ERI has also created two new international entities. EDHEC Infrastructure, supported by Singapore's monetary authorities, conducts research on the financing and management of infrastructure investments. Scientific Beta, based in London, Singapore, Nice, Paris, Boston and Tokyo, designs alternative indices to traditional market indices with 34 billion in assets under management as of June 30, 2018 for the world's largest pension funds and sovereign wealth funds. This dynamism of Finance research creates a natural attraction for the EDHEC programmes in Finance irrigated by this academic excellence and an "EDHEC for Business" model, which the PhD in Finance and Master's degree in Finance, ranked 1st by the Financial Times in 2017, benefit from.
