EDHEC-Risk Smart Beta Day Europe 2017 (London) 21 March
Attending the EDHEC-Risk Smart Beta Day is a fantastic opportunity for institutional investor and financial advisory communities to learn more about the research carried out by EDHEC-Risk Institute. The conference will enable participants to have access to the latest conceptual advances and research results in smart beta investing and to discuss their implications and applications with researchers who combine expertise of advanced financial techniques with a sound awareness of their industry relevance. The event is structured to appeal to asset owners and their direct investment consultants and financial advisors. It will focus on smart beta indexation, factor investing and smart beta solutions and will present the latest research results on the challenges of smart beta investing for institutional investors, the best methods for the construction of multi-factor indices and the issue of choosing between approaches based on picking factor champion stocks, or rather maintaining an approach that focuses more on constructing portfolios with good beta properties, analysing the costs of smart beta strategies, evaluation criteria of a smart beta index and the case for long/short multi-factor strategies.
