Jointly organised by CFA Institute and EDHEC-Risk Institute, the Advances in Asset Allocation Seminar takes stock of the latest industry trends and research advances in asset allocation to clarify the sometimes fuzzy distinction between true innovation and mere marketing claims. It also provides participants with an in-depth appreciation of the concepts and techniques that will shape the future of investment management.
Presented in a highly accessible manner by an instructor who combines academic expertise and industry experience, the seminar strikes a balance between exploration of new models and a study of applications.
Lionel Martellini, PhD is Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School and Scientific Director of EDHEC-Risk Institute.
