EDHEC-Risk Institute and Princeton University to co-organise institutional money management conference in New York

28.02.2012
At a conference that aims to inform practitioners about the latest research insights into institutional money management, leading finance professors from EDHEC-Risk Institute and Princeton University will be presenting research results on investment benchmarks and asset allocation strategies at the Princeton Club of New York in New York City on April 27 next.

The day-long EDHEC-PRINCETON Institutional Money Management Conference represents the first time that these prestigious institutions have joined forces to present their academic research results in finance and the usefulness of their conclusions for the industry to professionals.

Following an introduction on the theme of significant current developments in the investment industry by Lionel Martellini, Raman Uppal and Frank J. Fabozzi of EDHEC-Risk Institute will be looking respectively at equity portfolio construction with better constraints and new forms of fixed-income benchmarks for performance-seeking and liability-hedging portfolios. The morning presentations will be completed with a presentation by John Mulvey of Princeton University on dynamic long-short commodity investment strategies.

The afternoon sessions will feature presentations on asset allocation and risk management by Yacine Aït-Sahalia of Princeton, portfolio selection with alternatives by Jakub Jurek of Princeton, asset allocation decisions in the presence of regime switches by René Garcia of EDHEC-Risk, and long-term investing with short-term constraints by Lionel Martellini.

With one of the aims of the conference being to present state-of-the-art academic research in a relevant and easy-to-follow way, the conference will appeal to all finance professionals and will be of particular interest to institutional investment specialists and members of the press.

About EDHEC-Risk Institute
Since 2001, EDHEC has been pursuing an ambitious policy in terms of international research. This policy, known as “Research for Business”, aims to make EDHEC an academic institution of reference for the industry in a small number of areas in which the school has reached critical mass in terms of expertise and research results.

Among these areas, asset and risk management have occupied privileged positions, leading to the creation in 2001 of a major research facility: EDHEC-Risk Institute. This institute now boasts a team of 80 permanent professors, engineers and support staff, as well as 18 research associates from the financial industry and 6 affiliate professors.

EDHEC-Risk Institute is located at campuses in Singapore, which was established at the invitation of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the City of London in the United Kingdom, and Nice, France. In addition, it has a research team located in the United States.

The philosophy of the institute is to validate its work by publication in prestigious academic journals, but also to make it available to professionals and to participate in industry debate through its Position Papers, published studies and conferences. Each year, EDHEC-Risk organises two conferences for professionals in order to present the results of its research, one in London (EDHEC-Risk Days – Europe) and one in Singapore (EDHEC-Risk Days – Asia), attracting more than 2,000 professional delegates.

To ensure the distribution of its research to the industry, EDHEC-Risk also provides professionals with access to its website, www.edhec-risk.com, which is entirely devoted to international risk and asset management research. The website, which has more than 50,000 regular visitors, is aimed at professionals who wish to benefit from EDHEC-Risk’s analysis and expertise in the area of applied portfolio management research. Its monthly newsletter is distributed to more than 1,000,000 readers.

EDHEC-Risk Institute also has highly significant executive education activities for professionals. In partnership with CFA Institute, it has developed advanced seminars based on its research which are available to CFA charterholders and have been taking place since 2008 in New York, Singapore and London.

EDHEC-Risk Institute has an original PhD in Finance programme which, in addition to its highly selective residential track for young talents worldwide, has an executive track for high level professionals who already have masters’ degrees from prestigious universities and significant industry experience. Complementing the core faculty, this unique PhD in Finance programme has highly prestigious affiliate faculty from universities such as Princeton, Wharton, Oxford, Chicago and CalTech.

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.

Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...
