April 19-20, 2012 – London
Early bird available before February 20
Drawing on the expertise developed at the EDHEC-Risk Institute, the first part of the seminar equips participants with both the technical and conceptual tools that will allow them to better understand the limits and benefits of different portfolio construction approaches. The second part of the seminar discusses portfolio construction strategies applied in equity portfolio management and alternative indexing strategies.
This exclusive seminar is presented in a highly accessible manner by instructors who combine academic expertise and industry experience. It strikes a balance between exploration of new models and a study of applications.
