Harvesting Risk Premia in Alternative Asset Classes and Investment Strategies (New Haven, CT) 11-13 July 2016
This seminar has been jointly organised by EDHEC-Risk Institute and the Yale School of Management. It seeks to bring together asset allocation strategists to educate them better on risk and portfolio diversification. Increasingly, investors are turning to alternative investments for stronger returns and as a way of reducing portfolio risk. The seminar will be taken by three well-respected academicians - Professor Will N. Goetzmann, Professor K. Geert Rouwenhorst and Professor Frederic Blanc-Brude. The training will show participants how to deal with flawed data, non-Gaussian returns and illiquid assets. It will also present quantitative and qualitative techniques to control asset class exposures, and manage valuation, counterparty and liquidity risks.
