EDHEC-Risk Institute and CFA Institute to reinforce their executive education partnership

Written on 28 September 2012.

The course aims to provide investment practitioners with the tools to better understand the limits and benefits of different portfolio construction approaches, and to discuss alternative equity index strategies.

The two-day programme is intended for finance practitioners who contribute to the design and implementation of portfolio construction models and is also insightful for investment professionals who analyse or decide on the adoption of appropriate model portfolios or benchmarks for equity investments, or who are interested in customising their strategic equity benchmark.

The event will take place on 20-21 November, 2012 in Singapore and on 12-13 February, 2013 in London. The seminar will be conducted by EDHEC Business School Professor, Raman Uppal, and EDHEC-Risk Institute Head of Applied Research, Doctor Felix Goltz. Professor Uppal is a specialist in optimal portfolio selection and asset allocation in dynamic environments, valuation of securities in capital markets, risk management, and exchange rates, and he is the co-recipient of the first prize from S&P Indices at the first annual SPIVA Awards. Doctor Felix Goltz’s research focuses on asset allocation and on indexing and passive investments across traditional and alternative investments. He is also Co-Head of the Indices & Benchmarking programme conducted by EDHEC-Risk Institute.
