frequency trading, new research on infrastructure investing and risk parity. The Pensions Forum will look at the future of retirement provision in Asia, at the road towards better designed default options, cost efficiency and market regulation.
